Ride Description
With the prospect of winter weather conditions, this course mostly traverses primary roads with wide shoulders.  Starting from Blairstown, we head south, through Hope and then southern points beyond along the Rt 519 corridor.  After passing through Stewartsville, we then head over to the Delaware River to Milford (where we make a stop at our favorite bakery) and on to New Hope via Rt 29 and 32. This marks the southern extent of the course and we retrace our path back to the finish.

There are several steep, extended climbs.  A triple or 39x27 is highly recommended.
