Ride starts and ends at Dinosaur Playground on Riverside Dr. at W. 97th St.
This is a fairly traditional C route to Closter with a few little tweaks. Most of Columbus was repaved late 2015, but there's still a very rough section after you cross Durie. Lunch is at a pleasant diner, but it's not large, so if you're bringing a group, call the diner ahead of time and tell them how many and approximately when you'll get there. 202-767-7530. Bike parking in back of the diner against the building or against the ramp.
This is a good cold weather ride: short and easy with good diner food in the middle.
