    Conshohocken-Lambertville

    Hey guys,

    I am planning a weekend ride to my parents house, and I saw the ACA has a route that goes right to my home town. Unfortunately, the map I ordered wont be here in time for the trip. Does anyone know the route that the ACA (Section 2) follows from Conshohocken to Lambertville? Maybe a quick image just to give me an idea?

    I proposed the route for that section to ACA when they were redoing their Atlantic Coast Route. The route they had been using was a bit dated thanks to suburban sprawl. If I find the time tonight (I am starting a tour tomorrow from Port Jervis, NY to Philly via L'Ville) I will draw you a quick map or try to provide you with an alternative route that I have used when taking tours to Bull's Island.

    Where exactly do you live in case I want to give you an alternative route?

    Well that didn't take long. This is the ACA route north from the Spring Mill train station on the Schuylkill River Trail.

    CONSHY-L'VILLE at Bikely.com

    If you are riding back on Sunday and see someone on a black LHT with red Ortlieb panniers, say "Hello." I will be camping in Upper Black Eddy Saturday night and riding home to Philly on Sunday, although I will probably take a detour at Ambler (Behtlehem Pike to W. Mill to Stenton to Northwestern) so I can end up riding down Forbidden Drive and then the path and MLK to the Art Museum, which is a few blocks from my house.

    Thanks for the offer, but I will be stopping in UBE. It's becoming a tradition. The owner is a nice guy who gives me a cyclist deal. I will say that I miss the campground at Bull's Island. I used to take at least one long weekend tour up there every year. Too bad they had to close it. The state is supposed to be developing a new place up river towards Frenchtown, but that will take many more years.
