I’m leading a ride this Sunday to the Stirling Hotel.
Join me for a 30 mile round trip, social ride through the Great
Swamp. The destination will be the Stirling Hotel
for a late lunch.
This ride will leave from the Morristown
farmers market at 41 Morris Street, Morristown at 1:00 pm.
Before the ride, some of the BikeWalkMorristown crew and myself will be doing the yoga class offered by Be Well for Grow it Green Morristown which starts at 11:30.
All are welcome.
Bricka bracka firecracka sis boom bah! Bicycle Riding! Bicycle Riding! Rah Rah Rah!
It’s that time of year again. If you have not had your fill of fireworks this year, you shouldn’t miss the best!
We will be taking a bike ride to the Berkely Heights Fireworks.
Let’s meet up at the Morristown Green on Wednesday July 16th at 7:45 and kickstands up at 8. The planned route
will be through some very nice back roads of the Great Swamp (13 miles).
This will be a late night. We will arrive at aprox 9pm which gives us plenty of time to chow down on some greasy carnival food, visit the beer tent for a pint or two, and for the adventurous, take a ride on the tilt-a-whirl.
Fireworks start at 11pm and last almost an hour.
On the ride back, we will have the Swamp roads all to ourselves.
I’m not promoting this but when we return to the Green, some of the wild wolves have been know to take a dip in the fountain to cool off.
Even though it’s Summer, I think this is the coolest ride of the year, so don’t miss it :)
Bird is the word.
I’ve been away for the last few full moon rides while on my Pacific Coast bike tour and don’t feel like waiting around until the next one to ride. Join me for a New Moon ride this Saturday night. (New Moon is actually Friday but it falls on the Morristown monthly ride and afterparty.)
Let’s meet up at the Denville clock tower at 7 pm with kickstands up at 7:15.
Just a short ride around town to catch up on some much needed bike talk and of course an after ride pint at one of the local pubs.
Tonight was a short easy spin that took us wild and crazy wolves to the four corners. Instead of the usual llamas we usually see, we witnessed a turtle crossing the road which we guided to saftey. We also visited one of our own wolves new cave. We finished up this short ride talking bike over beers and appetizers at the Second Half. Good times.
If you think tonight was a good time, just wait until the next full moon ride. You don’t want to miss it! Details coming up soon.
Some pics from tonights ride.

Excuse the late notice. Meet up at Denville clock tower tonight at 8:30pm if you want to join me for a ride. As a birthday gift to myself, I plan on heading up to Splitrock Rd to bomb some dirt roads and rail trails.
Pack your things! How about a 5:45pm meet up in Denville and we’ll wind our way toward Mahlon Dickerson Reservation. I’m guessing its a 15 mile ride. Camp in an Adirondack shelter, under the stars or in a tent. I’d like to head home by 8am. Lets get a head count so I know what to book. Psyched!
Another great time was had on the Full Moon camp out jamboree. We made the trip without our fearless lead wolf, who was greatly missed.
It started out on a high note when the owner of the tanning salon noticed my touring bike at the clock tower and asked if I was riding cross country. She was willing to offer me a place to stay. Her son had done the trip and said that people have been so kind to him that she wanted to help out another cyclist. That really made me smile. There are still good people out there.
We had 5 riders and one car support. Riding weather was perfect. I think the climb up Minisink kept everybody warm. We arrived at camp just after dark. Set up camp and had a fire going in no time. We enjoyed some Polish Kielbasa cooked on the fire. Thanks to another wolf for bringing up 2 wheel barrel loads of wood. We enjoyed the warm while it lasted. It did get chilly at night and a fellow wolf departed early when the fire ran out. When we awoke, we enjoyed some coffee with Prince Polo bars (another Polish treat from the butcher shop), then cleaned up camp and had another perfect day for cycling back home. One wolf noticed that his tent fell off his bike and started to return to look for it. I’ve never seen him cycle so fast. We didn’t go far. A guy in a truck was stopped and asked if we were missing something, and then handed over the tent. There are those good people again.
All in all, it was a great overnighter. I’m sure we will be doing another on in the warmer weather.
Keeping it rubberside down. The Birdman.
Hey Wolves! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been feeling more like a hibernating bear than a wolf this Winter. Let’s meet up at the Denville clock tower for a 7pm departure. How does taking a ride up to Boonton sound? If we’re feeling up to it, we can take an optional hill climb up to the Sheep Hill Observatory.
After the climb, we’ll enjoy the downhill ride to Boonton ave and take a break at Poor Henry’s pub for a well deserved cold beverage. They have a nice selection of craft beers on tap.
We’ll head back to Denville via pretty Mountain Lakes. Ride route will be aprox 14 miles.
