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.


Twin Elephant Bike Ride. May 12th, 2018.

1 May

If there’s an elephant in the room, it’s because I brought one. If there are 2 elephants in the room, it’s because you’re at the Twin Elephant Brewery.
I don’t always drink beer, but when I do I…. Who am I kidding? I’m always drinking beer. Anytime, anywhere, any brand, any style. But what I do prefer is riding my bike to the local brewery and sampling their latest beer on tap. I am the most interesting man in the world!

Join me for a bike ride to the Twin Elephant Brewery Saturday May 12th, 2018.

The brewery does not serve food so I recommend bringing your own. There are also menus of local eateries at the brewery that deliver.

Meet up at Early Street Community Garden at 10:00am. They are having their Grand Opening and Plant sale. We will Leave the garden at 11:00am sharp.
17 Early St, Morristown, NJ 07960

Ride Stats:
Distance is 9 miles each way.
No drop ride. Easy pace. 10-12 mph.
Terrain: Mostly flat with a couple of short climbs.
Heavy rain cancels ride.
After the brewery, I will be riding my bike back to Morristown. Some may wish to arrange for a ride or look into taking the train.

Stay thirsty mis amigos.

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:  It was a cold night with some fierce howling winds.  Thank goodness for Foxwear clothing.  Bowling was really fun.  I had some great competition especially from Bill, who beat me by 2 pins the first game.  In game 2, Dean was high roller 169 with a turkey as well.  Thank you John H for treating for all the games and Jared for bringing coupons.  Andrew bought us pizza.  Lots of beers too.  Thanks again.  On the ride back, the gorge in Grace Lord Park were a sight to be seen and heard.  I really liked the ice formations on the overhanging trees.  Thanks for the ride guys.  See you next month.

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.

Ride Stats:

Distance is 12 miles.

No drop ride.

December 3rd, 2017. Werewolf Ride.

30 Nov

Let’s ride on the Full Cold Moon this Sunday night.  Meet up at the Morristown Green fountain at 4:45pm with kickstands up at 5.  I have not been riding much lately so let’s do an easy spin.  15 miles or so.  After ride beers as usual.  Wolves will decide where.  Revolution?  The Office?  Hops?  Ahwoooooooo!


Ride Recap:

Another amazing full moon ride!  Four of us ventured out on a chilly Sunday night.  It seemed like we had the roads to ourselves.  We had some really nice views of the super moon all along the ride.  We stopped often and exchanged stories with each other.  The Glynallyn castle was a neet place to stop.  We tried to capture some pictures but they never do it justice.  You really have to be there.  Finishing up at Revolution with great food and beers and most important, great company.  Thanks for the ride.    Awhoooooo!
