Welcome

The Roe Jan Ramble Bike Tour is returning for its 7th year on Saturday, September 21. This free event is sponsored by the towns of Hillsdale, Copake, and Ancram and takes riders through some of the most scenic roads in the three towns.

This year, there will be 6 different routes to choose from, from a family-friendly 10-mile route to a 62.5-mile route for more experienced cyclists. Riders can go at their own pace on well-marked quiet country roads and portions of the Harlem Valley Rail Trail. The rides begin and end in Copake Memorial Park.
