UPDATE SEP 29 2023: Flooding may force me to abandon the planned route, and do a different one. If that's the case, I'll use this route instead:

Link to alternate flood route (I'll only use if I have to)

It feels like forever since I was able to list a ride for a Sunday!

So we'll do the ride to that Raritan Bakery that Laura OLPH found, that I set up the world's worst route to, that Joe E and Luis C were able to fix for me.

The usual stuff: No toilets at start. Stops as needed. Planned rest stop at Raritan Bakery.

Faster riders are welcome to come to the start, take the route, and go off the front; I've asked Joe E to lead that group. I intend to ride within the stated pace range. Nobody dropped.

Riders-in can meet us at Griggstown Firehouse about fifteen minutes after the scheduled ride start (or anywhere else 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.

Between weather and other commitments, I haven't led since Labor Day, and I won't be able to do one at the picnic next week, so I hope to see youse at this one.
