Ride to the Firehouse Eatery in Rahway, NJ was all highway; RT209 to RT17 to NYS Thruway to GSP and back with a short stop at the Diner in Nanuet to meet with guys. The road was nice and smooth, no ice problems and the sky was all blue and not a cloud in sight.b

Ride to Hooters in Paramus, NJ was all back roads on RT202 from Nanuat Diner. This weeks ride was short compared to rides of past weeks. Actually, my ride from Ellenville to the meetup point at the Diner iin Nanuat was long than the Polar Bear Run. The roads were nice and clear of any ice and we appreciate the good work of the local DOTs. The return trip was all highway for as I trying to beat the predicted rain and ice pellets in the afternoon. Made home just as it started to rain. Hope the rest of the Ramapo MC guys made home before the rain.

The purpose of this site is to offer city riders opportunity to enjoy the fullrange of their bikes in an uncongested and bike friendly environment just miles outside the hustle of New York City.
As a city transplant that recently moved to upstate New York from Brooklyn, I fully appreciate the value of being able to ride my bike ( Kawasaki Concours and Honda Shadow ) without being run over by a yellow taxi or other large delivery vehicles. Wouldn't it be lovely to make a right or left turn without being blocked by 200 tourists trying to cross the street?
Bikers and bikes need space and the city is certainly not offering us any more space. So, I have put together some of the finest routes for nice weekend or day trips. Additionally, I also organize and lead rides to the Catskill
Mountain Region via http://motorcycle.meetup.com/36/ . Please check out the site and join me for unforgettable rides this spring, summer and fall.
No attitude please! Come with a Full Tank, let's roll and have fun!
