Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Welcome. And of course, you must post a pic of your wheels, if you have one.

Hey and welcome to the forums. This is a fun place to hang out. I happen to live in Trenton NJ and am getting back into cycling after a long layoff and was thinking of doing that ride. Have you ridden it before?, and if so, what is it like? I just got my new roadie and have no problem throwing it onto the train down to Philly for a ride. Hope to see you on the boards and maybe hook up for a ride.

Brian
