This is THE premier cycling event in scenic Bucks County. Held each year on a beautiful Sunday with the gorgeous fall colors shouting out, the CBR, as our members call it, is our best event ever.You have five great routes to choose from -- the family-friendly 20 and 30 mile routes (both use the towpath along the Delaware river, which is a fine-cinder and hardpacked dirt trail, for part of the ride), or the hillier 33, 50 or 63 mile ones (all on paved roads) -- plus plenty of great food. Travel through up to six historic covered bridges.Fatter tired bikes work best on the cinder-based paths for the 20 and 30 mile routes, which visit one or two bridges. The rides conclude with a Grande Finale Picnic.Rides start and end at Tinicum Park, along the shores of the Delaware River. Join 2000 riders from all over the northeastern United States and ride through some of the most beautiful areas in this part of the world.

Another loop out toward the old Peacock and back will finish the ride at 26.1 miles (sounds like a marathon run).

Autumn Riding

 

Cold.

The temperature is finally dropping, and that means cold hands; time to dig out gloves. You know yourself and what you need to protect; perhaps it is your ears or your toes; think about some earmuffs, skullcap or thicker socks. Think layers. You may start off at one temperature and finish at another!


Dark. The sun is coming up later and setting a lot earlier now visibility is not as good as it was a few weeks ago.Time to make sure that lights work, have fresh batteries, and are not obstructed by dirt. Check with your local bike shop to find out what you need; also consider adding additional reflective tape to surfaces on your bike.

Speaking of reflective, you also need reflective and fluorescent clothing: just wearing white or light colored clothes will not cut it, especially in autumn when the light is flatter. The fluorescence will pick up existing ambient light, and reflective strips will make you visible in car headlights. You can get bike-specific reflective/fluorescent clothing and enjoy wind-breaker and rain shielding properties, or grab a general hi-viz vest.

Weather. Autumn equals unpredictable. Keep an eye on the forecast for swings in temperature and the possibility of storms. They say there is no bad weather–only bad clothing. Best advice? A little preparation goes a long way!

Road Conditions. Falling leaves are beautiful and who isn’t drawn to a pile of leaves? But before you pedal through that pile, be aware that there could be a surprise under it–a pothole, a stick, an old tire, etc. Leaves also reduce your traction so be careful when cornering on a leaf-strewn road or path.

Be safe and be seen!

Diana Davis:

I LOVE riding in Hunterdon County! The plateau in Kingwood to the rolling hills in Readington. Sometimes a challenge, but always beautiful scenery!

Kurt Grabfelder:

I appreciate being a club member because it makes it much easier to get riders together for a group ride.  Riding with a group is safer and, I think, it brings out the best effort in you.  I like associating with like minded people who are interested in biking, fitness and nutrition.
