He was telling me earlier today that those guidos are usually visitors and how in the summer they trash the beaches to hell, so yeah...is New Jersey the kid at school that everyone picks on?

This is awesome, glad to see there are others in the area. Im at the UC, JC and Hoboken border. I'll have my bike ready and in action in 2 weeks, and my friend may be moving in with me and he is down to ride.

Maybe we should start a Hudson County FG/SS group on facebook?

Nice to see some other riders in the area. This weekend will be real nice weather wise. What do you guys think? Saturday Sunday?? Hoboken/JC Liberty State park loop and then some beers back in Hoboken?? We could also go into the City and ride. Any suggestions??

Rob..

Was just at that shop myself, picked up some tubes. They said Friday will be the official opening, Mayor will be there and some free giveaways.

Can't make the May 3rd ride though, relatives visiting that weekend. You can catch me nights though, riding up and down the bike path from the Colgate sign to Newport.

Spotted -

Not sure if its anyone on here, but cruising down Palisade ave in Union City aroun 9pm I saw two fg/ss riders. Guy and a girl, one had a white bike, and the girl looked like she was having the time of her life, or like someone just told her the best joke ever.

Are you two on here?

Ahhh, sorry I couldn't make it this past weekend! Won't be able to do anything next weekend either.

How about we do something mid-May? Perhaps we can have a nice long ride and then a picnic or some **** after that (aka beers in a park?).

Sunday, May 3rd - 10am group ride if it doesn't rain. I'll be riding with a cat from another forum, anyone else is welcome to come. Since its the 5bbt, central park will def be congested. But maybe we can check it out anyways.

just got my bike together, i probably need a few days of riding by myself to get used to it, and to also get a front brake still.

Besides, don't you guys drink and party on a saturday night? I doubt I'll be able to function on a bike at 10am.

What about an after work cruise. There are some good wing and beer specials in Hoboken on Tuesday, or even monday there is a place with free wings. I could be ready to ride by 6pm
