The Great Pancake Ride FB#1 A Warm Place(Friends)on a Winters Day
The bridge is back and so are we. This past year saw the reopening of the Bayonne Bridge, the way the Club made their way to Bayonne since the 90's.. And one of the most enduring one is the Pancake Ride. Okay, so maybe you don't have pancakes. The Broadway Diner is full of everything that's good for your soul if not for your waistline. The pies and the layer cakes are fantastic. That's if you have room. It's an easy ride across the bay on the ferry but, a LITTLE more challenging on the bridge. Then, we ride our bikes to the Broadway Diner in Bayonne. We will dine outside in their parking lot or take away if they don't have suitable outdoor seating per new guidelines. Then wend our way back along the shore to Jersey City. Then, we'll take the ferry back to the WTC(The Port Authority supplies us with a ride for the price of the train if the train is not running). So, grab your bike, hold tight to your friends and your memories and make some new ones. Hold on. The winter is coming. As to the picture, that was taken by Joanne Guralnick of three great friends in Philly during the Summer of years ago. Down to two? Maybe. I'm still checking for pennies.
IMPORTANT REQUIREMENTS: A reminder that you must register for the ride and that the exact start location will be forwarded to the registered riders. Please 'unregister' if you can not make the ride so waited list folks can move up and take the slot. All riders should come equipped with a mask, hand sanitizer/wipes, a spare tube, sunscreen, snacks and a bike in good condition, as well as being familiar with the current criteria for riding with the Club.
IF THE WEATHER IS COOPERATIVE WE WILL USE THE BAYONNE BRIDGE IF NOT WE WILL USE THE PATH TRAIN.
