Sheesh, but it's been raining. As I post this, both of the causeways across the canal are closed, so lets start at Veteran's Park in Belle Mead/Montgomery and go up to that Italian Bakery in Raritan. See the route:

The usual stuff: Stops as needed. Planned rest stop at that Italian Bakery. (If you're going to use the facilities, please plan to buy something...)

Note that some have complained that RideWithGPS underreports the amount of climb.

Faster riders are welcome to come to the start, take the route, and go off the front. I intend to ride within the stated pace range. Nobody dropped.

Riders-in can meet us along the route, but let me know in advance if you're gonna do that.

If you're planning to listen to music on this ride, use bone-conduction headphones. Earbuds, over-the-ear headphones, or music audible to other riders, are not permitted.

I hope to see youse, on this ride, and in the new year.
