New Jersey -- Coast to Coast I
UPDATE: NOAA says heavy afternoon rains and gusts. We'll rescheduled this to August 13.
An inaugural two-part 5BBC ride that traverses the length of New Jersey, from the tranquil Delaware River to the roiling Atlantic Ocean! Join us and make history!
This ride begins in Prineton Junction, not quite the Delaware, but close enough, and travels through tranquil back roads and farmlands. toward Freehold, New Jersey. But unlike previous rides to Freehold that then pick up the Henry Hudson north to Matawan, we'll keep a steady southeastly course to Manasquan, with the last third of the ride on the traffic-free Freehold-Jamesburg Rail Trail that eventually becomes the Edgar Felix Memorial bike path all the way to the Atlantic We'll have two lunch stops: one halfway just outside Freehold; the other in Manasquan, before we board a train back to New York City. Map and cue sheet here.
We meet at Penn Station-Amtrak Waiting Area (31 & 8th Avenue, near the escalators) for the 9:14 AM train to Trenton. Those meeting us at Princeton Junction, we'll be arriving at 10:26AM, and will have a coffee and bathroom stop nearby at the Dunkin Donut (Wallace and Rt. 571). Remember: Return is via Manasquan. And we hope to catch the 5:03 PM express back to Penn Station!
