Below is a repeat of an email sent to the A-23 STS mail group. If you did not receive the email, please let me know and I will add you to the mail group.

Looks like we are finally going to have a nice weekend. Saturday we have a ride from New Brunswick, NJ to Carversville, PA and on Sunday a roundtrip to South Mountain or thereabouts. The Saturday ride requires transportation to and from New Brunswick, NJ; the Sunday ride starts and ends in the City.

New Jersey Transit does not require a bike permit; however, their trains are not accommodating to larger groups of cyclists. I have several questions for the group:

1) Who will be participating in this ride?

2) Who has a car and can drive? We have never had a problem with NJT but if possible it would be good to get 5-6 riders there by car. Its an easy drive.

Regarding Sunday, for those interested let's plan upon a post-ride bite to eat and viewing of Milan-San Remo at 5:00 PM.

My apologies for thinking about Paris-Nice too late, but it was a great race to watch.

some new NJ Transit trains

"Maybe you guys will get lucky and get one of the new trains NJ Transit is running on the NY <-> Trenton line. I ended up on one last week. They are extremely nice. There's a separate handicapped (bike) room right at each handicapped entrance. Each room has 5 flip up seats on each side and can easily accomodate 6 bikes (bring tiedowns). The trains have double decker seating. I've been meaning to call NJ Transit to see if they publish a schedule for these trains.

Sunday's Ride

Can you give me a general description of Sunday's ride to South Mountain? Flat, hilly? Will it be an actual 23mph pace or is that the goal?

I have the SIG on Saturday and it's still early in the season for me, but I might be interested, depending on the likelihood percentage that I'll be dropped.

Ride Detials

The route is flat to rolling with one long gradual climb. There is only one brief stop.
