Announcing a new Meetup for The NJ Biking, Eating & Drinking Group!
What: Sandy Hook Bike Ride
When: Saturday, May 15,[masked]:00 PM
Gateway National Rec Area
Monmouth, NJ 07732
We did this ride last season and it was so awesome, we're doing it again. About a 10 mile round trip pedal, this ride is all on the paved trail path with great views. Really scenic, great for beginners as it's both flat and straight. Afterward, we'll hit up the Clam Hut
for drinks and seafood (if the weather is nice, we can sit out on the deck over the water!).
There is parking available once you cross the bridge over to Sandy Hook. Traffic can be pretty congested so make sure you give yourself plenty of time! We'll plan on meeting in the first parking lot, look for the bright blue yaris and/or a group of bikers. I'll give everyone my cell in the pre-ride email so if for any reason you have to park in one of the other lots, you'll still be able to find us.
Helmets and gloves are always recommended as are water/snacks, you never know when you'll need them. Also, it can get a bit windy on the Hook so bring layers.
NOTE: Sandy Hook does charge a $10/parking fee during the season; if anyone knows when the season officially ends, please post it in the comments. Public restrooms are available at various points throughout the ride; however, no guarantees they'll all be open.
