Climbing Up and Up for Some Pie
WE WILL CHECK AT 7AM IN THE MORNING OF THAT DAY HOW THE WEATHER IS HOLDING UP! KEEP ON CHECKING THE WEBSITE OR TEXT US IN THE AM TO SEE IF WE CANCELLED.
Remember the Revolutionary Ramble? Or you could not join because you had no car? Our new ride starts from The Morristown train station (NJ) and takes us through some beautiful sweeping hills and some STEEP climbs. We are getting an adrenaline boost via yummy delicious drooling good pies at Sun Orchards in Randolph, NJ, before we ride the last 12 miles to the train station.
Lunch is at Fresco Mexican, frescomexican.com, at 22 miles in Chester after climbing the the first major hill. Rest, and refresh on some serious nice food.
This ride is an advanced ride because of some STEEP climbs. Total elevation gain is however just 2,884 feet. Average speed will be 15-17 mph on flats (not climbing). Take climbs at your own comfort level. Road and hybrid bikes ONLY.
Bring 2 backup tubes, bungee cord to tie your bike in the train, small lock, and CASH for lunch.
