Well grab your shoes, and grab your balls And lets head to those heavenly halls Sit on down and grab a beer Because bowling time is pretty near Tortured men forget their pain When they head to the bowling lane

Let’s go bowling Let’s go bowling, got a

Let’s go bowling, for a free game Let’s go bowling Let’s go bowling, let’s go bowling Let’s do it now

Because wrestlemania’s fine by me Monster trucks are a sight to see A culture like that’s nice and all But there ain’t nothing better than a bowling ball You know the sport that God would choose Is the one with the three-tone leather-sole shoes

Ride recap:

Only 3 of us rode on this chilly night (it didn’t feel that chilly at all)  We had a nice surprise waiting at the bowling alley.  4 more wolves showed up ready to bowl.

Nancy won game 1 with no problem.  After a beer or five, I was ready to show my stuff.  we’ll it was a nail biter but lifetime member bill beat me by 1 pin.  Great game buddy.  After bowling, we hit Poor Henrys for a beer and hung out while the band played some great tunes.  The ride back felt even warmer (could it be the beer?)  Bill led us on some new roads which is always a treat.  Until next time.  Awhoooooo.

December 8th, Werewolf Ride. Holiday Lights Denville/Rockaway Edition.

3 Dec


We had such a great time on the last couple Holiday Lights Rides that we’re doing 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.

We’ll stop at The Exchange just before the end of the ride for a snack and a pint.

Ride Recap:   It was a great night for a ride.  A little chilly but thanks to Dan who helped keep us hydrated.  We took the less hilly version of the ride.  The lights were Awesome!  Here is a link to my facebook video.  

We ended up finishing up at Thatchers.  Great way to finish the ride.  Here are pics.



November 25, 2018 Denville Werewolf Ride

20 Nov

Yo, Wolves! Pedal off some of that delicious gravy this weekend.  We should have the roads to ourselves Sunday night!  Meet at Denville clocktower Sunday 11/25 about 9pm for a hardy adventure into the hills.  I’m thinking about the SuperWolf route but we can decide on the route and destinations as we go.  Hope to see ya!

Let’s do it again! Twin Elephant Bike Ride. November 17th, 2018.

12 Nov

We had such a great time at the Bicycle/Beer ride that I decided to do another one this Saturday night.   Meet at the Morristown Green Fountain at 5:00.

Let’s ride to the Twin Elephant Brewery.  The brewery does not serve food so I recommend bringing your own. There are also menus of local eateries  that deliver.

On the way back to Morristown, we’ll take the road less traveled (or bike path)

After ride, we can hit the one of the local bars for a bite and more beer.  Office, Revolution, Hops?  We’ll let the wolves vote on it.

The Birdman.


Ride Recap:  Four of us saddled up our steeds and tackled the snow lined roads on the chilly night.  The traction line is always a nice and quiet way of getting out of Motown.  We met lifetime members Douglas and Irene at the brewery and had a few pints together while having some great conversation.  Jared took some great pics and vids too.  The ride back was much warmer (or at least felt that way after some fantastic brews.)  Loantaka paths were a challenge with some snow on the trails but we were able to handle them without too much trouble.  We decided to hit The Office for food and more beer.  Great time as always.

November 10th, 2018. Bicycle/Beer Ride.

2 Nov

This year will be the 8th 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.


Werewolf Weird New Jersey Bike Ride. Montville Glowing Grave Edition. October 27th, 2018.

1 Oct

This months ride will have a Weird New Jersey theme to it.  We’ll take a ride to Montville’s glowing grave.

Let’s meet up at the Denville clock tower at 5:15 with kickstands up at 5:30.

The route will take us through pretty Mountain Lakes which has many beautiful homes.  One of these homes made it the pages of WNJ that is worth taking a look.  Bring your camera!

The plan is to make it to the house before it gets dark and to the grave when it’s dark.

After visiting the grave, we’ll grab some food and drinks at Poor Henrys Pub which has delicious food and one of the best selections of craft beer out there.

We’ll have a chance to burn off some of those calories on the way back to Denville. There will be a few short climbs to get our blood flowing.

Ride stats:  This ride will be approx. 20 miles.  A few hills but mostly rolling

This is a no drop ride with many stops.

Bring lights and your sense of adventure.
