June 1, 2013 – 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM

National Learn to Row Day at the Haverstraw Ferry Landing at Dr. Girling Drive, Haverstraw, NY.

Each year, the North Rockland Rowing Club hosts Learn to Row Day to expose more New Yorkers and Rocklanders to the sport of rowing or crew. Refine your technique on a rowing machine and/or get in a boat to learn the basics. The Club will take you out on the Hudson River to experience rowing firsthand! Don’t worry, they take numerous safety precautions when introducing beginners to the sport. This is a great event for families and children, as well as adults that are looking for new ways to stay fit.

NRRC - Join Now! Spring 2013

NRRC – Join Now! Spring 2013

On May 20, 2012, over 5,000 cyclists will descend upon the Village of Haverstraw (right through Downtown) as they make their way from New York City to the top of Perkins Memorial Drive on Bear Mountain. The Gran Fondo is a 110-mile (177 km) endurance race fashioned after similar cycling events in Italy. Cyclists will climb over 8,500 vertical feet over the George Washington Bridge, the Palisades Escarpment, along the Hudson River, and finally to the top of Bear Mountain in the Highlands. A ‘Medio Fondo’ is offered to cyclists that choose to be non-competitive. See the Gran Fondo cycling route here: http://www.granfondony.com/course.php Riders/cyclists will be moving through the area between 8:00 AM and 11:00 AM on Sunday, May 20, 2012. The best place to view the Gran Fondo is from New Main Street and Broadway.

Below, practicing cyclists choose the Bella Rose Cafe on New Main Street to refuel and relax. Image courtesy of Haverstraw resident Andrea Caccuro.
