December 16th, Werewolf Ride. Holiday Lights Denville/Rockaway Edition.

11 Dec

We had such a good time on last years Holiday Lights Ride, I want to do it again.

Join me for a 12 mile ride that will feature the famous holiday lights of “The Rockaway House”.

The mind-boggling lights display at “that house in Rockaway” has a special touch—a desk in the front yard where kids can write their very own letters to Santa. And, while they’re there, they can watch their wishes travel to Santa’s sleigh up on the rooftop.

Meet up this Saturday at the Denville clock tower at 4:45pm with kickstands up at 5:00pm sharp.

Ride Stats:

Distance is 12 miles.

No drop ride.

Terrain:    Paved roads.  Some gentle hills in the Rockaway area.

Bring headlights and rear lights for your bike.  Holidays bike lights are optional.

After ride food and drinks at Thatcher McGhee’s.

Birdman.

Ride Recap:

Another amazing full moon ride!  Four of us ventured out on a chilly Sunday night.  It seemed like we had the roads to ourselves.  We had some really nice views of the super moon all along the ride.  We stopped often and exchanged stories with each other.  The Glynallyn castle was a neet place to stop.  We tried to capture some pictures but they never do it justice.  You really have to be there.  Finishing up at Revolution with great food and beers and most important, great company.  Thanks for the ride.    Awhoooooo!

🎃🚲🎃🚲🎃🚲🎃🚲🎃🚲🎃🚲🎃🚲🎃🚲🎃🚲🎃🚲🎃🚲

LAST CHANCE to ride in our end of month rides and it’s a doozy! A Very Spoke-y Halloween ride and it’ll be nice and dark so we can all show off our bike lights as well as our costumes. As is tradition from the last couple years, we’ll stop at the graveyard in back of the Presbyterian Church on the Green and do a nice little reading of ‘The Raven’ (or something new if anyone wants to suggest something spooky). So come! and bring friends! and kids! and dogs if they’ll stay in your bike basket! Friday, October 27th at 6:30–Meet at Whole Foods.

November 11th, 2017. Bicycle/Beer Ride.

22 Oct

This year will be the 7th year of the Bicycle/Beer Ride.

Let’s meet up at the Denville clock towerat noon and plan on starting at 12:15pm sharp.

Our route will take us through the Rockaway Valley where we might get lucky and see some llamas.  Fayson lakes is also a nice treat with beautiful views of fall foliage reflecting off the Butler reservoir..

The destination will be the High Point Brewery (14 miles one way). We’ll enjoy samples of their seasonal Winter Wheat beer. Brewery opens at 2 and there will be a tour starting at 3pm.

After we sample and then load up with beer (I’m talking about loading up the panniers ;), we’ll cycle back with more 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. They do not sell food but in the past there have been food vendors. Also, there is a main street in town where you can most likely find something to munch on.

Maybe bring some snacks to keep you fueled.

This is an open event, so please share it with anybody that might be interested.

Bring lights and let’s ride!

PETE’S “SHORE THING” BIKE RIDE. SATURDAY OCTOBER 7TH, 2017.

20 Sep

Join me for a 40 mile ride down the Jersey Shore.  This ride will start with The Henry Hudson Bike Trail.  This will offer us many miles with nice views of the Sandy Hook Bay, ocean, Verrazano Bridge and New York skyline.

Once at Sandy Hook, we’ll cycle the bike path all the way to the end of this peninsula.   Bring a camera!  If it’s not too cold, bring a bathing suit if you want to go for a quick dip.

On our way back, we’ll stop at Carton Brewery for a pint of their amazing beer.  There will also be food options in this area.

Meet up in the parking lot at Oakshades Park located at  30 Gerard Ave, Aberdeen Township, NJ 07747.  Parking lot is located at the corner of Gerard Ave and Broadway.

9:45 meet up with kickstands up at 10:00 am sharp.  I will be driving to the location with 2 wolves.  If anybody else wants to carpool, reach out to me.  I plan on leaving Morristown area 8:30.

 

Ride Stats:

Distance is 40 miles.

No drop ride.  I would like to average 13 mph.

Terrain:    Mostly flat with a few hills in the Highlands area.

Heavy rain cancels ride.

Ride Recap:

Now that was a fun ride.  The path was great except for the many stop signs at road crossings.  Thankfully most drivers yielded to us.  We were detoured up the hills of the Highlands because the path was having work done.  It was a tough battle but well worth it.  The views were amazing.  The wind picked up a bit at Sandy Hook but it actually felt good since it was as warm as a Summers day.  The ride back was much easier since we figured out how to avoid the hills on the path.  Carton beer hit the spot.   It was a long day and I loved every minute of it.  Here are some pics.
