Jules, Len, Deirdre, Elizabeth, Kristen, and anyone else on the board who sometimes moonlights on two wheels. Any interest? Looks like a fun 60 mile night time ride on the D&R Canal path from Bound Brook to Trenton.
WHAT: The NIGHTRIDE is an
unsupported, untimed ride for
fun! (Remember fun?) It is a
tough ride in usually cold,wet and
of course, dark conditions. Meant
for VERY fit riders. The ride is
from Bound Brook to Trenton
(and back)along the D&R
Canal -usually frozen,snow
covered or completely muddy this
time of year.
WHEN: December 10th; 7pm-3am
(it's a long ride- 60 miles)
WHERE: Meet at the Dunkin Doughnuts
across from the Bound Brook
WHY: If you don't know that answer, you
probably shouldn't come
What to bring:Headlamp, reflectors and blinking
light for your bike ; a change of clothes (you will get wet
and want to change on the trip at least once)Warm
socks, gloves, hat for under your helmet,any food or
water you will need for an 8 hour ride, spare tubes,
pumps and some small amount of cash for when we
stop in Trenton at the 7-11 before turning around. A cell
phone (in a waterproof plastic bag)is a good idea if you
can't make the whole ride and need to call for a friend to
come get you! There is no "sweep" for this ride.
"This is Watchung, not Siberia. Nothing bad will happen"...except bear attacks apparently!
Sounds like fun however i'm out for two weeks not because of injury but rather massive schoolwork. December 13th will be my last day of classes and i will be back in the full swing of things. I can't wait.
