Fall Motorcycle Ride

18 Sep

Fall Motorcycle Ride

Open to club members and a few friends (keep it easy to manage).  The date is Saturday October 23 with a rain date of Sunday the 24th.  If it’s a rainout both days we’ll wait for the spring!   I have finalized the route:  If you’re interested or have questions call me at 973-875-6322 or email me.

“THE” Route Has Been Decided – The route for the Oct. 23 (rain date 24th) Fall Ride has been finalized.  We will meet at the Lake Hopatcong Pathmark on Route 15 in Jefferson Township.  There is a diner and a bagel shop at this location and gas stations adjacent so you can “fuel up”.  Pre-ride briefing at 8:30 and leave at 9:00. 

We will go up Route 15 into Sparta and then head up into Vernon and go into Orange County NY.  We will go to Port Jervgis and then take NY Rt 97 along the Delaware  to Narrowsburg and cross into Pike County PA and go west towards Lake Wallenpaupack.  From there we head south to Milford and back into NJ.  To see the route, go to Google Maps and search for “m/c route A” 

Route length is about 100 miles.  We’ll take a few “stretch” breaks  and  lunch at  Lake Wallenpack ( Hawley PA).  We should be back at our start location by mid-afternoon. 

If you have questions or are definitely going, please contact me at .

 A few guests are welcome, as long as we can keep the overall group to a reasonable size.

October 9th – Greenwood Lake Hike

Since last year was so much fun in inclement weather…this year should be even better!

Join us for a five mile loop hike in the N.J. Highlands to an overlook above Greenwood Lake. At 1400 ft. above sea level, most of the lake can be seen along with lots of fall color.  The trail starts off steeply but quickly levels off onto glacially scrubbed ridges. We will pass a mountain pond called Surprise Lake before arriving at the overlook where we will have lunch before heading back down skipping and laughing ( mandatory ).

We will meet at the A&P on Union Vally Rd. at 9:00 A.M.
