The way that Steve has the ride set up, with a number of places to meet, it would be easy to do the morning section, and have lunch, or the afternoon section after lunch. Not everyone will do the entire ride, but there are some great tags to be seen!

Doc is correct.
Anyone can make a partial day out of this.

As we have done in the past anyone can join at any time and leave at any time.
I would just ask that when someone leaves us for the day they tell someone so we know we did not loose you.

I gave times for the first three towns we will be in.
From there just look for us along the Hudson River () or join us at lunch which is scheduled for 12:30 at Houlihans.

If anyone wants approximate times for any of the other stops along the way just ask here because I have my times written out so I don't lag behind.
That would make me miss something that I want to see ! ! !

YES, IT IS A LOOOOOOONNNGG DAY !
But I have always enjoyed getting out and doing this.

Plus I get to meet my fellow riders from across New Jersey.

I set up my first ride just for me to get out and see all of this interesting stuff!
As you can see from the previous pages !

I just find it interesting (and humbling) that anyone would want to join !

That's good information, guys. I've already got alternate plans to spend some time with my girl and take her riding, and she would't be into heading up for this event.

Just a heads up, Sunday is the Hoboken Arts Festival. They close down Washington st. You won't be able to ride up to Carlos Bakery, and parking will likely be a bear. Not sure how much it will affect traffic in Weehawken and jersey city.

Thanks rgb2cmyk.

Looks like Carlos is out then.

Do you think that will affect Sybils Cave too?
I really wanted to see that !

You should still be able to see cybils cave, it's along the river and river rd will be open. That being said expect traffic and tough parking but you should be fine. If you find parking there you can walk to Carlos bakery, though you won't get the Bruce shot.

The early morning session...

Was able to do a few hours of the ride this morning. Thanks, everyone for the company...

Here's a couple from George Washington's "Turn Bridge", with Shawn climbing down to see the gears, and Debbie checking out the river:





Got to the soccer game by two in Cherry Hill. The oldest won his State Cup game. Into the semi-finals....
