This ride is not for everybody: a substantial stretch is milled road (apparently not due to road construction, as there's no sign of any work being done), and the route back is along Main Street in Somerville and Bound Brook. But the stop is at the Italian bakery in Raritan, a place that has its partisans among some of my regular riders.

Link to route here, although I don't guarantee I won't change it. 39 miles.

Usual Plain Jim Lo B pace; nobody dropped. Places for the speedy to sprint.

No toilet at the start. There is reasonable privacy for the adventuresome. You can decide if you're reasonable or adventuresome.

I had a complaint about bad COVID-19 behavior that I, myself, did not witness, so let's remember this thing has not gone away, and act with a care for the person who's just a little more concerned about the virus than you are, please. I also had a request to limit the size of the ride, which I'm not doing at this point. Let's see how things go.

Riders-in can meet us at the Griggstown Firehouse at 9:15 (or anywhere along the route), but let me know if you're going to do that.
