Elevator Riders RC Special 2012 Club Members Ride

21 Sep 2012 1:07 PM | Anonymous

The Elevator Riders RC members and guests, rolled thru New Jersey on Friday September 14th 2012. Club members from Illinois, Virginia, Nebraska, New York, Massachusetts, and New Jersey were to attend this first ever Club ride. Perfect weather, sunshine and blue sky's for our entire days ride were on hand.




Our tour started at the Atlantic City Convention Center, where for the last four days we all experienced the greatest elevator show on earth. There were plenty of friends of the club that stopped by at the start to wish us a great time on the ride. After all the pictures, and well wishes, we were off riding down the coast line of New Jersey. 




Cape May was our first stop. Teeming with visitors, Cape May was exactly what we pictured a New Jersey sea shore town to be. We had some time to enjoy the Cape May point, lighthouse, beach, and another picturesque town. 




Our second stop included lunch at a small local restaurant halfway up the Delaware Bay near Bridgeton, NJ. Some very hungry bikers hit the front door of this local stop. We were all treated to crab sandwiches and clam chowder for lunch. It was the perfect place to sample the fine local food.




After our crab lunch we had some time to enjoy the company of our fellow riders, and another picturesque New Jersey town. We all hopped on our bikes and rode north up the Delaware River just south of Philadelphia, PA. We all stopped for gas and and brief rest before we made our turn and headed east towards Malaga, NJ. This area of New Jersey had to be where the Jersey cow got its name. From there we had a straight shot down route 40 to the finish, at the Atlantic City Convention Center.




Friday was a full day, and when we all come back, we will definitely tour more of the scenic byways of New Jersey. Atlantic City is understandably an adult playground, and a nice place to spend a weekend with friends.




The club's ride thru New Jersey was an exciting and fun adventure. We all made friendships that will last a lifetime. Special Thanks to Ride Captain PJ and the other club members for the well organized and beautiful tour of New Jersey. We all look forward to next years Elevator Riders RC club members ride in Tampa, Florida.
