As a lover of bike riding (the non motor version – that you pedal) I am always looking for a great ride in Bergen County, NJ. I ride solo a few times a week but going with a group has a number of benefits, such as:
- People to keep you company
- People to help if something goes wrong (hit by a car – it happens) flat tire, get lost etc…
- You can go longer distances (or faster if that is your goal) since the group keeps you motivated
- Find new roads and paths to take
Last week I found a group that meets at the Tenafly Bicycle Workshop. They leave at 8am Sunday mornings (they don’t ride in the rain) and go for about a 35 mile ride through a number of the neighboring towns. The pace is very comfortable for beginner and intermediate cyclists. There are some hills but overall the terrain covered is flat. If you have a road bike, a helmet and cycling shoes (ideal but not required) come out and join the group. Best part is it is free and you can meet some fellow bike riders in Bergen County.
If you are looking for longer and faster paced rides (50 miles at 18+ mph) let me know. I found a group that also meets Sunday mornings not too far from the Tenafly Bicycle Workshop.
Bergen County has some great places to ride so get out there, see the county and get some exercise.
If you live in the county and want to ride just let me know.
