My New Flag

I just finalized the proof for my new personalized flag. I purchased it from Gettysburg Flag Works. I did it online. It was an unusual request so it took them 2 weeks to get back to me with price and proof. Minor changes where made and finalized in less than 24 hrs. Lead time is 2-3 weeks. I should have it in time for the 5 Boro BikeNY ride.

Loving everything about the ride!!

Dog and his best friend Donald

I 1st met these guys on my 1st self contained tour in 2003 with my son. Both dog and duck ran to the fence barking and quaking. It was obvious the duck thought it was a dog. My son and I just laughed. 5 years later they are still best friends only more sedate. I hope you enjoy this short video.

Biking in New Jersey

As a member the The Central Jersey Bike Club I receive a monthly news letter called the HUB. It lists all rides for the month and has various stories and articles. In the February Hub it listed a link to NJ State Transportation on Biking which was offering free cycling maps. The maps were for various rides in the state and The NJ East Coast Greenway portion. This is part of a multi use Trail in progress from Maine to Florida. Also included is a route from High Point to Cape May. CJBC sponsors this ride and is called the Longest Day as it is a 200 mile ride.

I received the route maps and was quite impressed. The High Point Cape May and ECG are larger map books that are made with a light plastic type lamination and quite durable. They also are the size that will fit in a standard map case. All maps come with a road map overview and easy to follow cycling Q sheets.

Just click on the above link and go to free information. Fill out the the required information and maps you would like and in less than 2 weeks you will receive this great guide.

Have fun and Keep Riding
