i'm definitely going to do it. instead of going to deer park for the ride tomorrow, i may do this. i figured it was pretty flat, but i would rather put the miles in the saddle of my mt. bike than my b@stardized road bike. i actually met a guy this morning wake boarding that rides and knows a guy that either does it or has done it. i'll post up to let folks know the skinny though.

We did it with the wives last year heythorp...

I've ridden patriots from near speedwell lake to, what is it, Mendham? It's around a 20 mile round trip. It's a fast arobic kinda ride. Fun to work in a loop at LM as well for some hills.

IMHO if you are just looking for milage and time in the saddle nothing will do more for you then the road. I know its boring as shit.
I always wondered why, with any given riding opportunity, I'd always grab the mountain bike instead of my road bike! Oh! That's why! It's not that road bike ride is boring, per se... it's just that compared to mountain bike riding, road riding is boring. It's just not..... the same!

You hear that heythorp, when are you going to sell that road bike and buy a "fun" bike?

Patriots path

I believe that Patriots path keeps going and going and going. The rail trail through the black River WMA is part of Patriots path. I think the newest map is on line.
