This ain't some hardcore long distance ride. This is just a few minutes from my house. But I wanted to post it here cause it's just a very cool town with a lot of good spots & a lot of cool people, and it's on an awesomely good road for sightseeing and pure riding bliss.
This is Callicoon, New York.
Sidetracks Bar....with a bunch of weekend warriors leaving.
The Western Hotel. The owner Joe is a good friend of mine. The place is an old-timey bar & hotel, and their liquor store has the best prices within 50 miles. P.S.- The restored '57 T'bird is for sale....PM me
Matthew's On Main, my fave place. They got good food, good people, and the prettiest bartenders in 3 counties. The ugliest bike would be mine....Cap'n Krunch.
Inside, the pretty blond hiding behind the bar is (sweet incredible) Sarah!!!
The dining room @ Mathhew's. (It was hot as a mofo, but they came & they conquered)
The Dinner menu changes weekly
The Delaware River just upstream from Callicoon. Lander's River Trips has canoes, tubes and rafts available for river runs.
The 1906 Restaurant, one of several excellent places to eat in Callicoon
Klimchok Real Estate......I just had to give them a bump, I'm their computer geek and they take good care of me.
Random sign on the kitchen door @ Matthew's
Grilled chicken filets with herbs & salad.....smelled so good I had to take a picture.
Beautiful bartender Julia. She's from Belarus, and has a very cool accent that's a mix of Slavic and BBC British. Oh and she's such a sweetheart it kills me.....cause she's married :(
View of the bridge next to Lander's River Cafe. That's PA over there, anybody got a rock to throw?
Lander's River Cafe. One of several fine resaurants in Callicoon.
Cap'n Krunch with my handicapped parking permit on the bars LOL
Skinners Falls. Just downstream from Callicoon. Popular spot for sunbathing & tubing the rapids. You can bring beer to the rocks, but no glass bottles allowed. And there's a campground within walking distance.
This is "Hawk's Nest," a stretch of Rt. 97 south of Callicoon about 7 miles. You may recognize it, cause it has been on innumerable car commercials. It's VERY fun to ride
Well there you have it, my first ride report. I hope you all enjoy it, and hope to see some inmates up this way at Matthew's. Keep the rubber side down, shiny side up
