    Unlike the LIRR, neither NJ Transit nor SEPTA requires a pass.
  2. visited Philadelphia via NJ Transit and SEPTA

    I am back after three days of fun in Philadelphia. I took the NJ Transit / SEPTA combination, which worked out wonderfully. And it's amazing how little this cost: only $19 each way. On top of that, I...

    If I am going a long way, I suppose that I choose through roads, which tend to be bigger streets. Such is the case with Essex St. / Market St.

    But when I am exploring within a city, I try to hit...

    I did see the falls! I passed by the museum; but I didn't go in. I listened to parts of the walking tour, narrated by none other than Brian Williams. You can hear it by calling 973-582-0654. The...

    (You mean Route 119.)

    It was my intention to take the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail down from Elmsford. But when I got to its beginning at Sheldon Ave., I saw that it was grass. So that made me give...

    Ah. Well, sorry for my part in that. It's just that keeping track of the amount of miles is a huge part of my motivation. Admittedly, this motivation is more important in the winter, when my will...

    It was a great week for me, also. I did 264 miles, which is my fourth highest total ever. Well, it's the fourth highest since I started keeping records three years ago. But that's only a year...

    Following up on that, I will say that Paterson is a great place to ride, despite the lack of formal bike lanes. I really enjoyed being there, as opposed to the neighbouring areas of Elmwood Park...

    I have been on JFK Blvd. East a few times, taking it only southward. It's pretty good in spots, though it gets a little nutty in Weehawken. I generally use Bergenline Ave. going south through...

    I rode in the streets. And I went to Hoboken after I went to Liberty State Park. Coming down from the bridge, I had bypassed Hoboken, having entered Jersey City from Union City on Summit Ave. But,...

    It was a bad choice to go to a department store for a bike; and it's always a bad choice to go to Walmart for anything.

    If you can return the bike, then I will strongly recommend going instead to...
  12. the cities of Hudson County are great

    I took advantage of the beautiful weather on Tuesday to make my first ride of the year through New Jersey. (I had gone over the George Washington Bridge once a few weeks ago; but that time I just...

    The Queens streets are much nicer on weekday afternoons than on weekends. I think that a weekday afternoon is the best time to ride in Queens.

    You don't say where you are starting from; but let's...

    Oh, I misunderstood! So Steve was right: it was the Jersey City-to-Newark (via Kearny) part that you were upset about. That bit is not what I would call comfortable; but I have had no special...

    I think that Punkinevil is talking about it being dangerous once one arrives in Newark; he is not referring to getting from Jersey City to Newark. It is the route from Doremus Ave. along Raymond...
  16. Wow, that really stinks. A look at the map...

    Yes, the bike/pedestrian lane across this bridge (the Victory Bridge) was closed fall of 2014 due to a number of suicides. I am unable to find information on whether it has been reopened.[/QUOTE]

    Wow, congratulations on going from New York to Philly! I did that last year, riding there and back. They were amongst my longest rides ever (116 miles going; 119 miles coming back); and the whole...

    I am probably going to be out there this coming Sunday. I don't know if I can muster up the nerve to try the Raymond Blvd. route; I think I'll probably go down Doremus to Roanoke Ave.

    One thing...

    Oops! Yes, I suppose it was the bit about coming within an eyelash of a bus that kind of made me think that you might be yanking my chain. Sorry for misinterpreting.

    Anyway, I also like mixing...

    Oh, of course. I should have known. I have a Photobucket account; maybe I'll use it the next time I want to post a picture.

    Thanks for the answer.

    Sorry to ask this again, but how do you get a full-sized graphic into a post? The graphics that Kaos Joe and I attached came out as thumbnails.

    I am not entirely sure that you are being sincere. But, to reply to your words at face value, I will say that for me it is definitely both. The fitness effects of daily riding have turned my life...

    New York's streets may be busy; but they certainly aren't pothole-infested!

    Well, there is one street that I take through Brooklyn on my way to work that is a truck route; and that one gets kind...

    Mostly within New York City. I love riding in Manhattan and the Bronx; and I live on the Brooklyn/Queens border, so I can accumulate plenty of miles just by touring those spacious boroughs.
