Announcing a new Meetup for The NJ Biking, Eating & Drinking Group!

What: Great Swamp Ride - 50 miles (rescheduled from June date due to weather)

When: Saturday, July 17,[masked]:00 AM

Where:
Somerset County Parks Environmental Education Center
190 Lord Stirling Rd
Basking Ridge, NJ 07920
[masked]

This ride has been recommended to me several times by NJ Bike members, so here it is! There is a shorter 18 mile loop, so if you want to either lead or pedal it, let me know!

The Great Swamp Tour consists of two loops passing through and around the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. A remnant of a glacial lake in southern Morris and northern Somerset counties, the Great Swamp forms the source of the Passaic River.

Parking is available at the Somerset County Environmental Education Center, Lord Stirling Equestrian Center or on local streets in Basking Ridge and Far Hills. We'll be meeting at the Education Center, so try there first and text/call if you're having issues finding parking.

You can see the route here (click on Great Swamp Ride): http://www.state.nj.us/transportation/commuter/bike/tours.shtm

We'll be eating lunch at The Sterling Hotel...hopefully in the back patio if the weather cooperates! Thanks to member, Michael, for the suggestion! They really DO have a great beer selection. :)

Just a reminder, there is a $20 membership fee for the year. You can pay online or in cash at the next event. Thank you to all who have paid thus far, you're awesome! :)
