Walk the Bridge and Billy Joe's Ribworks!!

We will enjoy a brisk 4 mile walk on the Newburgh Beacon Bridge followed by a yummy meal at Billy Joe's Ribworks on Front Street in Newburgh. The bridge can be crazy windy so bring a light jacket and a hat and perhaps a bottle of water and your camera. After our walk we will drive a short distance to the waterfront area to Billy Joe's Ribworks for a fine meal.

The bridge parking lot is almost next to 355 Grand Avenue, BALMVILLE, NY. You'll see it.

$2 unless you are new or over 50 events with me. Light rain may not cancel, we will see. Stay tuned if weather is bad. Parking is on Grant AVENUE (Not street, that is on the other side of the Waterfront Road....) directly under where the bridge hits land....no facilities. Grant AVENUE is off the riverfront road with 5 names at a light. Do not leave valuables in your car. :-)

    I always enjoy walking across the Newburgh-Beacon bridge. We had great weather, beautiful views and LOTS of fun people on our walk. I had a good meal at Billy Joe's and also enjoyed the country music and the company. Thank you Sheryl for organizing another fun event.

  • Sharon

    this is my first meet up...how am I to know where you are? what kind of car?

    August 27, 2013

  • Sheryl

    Indeed we will do dinner as I described earlier, we can also stagger starting off, so if people run late they can catch up or catch a group on the way back. We will aim to start close to 5:30. I've found people walk very different speeds on the bridge. :-)

    August 27, 2013

  • Deborah S.

    Will meet you at GRAND avenue at 5:30 as have later appt just be making it.

    August 27, 2013

  • Sheryl

    Yes, you can only walk on the eastbound side. If anyone is afraid of heights this may not be a good idea for you. :-)

    August 27, 2013

  • Susy

    Hi Sheryl, are we walking on the eastbound side both ways?

    August 27, 2013

  • Sheryl

    I will call Billy Joe's later, but I'm thinking they will do better if we stagger our arrival. Those that walk fast can arrive first and make a table of 10, then the next group, et cetera.....that is my guess as to what we do..... :-) As you come off the bridge off you go....otherwise we will dine at 9pm if we wait for everyone. Our reservation is currently 7pm but fast walkers will probably arrive early. I'll let you know how it'll work later. Enjoy your day!!! :-)

    Is anyone going from Middletown? I have a mini van and car pooling is not a problem. I am not so sure now if I want to drive there on my own.

  • Deborah S.

    Meet you at 2 Washington Street? At Ferrry parking at 5:15pm to right as you look at Front of Billie Joe 's

    August 26, 2013

  • Sheryl

    We should try to carpool for this as we will overwhelm the 2 parking lots by the bridge with all these cars. I will be at the large FERRY parking lot which is past Billy Joe's (on the right side) to pick up whoever wants a ride. If others also want to be a driver, please meet us at the ferry lot at 5:20. Remember, leave no valuables in your car....
    :-) You can't leave them in my car either. :-) :-)

    Grant AVENUE, not Grant STREET, that is on the other side of the main road. Put 355 Grand AVENUE into your GPS, that is NOT where we are meeting but it is VERY CLOSE. You can see the parking lot from the mainish road, it is only 3/10ths of a mile in....... :-) NO FACILITIES.

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.
