[QUOTE=neilfein;8901974]Yeah, there's not a practical way to route around Holmdel Road if I want to go through that area. The hill near the end includes getting across route 18. I can route up the Old Bridge Turnpike and avoid some of it, but I remember that not being a particularly nice ride. (We ended up on the sidewalk of Route 18 for a few blocks.) [/HTML]
I gather she's comfortable riding in traffic? And NJ traffic at that?
I should hope so, since she's smaller than me. Still, the older Nav hardly climbed well, and the newer models are even more crank-forward. Tell her to spin, spin, spin when she comes to rises.
Yes, you recall correctly. Hers is a smaller frame than yours, of course.
The one on the second day looks short enough to walk if need be. The one on the first day on Holmdel is the one I'd worry about. Where in Red Bank are you starting from? The hotel we stayed at?
I figure that one big hill each day should be fine, especially considering we'll be warmed up by that point.
