North meets South in New Hope
Description: Heading to New Hope to meet-up with Philly & Baltimore for lunch. We did this ride as an ad hoc ride last year and it was a blast. This year it's on the calendar as an official ride. Saddle up and get ready to cycle for a fast pace to New Hope, PA. No, it's not the same route as the August, Newark to New Hope Ride. PLEASE WEAR THE WHITE CLASSIC KIT!
There are 3 options...you pick your poison! Option 2 & 3 head to New Hope
Option 1 (NO meet up with Philly) 7:00AM wheels hit pavement
52 mile route: Start location Millburn - This will take you to the meet up spot where we connect with the Major Taylor Central Club and YOU return back to Millburn. 1200 feet is just enough to get the HR up. We roll at 7AM PROMPT! If you arrive at 7:01AM meet us along the route.
Option 2 (meet with the Philly club) 9:00AM meet up time
