Almost Summer Ride, June 14, 2014

On June 14, we had an “Almost Summer” bicycle ride. The ride was not well attended. Some of the people who had planned to come had to cancel at the last minute for various reasons. Also, I was enable to offer rides to and from Washington’s Crossing, since Jane needed the van on the day of the ride. So there were just two of us,  Norm Jarosik, senior research physicist in the Princeton Physics Department, and me, Ed Groth, Professor in the physics department.

We rode the Delaware and Raritan Feeder Canal towpath and rail trail from Washington’s Crossing to Bulls Island and back. At Lambertville, we crossed over to New Hope and had lunch on the patio of the Triumph Brew Pub. The patio is across from the New Hope and Ivyland Railroad station, and we got to see the tourist train depart and return.

The official ride was about 26 miles. Since I couldn’t carry anybody with me in my car, I decided to ride from home to the start and back to home when the ride was over, so I wound up with about 48 miles. An interactive map of the my ride is on
