North Meets South - New Hope: Option 3 (AB groups)
DETAILS ARE NOT FINALIZED? THIS IS A BRIEF INTRO ON WHAT TO EXPECT!
Description: This is our 4th year - Each year the number of riders taking this trip grows. We head to New Hope to meet up with PhillyMTCC at the New Hope Train Station. The 3 clubs will then ride together along route 29 to the Lumberville General Store for lunch.
Wear Ocean Blue Club Kit or a Major Taylor Kit.
There are 4 options...you pick your poison! Options 2, 3 & 4 head to New Hope
Option 3 (lunch with PhillyMTCC) 9:00AM meet up time
This option will start at the Conoco Gas Station, 1008 Amwell Road, Hillsborough Township, NJ 08844 (intersection of route 533 and Amwell Road) and wait for the MTCCNJ members to arrive from Millburn.
MTCCNJ and MTCJ will continue on riding south heading to the New Hope Train Station. We connect with PhillyMTCC then head to Lumberville Cafe for a bite to eat before heading back to the Conoco Gas Station. This option will give you 61 miles and 2600' feet of elevation.
We roll at 9:15 AM PROMPT! If you arrive at 9:16 AM meet us along the route.
NOTE: Major Taylor Central Jersey (MTCJ) may start at PJ's Pancake House and cycle over to Amwell Road for the meet-up.
