July 16th, 2016 Werewolf Ride. Fireworks Edition.

It’s that time of year again. If you haven’t already 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 on Saturday, 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.

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.

    I rode by the Rockaway Boro fireworks field and saw a sign that said “No Back Packs” .

    I wonder if Berkley Heights will follow suit?

      If they give us a hard time, There are many places to hang out with free viewing. When we rode our motorcycles to this event years ago, we would get our saddlebags checked for weapons. They never told us to get rid of our beer.

    Psyched! I’m leaving from home about 6:45, passing through Denville about 7:00 if anyone wants to ride to the start with me.
