Is Kline's the private hunting club? Didnt realize you could go in.
not sure - it just isn't passable by a car onto river rd, and there are a couple legitimate mansions in there. Would think that they are too close for hunting.
I just assumed it was there to keep wayward traffic out.

the ride through trump national is nice - some good picture opportunities.
 
Depends on how many hills you guys want to climb. Here's one - this one we started in the Otto park lot - a rare road ride where I actually drove to the start:

This is will bring me to the brink of death but I think I can crawl away alive

EDIT: Damn... this is more climbing than the Bear Mountain ride I did couple of years ago... by 500ft

Are you really going?
Here is my excuse of the day.... sinus not feeling good and feeling tired today. Besides, my FF helmet coming today. Its out for delivery and I need to secure it before the wife comes home.
Definitely mcbp today.....my rear tire was flat when I went into the garage this morning. I'm leaking air at the seam of the rim (it looks like it's separating ever-so-slightly). So I put a boatload of orange seal in and inflated it 50 pounds. Hopefully the sealant will seal it up nice for at least today. If not, I can always just throw a tube in.

Sterling Sunday morning is looking pretty good right now. I don't believe there's too many Kiddy activities until later on in the day.....
 
First time on a CX bike on PP... well off road for that matter. It was rougher than I thought it would be. Slippery roots on the skinny tires. 80% fun and 20% I wish I had a mtb.
Nice thing about the sourlands is there are bunch of climbs very close together, and almost all end up on relatively flat roads that surround the ridge. You can climb until you've had enough, then bail.
Let's do something on the road/gravel with Rick, I won't have the new bike ready (need to borrow the press, Rick you going to Allaire tomorrow?)
I haven't been on the roads and any sustained climbs for months. Time to rapid train for this....

You ppl are sick.... you went back and forth just to get more elevation it seems. lol
Let me figure out my schedule. If I can get my brother to baby sit, this could be a possibility for next Saturday. I should know by Wednesday or so.
