Finally nice here today, rode the old 900SS to Target Rock National Wildlife Refuge. I both timed and measured the run as I've got some buds from my old job as well as member here @Ruina
joining me Saturday. This way everyone can plan accordingly. We'll have a mix of 900SS, CBR600, R6 and EX500.
18 miles as the crow flies....but 40 using selected, twisty, obscure, back road routes complete with elevation changes and various, multiple harbor/water views. On the way a surprise..a very special, obscure *pizza shop* right on the water! Around 90 minutes per way, depending on traffic and lunch break. Not to be discounted, its a physical workout, even at a semi-relaxing pace.
Once at the Refuge, a 1/4 mile trail hike/walk to beach and overlooks on Huntington Bay, if so inclined.
For history buffs...the actual "Target Rock", a giant boulder in the bay, was actually used as a target by British warships during the Revolutionary War period. http://nynjctbotany.org/lgtofc/targetrk.html
