    Long Weekend -- Anyone wanna get together for a ride in NY/NJ/PA?

    With the long weekend and what's looking like probable good weather in the east, anyone wanna get together for a ride on Sunday or Monday?

    Off the top of my head, interesting places could be:

    a. The Great Swamp (Basking Ridge area, NJ)
    b. Hunterdon County (western NJ...hills, tow paths and micro-breweries)
    c. Sussex County (Northern NJ....cows and hills and lakes)
    d. Rockland County (Southern NY State...all kinds of fun)
    e. Milford, PA (borders on NJ and NY state so we could ride in all 3 states on 1 ride)

    Any other suggestions? Any interest?

    There's also the Pinelands.

    I'm up for it, I think, but need to check my wife's schedule to see when I'm free.

    I did, actually, have a burley kiddie trailer once. Sold it many moons ago. So solly.

    I've never been to the Great Swamp. Can you toss a somewhat more detailed route suggestion on the table?

    If that means you're driving up I-95, can I mooch a ride? I promise to be on my best behavior.

    That would be a neat trick...since I don't drive

    I was hoping to either mooch, or that we'd be off public transit. I might bother my wife, but would prefer not to.

    cool, right now it sounds like we're shooting for Sunday as most folks have obligations for Memorial Day. Work is a bit hectic today but I'll try and throw together a route shortly.

    There are various NJ Transit stations in the Great Swamp area. I'll have a look at what's around and make sure its running on a Sunday and use that as a starting point.

    I may try to ride early Monday in the western Morris/northern Hunterdon/eastern Warren County area. If anyone is interested is a guided hill tour, I can probably accomodate.

    I've thought of that. There's a local electrician who's converted one into a utility truck. I think Rob is pretty far north of Philly, though.

    I used to live in Morristown and we rode the gilette, Great swamp, Morris Township, Randolph Township area almost every weekend. It's really nice riding area.

    BUT

    Be out of the swamp an hour or two before sunset or you'll be eaten alive by the NJ state bird.

    I'm good after 1:30pm. But don't change for me, I'm sure others would want to ride earlier.

    I can't. Going camping in up state Pa. I'll be riding CX on the Vassago.
    Obeying safety rules is acceptable fun.

    That's not so bad

    How about 30 miles starting at the Madison NJ Transit station at 2pm. We will easily be done and drinking beer before 6 (before we eat lots of bugs)

    I checked the website and it appears the trains should be running on Sunday and Madison is a pretty quick train ride from Newark.

    working on a route now

    I could do Sunday starting early and until maybe 2pm at the latest.....I think i had more spare time when I was employed...

    Fender1, to answer your text from earlier, if riding with these folks doesnt work out I'd be up for riding from here.
    Mmmm, bicycles.

    I prefer emails to private messages - holiday76@gmail.com
