Arrow 2UP Couple Cruise (to New Hope, PA)

https://www.facebook.com/events/429309370424293/

(You don't need to be a couple, just bring a passenger if you can!)

Join us from Shut Up and Ride! on a more relaxing note (Talking about the speeds, not the day with your significant other) as we cruise over to New Hope in Pennsylvania.

New Hope is a very beautiful and small town on the Delaware River, it has a lot to offer from many delicious restaurants to unique boutiques to brew pubs to a hand blown glass shop to two "adult" shops (think custom made leather corsets).

With so much to offer, and the romantic scenery New Hope is the perfect destination for a 2UP Couple Cruise. Everyone should (but it is not required) bring a date/passenger/significant other.

````````````````````````````````````````````````
This is the cruise on google maps: http://goo.gl/maps/mR5I

There is 2 pick up locations to meet in the morning.

First one being Wawa (Corner RT18 & Maple rd, Old Bridge, NJ) at 9:30am, kick stands up at 9:45am.

Next will be pick up stop #2 at the La Quinta Inn (60 Cottontail Rd, Somerset, NJ) right of exit #12 off 287. Meet up at 10am, kick stands up at 10:30am.

We will then take scenic/twisty back roads up through round valley to Chester township, we will stop for a quick stretch (5 mins) then make our way down to Frenchtown via County Road 513 aka RT24 (twisty & scenic) with a detour in the middle over to Round Valley, New Hope is 25 minutes south of Frenchtown.

While in New Hope we can all grab something to eat, walk around, do a little shopping, and feed the ducks before hoping on the bikes and heading back home.

````````````````````````````````````````````````

Re: 2UP Couple Cruise (to New Hope, PA)

That would be a cool ride to go on, but any kind of distance riding while 2UP is just no fun at all.

I tried to get one together a few years ago on here didn't turn out well for me, I did a smaller local one that went to pier village a few weeks ago and we all had a blast.

Roughly ~105-115 miles round trip, like ~60 miles there and ~50 miles back.

If the group decides it's too much/too short we can always alter the route on the fly.

I'm doing two meet up spots. One being Old Bridge, the town I'm from. The second is exit 12 off 287. I believe it's Somerset.

I think the Somerset spot is closer, you can type your address into the google maps from the first post and see.

Re: 2UP Couple Cruise (to New Hope, PA)

Yea, the perfect bike. I wish the handlebars would be about 5 inches higher and more back. Then it would be a full blown tourer. But its deffinately better then the replica racers you fellas ride. ;-)

These 750s are so nimble though!!
