Nelson, I can't make 1 PM, but I'd appreciate some advice on a loop in that area. I'm in Sparta, and was considering an out and back along Stanhope Road, but that seems rather boring.

Hey Nellie. I should be able to make this. I have to work til noon but can ride afterwards. How far are you thinking? I know you're training for the Longest Day so I want to see what I'm getting myself into.

BTW I'll be coming from near Rt 80/287 intersection if that helps determine a meeting spot.

Thanks, Nelson. Ideally, I'd like to find a good 25-30 mile loop in the area that I can gradually build upon. I have been able to piece together a 20 plus through Andover, but it involves a bit too much on 517, which has little to no shoulder.

LOL!

Man, that hurts just to look at. We should start a thread about that ride because I'd love to hear more about it, how you plan to do it, etc etc. 200+ miles sounds just absurd to me.

Nelson, that would be perfect. Since I live in Sparta, would I be able to tweak it a bit so I can roll right from my door?
