Sunday! Lets meet at Hartley Dodge Memorial Building at 50 King St., Madison at 8pm. We will ride around The Great Swamp. This will be mostly road riding, about 20 or more pretty easy miles. I’ll be riding from Denville at 6:45 and Morristown around 7:15 if anyone wants to ride together to Madison.
Lets meet at the Denville Clocktower at 8pm for the Denville Super Wolf Classic redux. We rode this route two years ago and had a blast! Not for the faint of heart!!, . Eat a snack and bring some water. Expect dirt roads, gravel, gravel climbs, road climbs, gravel climbs with ruts, a rough rail trail, mud, wildlife, weird scenery, pinch flats, you name it! You need good lights and good bike handling or its gonna be a long night out! I know you can do it!
Update: Great ride, everyone! Conditions were tremendously spooky. Inky dark night riding. Sorry for dropping a lifetime member in the trails. 2 new memberships awarded.
Here is a link to a video I made using footage from the last ride. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=681r69qKeww This is my first try using the GoPro & doing any video editing. It came out ok. I learned alot. I think the camera got knocked by a branch because half the footage was of the very dark sky. Next time I will try to get some tighter, more interesting, brighter shots.
Wednesday, meet at the fountain on the green. 8pm. Lets see what the Morristown Werewolf Classic route has in store for us.
The band I play with, Eyeswan, is psyched to be playing Bike & Walk Morristown’s Bikes. Bands. Beer
One of our new songs sounds like a killer bike ride, its inspired by Eddy Merckx. The oh so sweet songs from Byrdgrass and lo-fi wallop of Srch Party rounds out the day. Bike & Walk Morristown have made big strides toward improving bicycling & walking in Morristown. The Sidebar has a tremendous beer selection. Hope you can make it!
Denville clock tower 8pm? I think the Splitrock super wolf route may give us some northern views.
Hey you guys, on Sunday April 7 I am hosting a bike tour through Newark Branchbrook Park’s famous cherry trees. Come see the largest collection of cherry trees in the US in full bloom. April 7, 1pm. We’ll be meeting at the Prudential Concert Grove between the lions. If you can look across the lake and see the cathedral, you’re in the right place. The course is about 8 mostly flat leisurely miles long, and we’ll be walking our bikes through cherry groves at the halfway point. It’s easy for beginners and kids.
The park is closed to cars that morning for a 10k run. The roadblocks should be lifted by noon or 12:30. You can park anywhere inside the park along the side of the road. If you get there early and the roadblocks are still up, park in the cathedral parking lot. The closest entrances are on Clifton Avenue and Park Avenue. It’s just off I-280 and only a few blocks from Broad Street Station (NJ Transit). From Penn Station head straight up Raymond Blvd which runs into Nesbitt which dead ends into the corner of the park right next to the I-280 entrance. Piece of cake!
Afterward we’ll head down to the Ironbound (just east of Penn Station) for some food and sangria! I know all the back street spots that are cheap and dee-licious!
There is no fee, so we’re not giving out t-shirts. Wear pink if you want.
