i dunno, i just saw those dudes doing a skidding competition on youtube, and i recognized the location, because at the time i lived across the street on 2nd street and the hudson river, downtown jersey city. i was probably 200 yards away sleeping while they were doing that. when i lived in jersey city i never saw any fixed bikes, but apparently there were like 50 of them right outside my house at one point.

the place i most liked to ride in jersey city was liberty state park. jersey is awesome.

I love rain.

I ride in Freehold and down at the shore (avon/belmar etc, that whole area) with a bunch of friends. I saw someone I didn't recognize riding fixed yesterday, so I guess there are a few of us out there

it was from a distance, so I couldn't see much. I actually saw two that day, one with unwrapped bars (this one was like on the shore) and another with white tape on em (this one was further from the shore, near a park). either of them yours?

No...I took a quick spin up the Henry Hudson from Rt 537 past Kozloski to Rt 79.
I'm new to the fg/ss world and just started doing some lurking here.

The loop? Please let me hear more...
I live in JC and trekked up the coast toward the GW, alot of contruction along the water with some really nice looking homes, but I stopped a few miles short of getting to the GW because it started raining. Is there a better way to get up there to the GW? I found myself having to ride along with traffic which was a bit of a pain because the drivers don't seem to give a rat's ass if they run you over. I'm pretty much a newb to the fg and JC scene, so any help is much appreciated.

wouldn't mind checking out that route... usually just ride up past hoboken along the waterfront, never been all the way up to GW, road conditions, etc... usually spend my time riding in the city, and laps in CP once in awhile...

Well I say a loop but it's just a road lol, more of a "To avoid a****** fuzz at PATH station) Yes, definitely to avoid the fuzz.
It's just up Hudson/Bergen and into NY and down back to Midtown. It's a nice loop. There's no specific path or course or anything, just go N if you're going North and S if you're going South.

I've taken the path to world trade and gone up the bike path on the west side to the GWB and crossed into Jersey. Then take river road back (although it can get a little hairy) think its like 20 or so miles.

What do you mean by "Hairy" ? lol
I tend to stick with River DR (except for just off the bridge in Fort Lee...you know, that real steep downgrade that goes closer to the Hudson?)...I just go straight through Central Fort LeeIsh. But I don't know what routes I take, I just take whatever goes South, too many street names change and every boro and city has a different Numbering street system (idiotic!). I've never did the loop up through Jersey, I always come from Manhattan way.
