Either or works. We've met up at a more less half way point in Jersey last year but new places are always welcome.

Nice to walk around and look at but large crowds of bikes riding together isn't my cup of tea.....keeping it manageable is more fun.

We meet at Wash cycle works last time and ended up at High point. that might be a little to far north of a meet-up spot for some of our more southern friends in NJ.But I'll do it.

Somewhere between 130 -140 miles for me depending on exact meet spot.

Nothing like stretchin the legs early in the day.
