Micro-Tour 3 (July 8/8, 2017) saw a series of firsts...first child making the ride, first Micro-Tour with multiple routes, and first recumbent rider.

The 2017 Micro-Tour 3 was 2 rides. Group one (43 riders) rode 62 miles from

718 Cyclery

(meeting a few people along the way) to

Mountain Lakes Park

in North Salem NY. Group 2 took the Metro North Harlem Line train to Pleasantville and rode 21 miles to camp. Both groups linked up 7 miles from camp to load up on supplies and ride to camp together.

Micro-Tour 3 was a special trip...made even more fun by the shear numbers of riders who participated and had a great time.
