Six Pack Ride: Sunday, 7/10/11
Just a note and a few pics from the ride last Sunday up to the base of the Catskill Mountains. A few of us were clamoring for another run since the Spring Swarm in May. It was a spur of the moment decision and the weather was absolutely perfect. An early rendezvous(7am) in Andover, NJ on 206 started the adventure.
We ran pretty hard up through the best roads that Sussex County had to offer and had breakfast at Elias Cole in Colesville, NJ. From there, we utilized the back roads up to the Shawangunk Mountains and crossed over the "Gunks" on NY 55. After a short respite at the western overlook and fuel down in Kerhonkson, BMW took the point on NY 55/55A past Roundout Reservoir and into Sullivan County. The crew made a stop at the Woodstock Monument for a remembrance of "Three Days of Love & Peace" since we were so close to White Lake(site of the Woodstock Concert in '69).
A spirited romp down some county roads to NY 97, through the "Hawks Nest," and into Port Jervis had us ready for a late lunch at the Erie Hotel. The street was blocked off for a classic car show that day, but we managed to secure parking in the Train Depot lot next door. After food and and a refueling, it was time to say goodbye and we headed for home over High Point after entering the Garden State. Deb & I arrived back at the ranch by 7pm with 286 miles recorded for the day.
In attendance: rmb, BMW, zaq123, rob1100r, Queen Bee, and STDocLizard1.
