Getting to Supercross Cup 2016

Supercross Cup 2016, part of the Vittoria Northeast Cyclocross Series, is at a new venue this year at Rockland Community College in Suffern, NY.! The street address of reference is 145 College Road, Suffern, NY 10901.

 

If you’re a racer, you take the train to Suffern, and ride to the course.

If you’re a fan, ride to the course, enjoy the day at the races, then ride to Suffern and take the train home.

And if you don’t have bike access, are a pro spectator, or are coming from far, far away, the Supercross Cup Venue is close to Route 287, with easy access from the George Washington Bridge, the Tappan Zee Bridge and the New York State Thruway. 


Those who want to ride from New York City.

The race venue is about 28 miles northwest from the George Washington Bridge.

Googlemaps provides two options.  The route that takes you to East Saddle River Road is the easiest to follow—it’s even easier if you skip getting on the bike path in Paramus.  The route that takes you to Knickerbocker Road is more scenic, less traveled by cars, but gets more complicated once you get to Nanuet.
