Western New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania
The days are long, so lets make the most of all that sunlight. This is a long but not very fast ride from Trenton to Philadelphia and back again.
We'll meet at Penn Station (West side, in front of the NJ Transit ticket windows) at 8 in order to take the 8:14 to Trenton. From Trenton we'll ride through New Jersey to Camden and cross over the Ben Franklin Bridge into Philadelphia for lunch. Then we ride back to Trenton. Overall around 70 miles of riding with plenty of bailouts for those who don't want to do the whole thing.
Sunset is at 8:32, so there should be plenty of time to ride a measly 70 miles. There is even extra credit segment available for those who want to do even more.
We will roughly be following these two routes:
Bring the usual: $ for train tickets, bungee cords for the train, lunch or $ for lunch, water, locks, spare tubes.
Highly suggested: lights. Even though we have all that daylight better safe than sorry.
Please do your own two minute bike check BEFORE we board the train. You don't want to pay for train fare to Trenton only to find out later that you have a mechanical problem.
If you want to meet the ride somewhere other than New York Penn (e.g. Trenton) please message the ride leaders so we know to look out for you.
