Road Ride strenuous meet at Riverside Park Kearny, NJ
Across from Dunkin Donuts 936 Passaic Ave Kearny, NJ
You must have a road bike or a fast hybrid with smooth tires. This will be a very hilly ride; what goes up must come down. We will climb from Kearny through Bellville, Bloomfield, Montclair and to Cedar Grove. We will be riding up East Bradford Avenue the steepest hill in the area that I have found. Then to Montclair State Collage and the downhill begins where you can hit speeds of 30+ miles an hour. Most of the roads I'm taking will have a shoulder wide enough for a car to easily pass you. I think that it's one of the safest road ride routes. The total ride is 22miles and usually takes me 2 hours and 30 minutes. I do want to keep the ride pace fast and also stay in a visual distance group. My average speed is 14 miles per hour on this ride. I'm not the fastest up hills but I keep trying
This is a ride to meet riders you are responsible for yourself. I don't have tires or any supplies there are bike shops in Montclair but have your bike ready for the ride. If you get a flat have a tube.
I do not rike on wet roads. I will cancel meet up if roads are wet.
I am not a first responder or have a CPR certification. You are responsible for your own actions, by saying yes to the ride you are taking on your own risk. Mountain biking takes a lot of energy and tends to push the body. If you have heart problems, high blood pressure, or any other problems that may put stress on your body, please speak with me before this event or ask your doctor. Even though it is an easy ride, it can be taxing on the body.
