Milford, NJ 08848
908-505-4077

The Deli opens at 6AM. A wide variety of bagels and other breakfast items are available.

Parking

Due to the limited parking spaces at the Bridge Street Bagel & Deli, please do not park your car there. Parking is available in a parking lot off of Church St (across the street from the Milford Market). Pre-riders can use the church parking lot across from the Deli. Park along the creek, not directly next to the church.

Lodging

Traveling far? Several motels are available in the area. Make your own reservations by calling the hotel directly. 

Finish

After the ride there is generally a gathering of tired and thirsty randonneurs either at Pipolo's Pizza, or at the Ship Inn. Check your brevet card for the exact finish controle designation. Pipolo's has a bit of a old school appearance inside, but  that's one of the endearing charms about the restaurant. The Ship Inn has an English pub atmosphere, serving craft-brewed ales, ciders, and home-made, British-inspired foods with locally sourced ingredients.

Ride Description

With the prospect of winter weather conditions, this course mostly traverses primary roads with wide shoulders. Based on the Beyond Hope to New Hope course, we start this time in the middle at the Milford Bridge St Bagel and Deli, where we head head north, to Hope and points beyond. At Hope, we turn around and head to Hopewell. This marks the southern extent of the course and we work our way along the Delaware River back to the finish in Milford.

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