Beginner Bike Path Ride, Saddle River Bike Path

 

Saddle River Park Bike Path

Park address:

18 Railroad Avenue, Rochelle Park, NJ 07662

The entrance to the park is very close to this address. Drive in to the park and I will try to be in the closest parking lot to the entrance. We will try to leave at 6:30 and ride for an hour and a half. Then go out for food and drinks nearby. The path is generally flat. We will go at a slow pace that does not mean a slow cruse, but a fast enough pace so we get a little work out. I will make sure everyone keeps up and no one is left behind. We will go one way for 30 min to 45 and then back for food and beer.

Caution:

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.

I'm thinking of Dos Cubanos for food and drinks later. They sell wine by the bottle or you can bring your own wine or beer at no charge, I don't get it but food looks good. Any ideas of a place after?

    I would be down for another Saddle Brook ride, considering I didn't make the earlier one ;)

  • Jenn

    I'd be up for it...though I might only be able to do the paved part. If anyone wants to do the Saddle River path again, let me know...it is not far from me and I go a lot.

    How about a ride on the Joseph Clarke Rail Trail (partly paved) - Tappan to Nyack? Great views of the river and can come back along river road and ride out to end of Piermont Pier.

    I understand the concerns, but I just checked the forecast. It says 60% no rain. I think we should make the decision no later than 5 pm.

    June 27, 2013

    The weather is looking a little sketchy for tomorrow's ride. When will a determination be made about whether we ride or not?

    June 27, 2013

    • Gina

      Any thoughts on rescheduling for Friday, July 12?

    Everyone will be in for a treat. I've ridden this trail many times. The park is in a beautiful setting in the woods. Totally paved.

    June 21, 2013

    • Jo

      I think I rode part of this trail in the glen rock area..nice setting but being wooded expect some bugs.
