    * Registration Full, Capacity reached. * We are upping our game from last month's one over night bike camping. This month's tour will be three days - Sat, Sun, & Mon, two nights - Parvin Sate Park and Atsion Lake in South Jersey. So bring two sets of change in cycle wear along with your tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad. A rear rack that carries a set of panniers with the above stuff along with toiletries, a towel, camp wear. If you have a small camp stove but not required, bring that because we will be doing camping meals the two nights and morning breakfasts. Dress to the weather, a wind breaker, warmer jacket, cycling tights, rain gear. We will assemble at the usual place behind the Philadelphia museum. We will take the PATCO Highspeed Line to Camden because of the three flights of steps on the Ben Franklin Bridge, returning Monday over the Tacony Palmya Bridge. I recommend you take the Regional Rail Lines into Philadelphia, boarding at a handicap equipped station. That eliminates car parking for two nights on the street or in a parking facility. So take Monday off from work, spend two nights in a row Bikepacking. Call me with any concerns. RSVP Tues May 29th.

    Bring yer bike & sense of adventure. Some days we'll ride familiar favorite routes, other days we'll scope out new routes. I previewed the route today (Sunday) and made a change in one area - eliminated one road was short but had some fast traffic, and another than had a downed tree (someone who lives right by it was calling it in when we got to it, so not sure if it would be cleared in time for us). So the link to the route is now good to go. Today we'll ride to The Carousel Deli & Bakery in Ringoes (NJ) with a quick stop on in Lambertville if needed on the way out, and Carversville on the return. Lots of scenic country roads that are a mix of some climbs, lots of rolling hills and flats. Will regroup as needed, but must be able to maintain the posted pace.
