Awooooooo! I have not had time to do much fun riding lately and I miss the full moon werewolves! I’m sure I have missed some great times!
I’m not sure if there will be a full moon ride in November or if we will just piggyback on Peter’s Beer Ride! Always a highlight of the year for me, a really nice ride to an awesome destination.
Posting below on behalf of Peter. Thanks Birdman! Hoping to hit the road with you guys!
Well, its that time of year again when we saddle up our steeds and take a ride up to one of my favorite breweries. Here is the scoop.
Let’s meet up at the clock tower in Denville at 11:45 and plan on starting at noon. http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=4320577
We will enjoy a nice ride through the Rockaway Valley where we might get lucky and see some llamas. We’ll also check out some scenic views of the Butler Reservoir. The destination will be the High Point Brewing Co Inc Brewery (14 miles one way). They will have a tour of the brewery starting at 2pm.… Once there, we will be enjoying a nice selection of Ramstein beer. http://www.ramsteinbeer.com/pages/beers/beers_flagships.html
After we sample and load up with beer(I’m talking about loading up the panniers ;), we’ll cycle back with beautiful views of the Boonton Reservoirs and Pyramid Mountain.
This will be a casual pace and a no drop ride. I will offer some challenges to anybody who wants a workout.
I have yet to find out if there will be food at the brewery. I will update when I get more info.
.You might want to bring some snacks to keep you fueled before then.
I will try to have car support for bringing back growlers and a tired rider or two. If there are any volunteers, please contact me.
This is an open event, so please share it with anybody that might be interested.
If you haven’t already heard, Greystone Psychiatric Hospital will be demolished sometime this month. We’ve done some great rides here in the past so I think we should visit this historic place one last time before it’s gone. Let’s meet up Thursday evening, October 9th, 2014.
This ride will have three different starting places.
Start option 1: Meet me at the Denville clock tower at 6:45pm with kickstands up at 7pm sharp and ride 5 miles to the corner of Franklin Pl and 202, by Arthur’s Tavern in Morris Plains.
Start option 2: Meet lifetime member Stephen at Morristown Green Fountain at 6:45pm with kickstands up at 7pm sharp and ride 3 miles to corner of Franklin Pl and 202, by Arthur’s Tavern.
Start option 3: Meet in front of Arthur’s Tavern at 7:30pm and wait for both groups to show up.
From there, we will ride a 3 mile loop up spooky Central Ave to view the Kirkbridge building. Bring some ghost stories!
Afterwards, we can drown our sorrows at Collins Pub.
For anybody who wants some extra miles and those returning to Denville, we will stop at Rattlesnake Cantina and check out lifetime member Maribyrd playing an open mic.
Looking forward to howling with you all.
PS. This month is also the 4th year for the Full Moon Adventures Bike Ride.
I remember when Dean mentioned the ride to me for the first time and I thought “This is a bad idea, who wants to ride in the dark?” Boy was I wrong. I’ve met some great friends and made many fond memories on this ride. I look forward to many more howling adventures.
I also realize what a nice job the “Dogman” does on this blog. Not only does he come up with some great rides, he also adds an after ride update. If you get a chance, go back and read some of the older posts. They bring back a lot of good memories. Thanks again Dean.
Hey werewolves, join me monday at 8 at Denville clock tower for an outing of undetermined length to who knows where.

Saturday! Lets meet at Hartley Dodge Memorial Building at 50 King St., Madison for a 7:30pm departure. 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 Morristown Green and leaving at 7:00pm if anyone wants to ride together to Madison.
Ride will end in Madison and we’ll decide on a place to grab a bite and pint. Poor herbies? 54 Main?
I will ride back to Morristown after.
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.
