    Level D: 11mph, 33 miles. Meet at 30th Street Station. The ride leaves at 7:45 am. River is 6 feet over normal levels and not recommended for tubing. Will reschedule when conditions improve. Heading up to Bucks County River Country in Point Pleasant, PA https://www.rivercountry.net/ , weather permitting. Meeting at 30th St Station 7:45 am near Dunkin Donuts for 8:04 train to Doylestown. 13 miles to tubing place, arriving around 11 am. After tubing, riding down to Yardley, 20 miles, with a stop in New Hope/Lambertville. I am planning on 11- 4 at the tubing place, to allow for check-in, shuttle bus, changing clothes, etc. Anticipate catching the 6:53 pm train from Yardley, but trains run every hour, so will adjust as needed. This will be an all day expedition, but if want only to go tubing, meet us in Point Pleasant, but please notify me so I can contact you if our plans change. Book your tubing ticket for 11:30. You must buy tubing tickets online ahead of time. I would wait until the night before or morning of, although I was assured we could apply tickets for a later date. You will see that they offer 2 and 3 hour tubing trips, but you choose which you want when you get there. As of today, the river is 5 feet above normal, so the current is running fast, which shaves the time down about 25%. Please see their website if you are considering going - the Policies and Tips page in particular. The most important thing is you need to wear old sneakers or water shoes, because of the rocky river bottom, and bring a change of clothes. They have changing rooms there, but no showers. Price for a tube is $28, although I saw a Groupon deal for $20. This is an exploratory trip, so flexibility is the key. Food/coffee stops as desired. I will check the river and weather conditions by 7am the morning of, to determine whether to go or postpone. SEPTA tells me that there should be 3 cars on each train, which would allow 6 bicyclists, but I am limiting to 4 for peace of mind. Cue sheets will not be available.
