November 16th, 2019 Werewolf Ride

12 Nov

Hey Wolves!  This Saturday night, let’s ride an old favorite.   The Morristown Classic!   We’ll be stopping often to rest up after some of the hills, so bring plenty of drinks and snacks.

Meet at the Morristown Green Fountain at 6:15 pm with kickstands up at 6:30.

Awhooooooo!,

Ride Recap:  4 wolves braved the chilly temps for another fun adventure.  We love howling as we ride up Western.   Stopped at the chapel of the dead nun for a breather.   Hanging out on Sugarloaf and scoffing down some awesome Tito’s Burritios empanadas really hit the spot.  Sitting too long was bad since it was cold.  My hands were numb and hurting.  Patriots path always makes me smile.  Nobody out there but us wolves.  Finished up at Hops for a few more beers to celebrate another howling adventure.  Thanks wolves.  Here are some pics.

November 9th, 2019. Bicycle/Beer Ride.

27 Oct

This year will be the 9th 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.

Ride Recap:  Always a good time at the B/B ride.   Thanks to everyone who came out.  Pics here.

Because the hook brings you back

Hey Gang,

It looks like the weather will be much cooler this weekend and perfect for a day ride.  Let’s meet at the Far Hills railroad station (free parking on weekends)  Sunday morning at 10:00 am sharp and ride a 30 mile loop.  It’s been many moons since I’ve done this ride.  Looking forward to sharing with the wolves.

Ride Recap:  Perfect riding conditions for the amazing ride.  There was roadside yoga poses (I have pics to prove it)   Then the quiet back roads that made you forget you were in NJ.  The big sawmill water wheel was a site to see.  We rode for over 5 hours!  We finished off with a pie of pizza at the local shop.  Great ride and look forward to the next one.    Heres the link to my facebook pics.
