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 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)

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.
