Save the date for the bigger, better A-Town Rumble! The Rumble will be a three-day rally with hotel (cheap!), great rides to historic sites, prizes and awards, and gymkhana. The A-Town Rumble is a fundraiser for the Type 1 Diabetes Research Foundation, and we have a lofty goal of raising $10K this year.

July 10–12, 2015

Trailer: http://youtu.be/kSu7i1tu9-M

Cheers,
Dan

Yes I hope to see you there, Edgar!

I have plotted out a nice Sunday return ride just for you downstaters, which I will lead if there is sufficient interest:

Yay!

We are getting quite a few registrations, pretty good for so early in the season, I think.

Seven of our 10 rooms are booked. We will not reserve more until the last three are booked. However, note that the hotel overall is getting close to being sold-out that weekend. Remember, there is no penalty for canceling a room by June 25. So please reserve rooms now so everybody can be in the same hotel!

Fern's a hero in my book for showing up at Stroudsburg just for the day.

You downstaters should organize a ride up together!

I might have to do the one day thing to the rumble also if I have to work. I see my daughter every weekend so I also have to rearrange that with the mother.

We added to our block of rooms, so there are still spots available. The hotel has extended the deadline for cancellation without penalty until Wednesday, July 8.

More info here.

I'll be leaving on Friday morning. Any ideas for a route with only back roads to get there?

The route that Bloop43 (John) and I took down there last weekend is quite nice. There are some urban sections, but lots of countryside. It's a long ride, though—about 5 hours from midtown. By comparison, if you took the Palisades to I-87 you could be here in 3 hours.

Get to Paramus, N.J.
Route 17 north to Seven Lakes Drive in Sloatsburg, N.Y.
Seven Lakes Drive through the Harriman State Park
Route 6 west (briefly) to SR 293 north (map)
293 to SR 9W north in West Point
9W to US 44 east in Highland
Cross the Mid Hudson Bridge to Poughkeepsie
44 to SR 376 north
376 a few blocks to SR 9G north (map)
9G to Hudson, follow Route 23B (Columbia Street) to US 9 north (map)
9 for 6 miles, left at fork to 9J north (map)
9J to Rensselaer

FROM RENSSELAER, QUICKEST WAY TO THE HOTEL:
Route 9 north / US 20 west across the river to Albany and immediately get on I-787 north (map)
I-787 to I-90 west
I-90 to I-87 north
I-87 to Exit 6: SR 7 and SR 2 (Troy-Schenectady Road) east
0.5 miles to the Latham Circle
From the circle, take Route 9 north. The hotel entrance is almost immediately on the right.

FROM RENSSELAER, AVOIDING THE INTERSTATES:
Route 9 south / US 20 east to US 4 north in East Greenbush (map)
4 to SR 378 (High Street) in Troy (map)
378 over the river to US 9 north in Loudonville (3.5 miles)
9 to Latham: Exit right to the Latham Circle
From the circle, take Route 9 north. The hotel entrance is almost immediately on the right.
Note: Route 9 passes under the Latham circle. You must exit to the circle, or you'll miss the hotel entrance. (map)


The 9G–9–23B–9J–9/20–4–378–9–2 part of the route is almost exactly the Ramble 'n Amble ride, though of course we'll be going in the other direction.

Oh yes, there are simpler ways to get here. You could even take Route 9 all the way from Manhattan to Latham. But, meh.

Thank you Ramblerdan and Papafern for your suggestion. All we need now is good weather!
