Fort Mott State Park, 454 Fort Mott Rd, Pennsville, NJ 08070 GPS: DMS 39° 36’ 09.80 ” N 75° 32' 55.39
Level B-: 14-15mph Distance: 68 (or 57 short-cut) miles
Joke in progress: Ride Leader walks into a bar. Bartender asks, "How about a FLAT ride for a change?" Still working on the punchline..... This scenic loop, near Delaware Bay, will take us on quiet, country roads through farmlands, marshlands, & across peaceful creeks and rivers. Terrain is very gentle -- mostly flat, with a couple of small climbs, but these are less than 150 ft each. Total elevation gain is 1100 ft. This route has been extended beyond the route we did last year - this year's route will venture down to the inlet and marina on the Cohansey River. Rest stops at mile 23 (Alloway), mile 38 (Greenwich), and mile 54 (Hancock's Bridge). SHORT-CUT OPTION: There will be a self-guided short-cut for those wanting to ride ~57 miles. The shorter version will not go down to Greenwich or the inlet, but will have two rest stops at Alloway and Hancock's Bridge. Directions to the starting point at Fort Mott: I-295 South in NJ to Exit 1/NJ-49 E - Broadway for Pennsville/Salem. After 4 miles on NJ-49E/Broadway, turn right onto Fort Mott Rd, and stay on this road for 3.5 miles, til you get to the Bay. Entrance to the State Park will be on your right. From Center City Phila., drive time is LESS THAN ONE HOUR. Carpooling: Leader will be in parking lot of Conklin Playground, 15 E. Church Rd, Elkins Park, at 7:30am. Conklin is half a block below Cottman Ave/Township Line/PA-73 & Church Rd. If you'd like to car-pool, please contact Leader.
