    I won't be able to get to the Gwb bus terminal by the meeting time for the 10:40 bus. So sorry. Enjoy the hike! It should be a beautiful day!

    Allan, actually better if you park at Linwood Plaza (there is a CVS, Bank of America, supermarket, etc.) - cross the main road then wait at the bus stop next to the gas station. Need to be there by 10.45 in order to be sure to catch the #9 bus. Good luck.

    I am getting on the #9 bus (CoachUSA Rockland Bus line) at Lemoine Avenue and Washington Avenue, about five minutes after it leaves the GWB bus station. Allan, if you can park near here you can get the bus here or along the route in Fort Lee also.

    I am trying to find the exact meeting spot by LDEO on Google maps. No luck with C9 Bus route finding "Boy Scout Camp". If someone can provide a link, I think it would be easier for me to drive. Also I can give a lift from the Jersey City area.

    Which stop? I see stops like:
    GW Bridge Station
    Fort Lee Bridge Plaza
    Linwood Pk Linwood Ave rt 9
    Coytesville (BayviewAve & Rt 9W)
    Englewood Cliffs (Palisade Ave & Rt 9W)
    Tenafly (Clinton Ave & Rt 9W)
    Alpine (Closter Dock Rd & Rt 9W)

    Are hiking boots really necessary? I don't own any

    • Manuelita

      Iman, I've participated in several of Rolande's hikes. When Rolande says to wear hiking boots, then you must wear hiking boots.

      Thanks! Have fun. I don't own hiking boots so will try to find another walk for tomorrow.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
