Ride Description

Starting from College Hill, we head north up to Bangor and then over to Minsi Lake for the run into Portland.  Crossing the Delaware River, we then head over to Hope, NJ and points beyond.  Some challenging climbs await us, as we work our way over the Jenny Jump ridge.  We finallly reach the Muscenetcong River which we ride along into Asbury.  After a climb up Tunnel Rd, we head over to Milford and then along the Delaware River to Stockton.  We then cross back into Pennsylvania and work our way back to Easton through Carversville, where the hills of Tinicum Township and Williams Township await you.

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