Biking New Jersey to New York City

By on August 23, 2013 in Beer On A Roll, Bike, Blog

This is about my last bike ride for “Beer on a Roll”, from New Jersey to New York City. I was up at 7:30am, with the smell of bacon wafting in the air. It had been years since I had that experience. It turned out that Bill had cooked breakfast this morning. I wanted to be out of Lambertville, NJ by 9am, as there was a ferry I wanted to catch at 3:55pm in...

Downtown Philly | Philly Brewery

This is about a day in downtown Philly, visiting the historic sites, and making a stop at Dock Street Brewery. Again, it was an early morning and we had to be out by 7am. The cool part of this morning involved Chris and his buddy — both of whom work in downtown Philly — taking me with them into Philly via our bikes. What a treat, as we immediately went...

Today was one of the most broad/extensive/varied rides of the entire trip. Why? Because for the first time, I biked along a “Rails to Trails” path (more on that shortly), took my bike aboard a commuter train to get through downtown Baltimore, then biked at night on a path (no cars) with the light of the moon guiding my way. As I’ve said in other...

D.C. tour on bicycle with Bob the biking tourist guide

By on August 19, 2013 in Beer On A Roll, Bike, Blog

Today was about checking out the sites of D.C. on bicycle, with a tourist guide — also on bike — Bob, my host. Pretty damn cool that Bob took this day to show me around. He didn’t have to do that. But Bob is not only generous, he has a lot of energy and just loves to share with others. We took off at 11am and went to D.C. via an excellent network...
