DUZER NEW YORK ADVENTURE
Treat yourself to an authentic Duzer adventure! On Friday (10/20) the group ride will be moderate, on mixed-surface paths, with some climbing. The final route will be determined the days leading up to the ride, based on weather and road conditions. Expect a 50-60 mile first day at a group-friendly pace.
The ride cost is $50 and limited to 15 riders. This includes campsite, Friday night dinner and drinks, Saturday morning breakfast and coffee, and gear transit to/from the campsite. If cost is a concern for your participation, please email us at: email@example.com
We'll have a couple stops along the way, ending up near Peekskill, NY. Dinner is on us before we head to our overnight campground.
There's no need to pack your gear on this trip. Our Priority team will bring your tent, clothing, and anything else up to the campsite for you. We ask only one medium duffel per person.
On Saturday (10/21) we'll grab breakfast in Peekskill before rolling back on an alternate route for another 50-60 miles. The complete round-trip will be 100-120 miles total. Expect to be back in NYC mid/late-afternoon on Saturday.
Please note - helmets are mandatory. This is a casual, social pace ride. No riders will be left behind and we'll find pace groups based on ability, comfort, and road safety.
Water/food will be available in spots, but limited on the bike path, so please pack hydration and nutrition.
Meet-up @ Priority Bicycles // 7:00AM
(water & bathrooms available). Car parking will be self-serve in local lots, or you can ride on up!
Roll out @ 8:00AM
GET OUT THERE
I'm a YouTuber and motivational speaker always in search of a good story. My adventurous content is aimed at inspiring people to get off their couches. In the past, I've produced and hosted content for Travel Channel, National Geographic, Men's Journal, CurrentTV, Lonely Planet, Viator, Backpacker Magazine, and Skiing Magazine.
I've never owned a car, bikes are the way!
When I don't have a video camera in my hand, I can be found speaking to high school students about chasing their dreams and living healthy lives.
My main goal with everything I do is to inspire people through educational, inspiring, and engaging content.
You have questions. We have answers. More to come, as well!
What is the route?
Please see below for Day 1 and Day 2 routes. They are intermediate-to-advanced level ride incorporating some elevation and mixed surfaces between shared roads, dedicated paved bike paths, and gravel. There may be some limited hike-a-bike sections, but we we don't anticipate it being overly technical.
This is an unsupported ride, however, in an emergency, we will have team members ready to help.
The ride is in the spirit of a Duzer Adventure, so we will take what the road throws our way in a safe manner. No riders will be left behind!
What is the itinerary?
Saturday morning (10/21)
Your bags will be waiting for you at Priority for pickup.
What should I bring?
Each rider can bring one (1) duffel bag that will be brought up to the camp ground. We recommend:
Optional items for your comfort include:
Clothing should be determined by weather. Weather permitting we will plan on hanging out around a campfire Friday night, but given that we will have roughly 25 people, the modest fire will not be enough to keep everyone warm.
Please plan accordingly and watch the weather. As of now, Friday evening is set to have light showers with more pronounced intermittent rain on Saturday.
Our team will transport all bags to the campsite—so you don't need to, nor should you plan to, pack all your gear on your bike. This will help keep the group together. The campsite doesn't have a formal outhouse or shower, however, we will bring drinking water, sanitizer wipes, body wipes, and "bathroom" supplies.
There will be stops along the way to fill your bottles, we'll have water (and other beverages) at the campsite, and you'll be able to re-fill at dinner.
Do I have to bring a tent or can I sleep under the stars or in a hammock?
Make sure to check the weather! Right now we are anticipating some light rain Friday evening and showers on Saturday. Sleeping under the stars is OK and single backpacking/ bikepacking hammocks are fine at the campsite. You'll need to scout a tree that works. Please know that we are only allowed one vehicle on-site and it may not be able to get all the way to the campsite (.25 miles from the turn-off from the main road), so there won't be support for inclement weather.
Can people drive and/or meet up?
The campsite will be full with our riders and support team. Also, there isn't parking nearby so we don't have space for additional attendees to meet up.
Where do we start the ride and where do I park?
We'll start at Priority Bicycles located at 174 Hudson Street, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10013.
We don't have parking in our building. There is limited street parking and there are paid garages nearby. We recommend using the app SpotHero to pre-book your parking spot. It's the most affordable option. An above-ground lot is best if you have a larger vehicle. We're also near the PATH and Subway should you choose to park elsewhere and ride to Priority HQ.
Is there a hotel near Priority HQ?
Should you require a hotel for Thursday night, we don’t have a NYC hotel partner we can put you in touch with for a discounted rate. Your best bet is to use Kayak, TripAdvisor, Orbitz, or a similar travel site to find the best deal. For your planning purposes, our address is 174 Hudson Street, New York, NY 10013.
