Quick Spin Spring Training Ride #4
So, the forecast for Sunday calls for steady 20+ MPH winds from the west-northwest. Time to cancel the training ride, right? WRONG!
Here at 5BBC, we believe bicycling should be fun and spontaneous. So we are running the ride from Dover NJ and riding to NYC with the wind at our backs the whole way!
Route is here (subject to final tweaks). We will take a NJ transit 9:11 train from Penn Station to Dover (fare: $15.25) and then ride east for approximately 55 miles back to the George Washington Bridge. Along with the tailwind, this design of ride gives us 400 feet of net *descent* over the length of the route as an added bonus. Target cruising speed is 16 MPH on the flats, but we might find 20+ makes more sense!
A ride not to be missed. Bring two spare tubes and means to inflate, pocket food, money for lunch and for trainfare.
