North Meets South - New Hope: Option 4 (C group)
DETAILS ARE NOT FINALIZED? THIS IS A BRIEF INTRO ON WHAT TO EXPECT!
Description: 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 4 (lunch with PhillyMTCC) 9:15AM meet up time
This option will start at the South Branch River Trail, Branchburg, NJ 08853 (crossing the Neshanic Station Bridge at Elm and River Road).
You will travel along Amwell Rd, Wertsville Road and Old York Road heading to the New Hope Train Station to meet up with PhillyMT. After this short rest period all clubs (MTCCNJ, MTCJ & PhillyMT) will head to the Lumberville Cafe for a bite to eat before heading back to the South BranchRiver Trail. This option will give you 46 miles and 2000' feet of elevation.
We roll at 9:30 AM PROMPT! If you arrive at 9:31 AM meet us along the route.
NOTE: Starting here you will miss the meetup and photo shoot at the Conoco Gas Station with the MTCCNJ group leaving Millburn and members of Major Taylor Central Jersey. You will see these groups at your first stop, The New Hope Train Station.
