Join Team Dave for a beautiful ride down the Jersey Shore, starting and ending at the ferry terminal in Highlands, N.J., with lunch in Asbury Park. It’s a mostly flat (but beautiful) 73-mile loop with some busy beachfront roads but also lots of country roads and around 25 miles of paved rail trail. The route is long but not particularly challenging, and there are options to exit the ride and return by train after 27 and 59 miles.
Either ride the Seastreak Ferry with us from Manhattan ($57 round-trip, including bike fee) or meet in Highlands. Team Dave training rides are for experienced riders and don’t have formal leads or sweeps, so all riders need a paid Ride with GPS account for turn-by-turn guidance. We ride at a pace of around 15 mph (level C/C+), we take rest stops every 15-20 miles, and we regroup occasionally.
