160 Miles This Weekend & Nothing to Show For It
Took a really nice, fully-loaded tour from just outside Port Jervis, NY to my home in Philly. Spent the first night along side the river in Worthington State Forest (NJ), where I had to store food in a bear box. Did a day ride past there last year and we just missed seeing a bear cross the road. Second day I crossed the pedestrian walkway along I-80 and rode down the PA side of the Delaware River and crossed back into NJ at Belvidere. Continued down the NJ side to Milford, where I again crossed back into PA to reach a campground. Back into NJ at Frenchtown, down the trail, back into PA at New Hope and then home.
I had started out taking lots of photos to share, but after taking a shot from the bridge leading to Belvidere, the camera slipped from my cold, sweaty hand, hit the walkway railing and now sleeps with the fishes at the bottom of the Delaware.
Anyway...It's a pretty and challenging route long stretches with little traffic. The first day was particularly hard. Bikely shows over 4,000' of climbing in 39 miles. I believe it. If you live in the area and want more details, send me a PM.
