I’m moving to NYC in December and seriously wondering whether to take my full susser (Orange Blood funbike), or sell or store it.
We’ll be living in Brooklyn, so I’m wondering whether any of you have experiencing of getting out of the city and doing good quality riding in NY state, and if so where/how, how long did it take to get there, and how good was the riding?!
We visited Whiteface Mountain in upstate NY. Ski lifts open to bikes during the summer.
Make sure you pay a visit to Roy’s Cycles on Sheepshead Avenue. I remember going in there when visiting my bro-in-law (who lived in Brooklyn at the time). Must have been early 90’s(!). All I can remember is walking in and staring at the ceiling at all the Yeti ARC’s hanging there…………!
Bound to be some XC riding on Long Island. Likewise upstate. I lived there a long time before I got into mountain biking but I did lots of skiing in NY state and Vermont – all 3-5 hours drive from Manhatten – you get used to the distances we used to drive 3 hrs to ski for the day or 5 hours for weekend. You need a car but you can rent or hook up with locals. IMO it would be worth taking your bike (assuming its suitable) so you can ride it on trips “out west”
