    Anyone want to ride in the NJ Pinelands this Saturday, January 28?

    I'm going to ride a century this Saturday, leaving my house at 7:15 AM. I'm planning on meeting a couple forum members at the train station at Trenton around 7:45 AM, and a couple more at a diner near Wrightstown around 9 AM. It should be a nice day with temperatures starting in the 30's and getting up into the 40's.

    The loop from the Trenton Transit Center back to there will be about 90 miles; the loop from the diner parking lot back to there will be a metric century. Near the end of that metric loop there's a BBQ restaurant.

    In case my wife is reading this, of course I wouldn't dream of stopping at the BBQ joint, being a vegetarian.

    Riders from the NYC area can get to Trenton by NJTransit; riders from Philadelphia can get there by SEPTA.

    Anyway, the point is: Anyone interested should send me a private message!

    I wish I could go. But I guarantee that all who do go will have a wonderful time.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    I wish I could go too, but the ride on Septa from here to there alone will tire me out! LOL! Seriously though, I couldn't do a century unless I trained for a century! LOL! Have a great time rhm, and please do partake of the flesh at the end of the ride! :0)
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    This would be an opportune weekend for a ride since my better half is away. With that said, it's a LONG drive from here to there and I've got a commitment for Saturday to do some computer consulting.That has me thinking though... I need to get over that direction anyway for a special delivery and maybe can re-arrange my weekend a little bit. Let me think this over some more.
