  • September 18:00AM
    Fri September 1, 2017 - Fort Mot, NJ, Delaware Fort, Delaware City (ad-hoc ride)

    Level C, 12 mph, 85 miles. Meet at Cosmic Cafe, Lloyd Hall, # 1 Boathouse Row, Kelly Dr, East Fairmont Park. The ride leaves at 8:00 am. Fort Mot, NJ, Delaware Fort, Delaware City. I have always wanted to cycle to Fort Mot, near Salem, NJ then take the tourist ferry to Fort Delaware State Park in the middle of the Delaware River, finalizing the river crossing to Delaware City, DE ever since John Boyle, moderator of Cycling in the Suburbs' Facebook page mentioned this in a Facebook message on the completion of the Delaware and Chesapeake Canal Trail. This an 85 mile ride with a boat ride in the middle. Meet 8 AM at Cosmic Cafe for a starter cup of coffee, then to the 10th and Locust St Lindenwald Highspeed Line station for a lift over the Ben Franklin Bridge to Camden, NJ where we will follow the Google Maps bike route suggestions with modifications by the leader as seen fit to Fort Mot NJ State Park. We need to make the 12:30 pm ferry departure, so no dilly dalling, 12 mph pace but still 10 mile hour average. The ride back up the Pennsylvania side will be more relaxed since we can be cycling until the sun sets. With maybe a half hour or an hour on the Delaware Fort island, a food break in Delaware City, the 42 mile return will get us back to our start location before 7 PM. The Ferry Fee is $ 12.00 . Pack a lunch or pay as you eat. Rain one hour before start, cancels. Cue sheets will not be available.
