It’s that time of year again. If you haven’t already had your fill of fireworks this year, you must 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 on Thursday, July 16th at 7:45 with kickstands up at 8pm. The planned route
will go through some very nice backroads of the Great Swamp (13 miles one way).
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. 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 :)
Bird is the word.
Update: I just found out there is a 5K race in Morristown on this date. If driving to the meet up, please take note of the road closures and make ample time to adjust for traffic.
I also wanted to mention there is a $10 entrance fee at the carnival.
