Yes. it's finally happening.

The ride begins in Trenton, NJ, and travels, via the Delaware tow path to historic Bordentown (home of Tom Paine). From there, we move into the interior -- back roads and old-style country diners and flea markets -- with lunch at Tootie's, a New Egypt institution (along with their spectacular one-of-a-kind ice cream sundaes), before heading out into the uncharted northern fringes of the Pine Barrens, the remote Manasquan Reservoir, Allaire State Park, and, finally, the Edgar Felix Memorial Bikeway . . . all the way to the Atlantic coast.

We meet at Penn Station-Amtrak Waiting Area (31 & 8th Avenue, near the escalators) for the 8:14 AM train to Trenton. Return is via Manasquan. Those meeting us in Trenton, we'll be arriving at 9:45AM, and will gather near the bathrooms just inside the main entrance.

Note: Come self-contained (spares, tools, pump), as there are no bail outs or bike shops (though you may be able to hail an Uber).
