Sunday Morning Solo Ride: 59 miles
Like I had planned, I showed up around 8 AM in Frenchtown, NJ with my Dahon folding bike ready to take on the metric century at the CBBC Covered Bridge Event. It wasn’t as cold as I thought it would be, but the wind was strong and created quite a wind chill effect. I saw John W, Joey B, and Rick B before or during the ride. I brought plenty of food and drink along on the ride, so I was not exhausted at the end. Not a particularly fast ride, but not too slow either. I got chicked once. Some guys told me there was a woman in the train of Guy’s Cycling riders, so I am taking their word for it. I did not see her. They passed me in a hazardous intersection and I was watching out for the traffic. Had a good day. CLICK HERE to see the route.
Covered bridges I hit were as follows in the order I list them: Uhlerstown, Knecht, Sheard’s Mill, Loux, Cabin Run, Frankenfield, and Erwinna. Yep, I climbed the hill behind the Uhlerstown bridge. That road is not closed until December 1 and will reopen April 1. My chain jammed in my bike’s chain guide twice today. Not sure why. Happened about the same time of the ride just before the last rest stop of the ride.
