Details are available at the stunning Web 1.0 page I maintain.
I will provide any details as they come in but if you’ve done it before you already know the drill. Tell your family, friends, enemies (if they ride), and generally spread the word. We’re getting an even later start than usual but we’d like to get as many people out as possible for this one.
My neighbor is a cameraman for Jersey 12 and he may be able to get a crew out for this year’s event.
But as always, I look forward to seeing you all again this year.
That’s right. But if you can make it to any other Jersey and want to do the ride simultaneously and virtually so to speak that would be fine. We’ve had one other rider do that. Just remember to send your check for 25 U.S. dollars to the address on the page. Given the state of the dollar right now that should be a drop in the bucket for you.
And after the ride we’ll be sure to throw a shrimp on the barbie for you. Or a barbie to the shrimp if you prefer.
I will not be able to attend this year, but this is a great ride. I’d encourage all who are nearby to attend. The ride is an enjoyable cruise the length of a nice beach community called Long Beach Island. It’s 19 miles, and not (at all) hilly, so even for folks who’ve never ridden that distance, it’s very doable.
i will be attending, once again. i have just reordered a new coker, to be built this week. my goal is under an hour for the ride. hopefully obieone and (joe graff) will be attending with me.i am coming from philly and have a seat in my car open…
Haha yeah good luck! Last year another rider and I completed it in 2 hours flat - but that is including a 20 minute or so ice cream break :). We weren’t going for records, but 5 of us has quite a lead on the rest of the group.
It’s not a race though, everyone that can should try and come down - with any sized uni.
There is still time to register, or just show up at the last minute if you are not sure of your plans. I’ll be printing T shirts again, and they will be available at the start of the run. The cost is included in your registration, and I’ll have extras available for a donation to the cause.
I’ll also print up the frame decals again; a lot of folks seemed to like them last year.
If you can’t make it out, you can still help support Alliance For A Living Ocean. You can purchase a T shirt, and all the funds will go to the ALO. I’ll post the T shirt design later this week. The shirt itself is a nice Hanes 5250T tagless short-sleeve, the color will be a natural (like a light beige). I’ve used this shirt and color for other events, and it looks and wears very well.
If you’re driving south on the Garden State Parkway take note that the speed limit between exits 100 and 80 has been reduced to 55 mph. The police had been aggressive there about enforcement for a while. I don’t know what the situation will be tomorrow.
