The Absecon, NJ train station is 15 miles from Ocean City and bikes are allowed on this line anytime. Other riders have their friends, family or spouses meet them in Ocean City so it's a good idea to check with the other riders to see if you might be able to get a return ride back to Philly. I will have a list of riders with contact information. If you are a rider and can provide a ride back to Philly for one other rider plus their bike please let me know. Contact Tom Madle ([masked];[masked] cell), the organizer, to pre-register for the ride and for additional information. YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER BY CONTACTING TOM SINCE THERE IS A 40 RIDER LIMIT. There is no cost to do this ride other than the 5$ sag fee but you will have to bring money for lunch and rest stop snacks. Lunch is at the Silver Coin Diner in Hammonton.
