New York – Road Bike Rental – Hudson River via Cliff Road

- Region Americas
- Country United States
- City New York
This is a very popular ride for NYC cyclists looking to get out of the city & it’s a good leg stretch to fit into a busy weekday schedule. We ride along the scenic Hudson River with rolling hills and a 5-8 minute climb right before the rest stop/turnaround point. The way home is a gradual descent with more rolling hills. There are an incredible amount of Strava segments along the way, but the most common ones include two longer climbs, plenty of short punchy climbs and a few longer “TT” segments. Most of the route contains almost no cars, which is amazing for being in such a busy part of the world!
We like this ride because you can smash through it full gas, or stop and take in nature at it’s finest. Also, you can get a really great picture of the city from the George Washington Bridge, which never gets old! A great ‘add on’ to a visit to NY and a different way to see the city and keep up your cycling activity while travelling.

Hermann – New YorkAfter growing up in Africa and Europe, Hermann has lived in NYC for over 15 years and has done a lot of riding in the NYC/NJ area, as well as other parts of the US. He doesn't class himself as a racer but he does consider himself a strong rider who is very excited to lead the NYC GCR rides and share all that he loves about NYC with the GCR riders from around the world. His work in the software world means a fair bit of travel but in his spare time he likes to learn more/read about cycling, travel & eat good food. He also considers himself a bit of an audiophile who loves to listen to high quality analogue or digital audio sources and tinker with the associated audio gear.
Vasi – New YorkVasi fell in love with cycling in his native Romania, where he was rarely seen without his fixie. But for the past 10 years, NYC has been his home and he has traded his fixie for a road bike. A bond trader by day and an avid follower of Formula 1 racing, Vasi always seeks the adrenaline of a fast paceline. He has been enthusiastically leading training rides and hammerfests for the past two years while learning the ins and outs of the most scenic and challenging routes that NYC has to offer. Whether you are looking to challenge yourself on a steeper hill or share a laugh while you discover NYC’s surroundings, Vasi will help you find your perfect NYC ride.

He likes to laugh and joke or hammer through flats and hills.
