I am moving out of New York on the 31st so on Memorial Day I set out to take a one last spin through River Road in New Jersey.
The best time to cross the Brooklyn Bridge is before 8 am. I asked a tourist to take this photo of me.
New York in the early morning is beautiful.
Notice how empty it is.
This bridge will be packed with tourists later.
River Road is hard to describe. It takes an hour from Brooklyn to get there. Battling tourists, taxis and sometimes other cyclists. When you get there. It's all worth it!
Hard to believe that Manhattan is just on the other side of the river.
Today the roads were quiet.
Patches of sun poked through the limbs of trees.
This is everyones favorite climb on River Road. Mine included.
Not tan enough.
Coasting is fun don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
Early bird gets the worm. These suckers are just heading into Jersey.
Tailwind. Yes please.
Last time over this bridge. Looking forward to new roads.
