A short stop for a view

along the Hudson


  River Road, Twombly Landing & "Stone Building"  

   

Easy biking along River Road

Rose takes a break at Twombly Landing

Eric & Sebastien have

a little fun with water

   

Suzen reaches the top of the "steep climb" to the real "Stone Building" - success!

Jo-Anne gets a push up the hill.  Or - is that Eric forcing  Jo-Anne to drag him uphill?

Jackie reaches the top

 

Rest stop

Eric entertains the tired bikers

  Piermont, NY - 4pm Lunch  

   

Katy and Eric

Everyone wants to blame them for the tough ride yet all continued to follow them to Piermont for a late lunch

We made a new friend along the way.  His name is Brian.

Jo-Anne, Luna & Suzen

sighed with relief - after they realized their torture is over.

$5 buys a comfortable bus ride back to NYC.

 

We trusted the locals and visitors to not run off with our unlocked bikes

Hungry patrons waited impatiently for their food
