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.

July 16th, 2018 Werewolf Ride. Fireworks Edition.

8 Jul

It’s that time of year again. If you haven’t  had your fill of fireworks this year, you should join me for a ride to see the best!

We will be taking a bike ride to the Berkeley Heights Firework. Let’s meet up at the Morristown Green fountain on Monday , July 16th at 7:45 with kickstands up at 8pm.  The planned route will go through some very nice back roads of the Great Swamp (13 miles one way).

On arrival, we will WALK OUR BIKES together as a group and pay the admission together at the main entry gate.  $15/person.

We will arrive at approximately 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 even 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.  Expect to finish at the Green around 1:30am.

I’m not promoting this, but when we return to the Green, some of the wild wolves have been known 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.

Note:  This is also a BikeWalkTown event.  As usual, all rules of the road must be followed.

Bring lights and let’s ride safely.   Renegade cycling is frowned upon!

 

Bird is the word.

Hey, Gang.  Lets meet at Denville Clocktower about 8:30pm for a ride.  Perhaps we will do the SuperWolf in reverse and check out the overlook.  There are fireworks in Montville we may be able to peep from up there.

Hope to see ya!

…Dogman & J-Rad killed the SuperWolf Classic counter clockwise in 3 hours flat.  Riding at night always feels fast and we really pushed the pace and did the loop along with a hike a bike up to Hawkwatch to catch some fireworks and the red moonrise:

May 27, 2018 – Three Native American Rock Shelters ride/hike

21 May

Let meet up 5/27 at 8pm in Grace Lord Park near the gazebo in Boonton. We usually blast through this park on bikes, this time lets hike it in the daylight and get up close & personal with shelter #1 Washington Rock (aka Indian Rock), its HUGE!

Next stop is in Parsippany at Rock House, shelter #2. I’ve never been here, looks like a short hike from the road.  Think we can find the petroglyphs?

Last stop is probably the most hidden and tough to find any info on, I was clued into this one by another lifetime member….   #3 Roc Etam in Denville

Wear walking shoes & a bring a flashlight, maybe some bug spray.   Bike lights are a must.  It’s about a 25 mile loop.  I will loop back to Boonton, but you may want to treat this as a point to point ride if it is more convenient for you.

Hope to see ya!
