BCP Peter Odell Memorial Ride New Hope to Brooklyn

4 years 4 days ago #2904 by LINDA McGRANE
Good Evening, Friends,

The annual Peter Odell Memorial Ride to Brooklyn will take place on Sunday, September 2. (It's always on the Sunday of Labor Day Weekend.)

Registration for the Odell Ride closes on August 15.

Event details and Registration are available on BCP's website, at: phillybikeclub.org/bcpdo/odell

The creator of this unforgettable adventure ride, the late Peter Odell, had degrees in both history and geography, and this ride is jam-packed with both, as well as spectacular scenery.

The scenery runs the gamut from horse farm country in Hunterdon County, to crossing the Hudson River from Hoboken to Manhattan on a ferry, then, the Hudson River Greenway to the Brooklyn Bridge.

There are two starting locations - 30th Street Station in Philadelphia, and New Hope.

There are four distance options - 130, 90, 75, and 50 miles.

The "Finish" is the Nu Hotel in Brooklyn Heights, where riders have access to showers and changing rooms.

Enjoy dinner in Brooklyn Heights (many restaurants from which to choose), then return via motor coaches. (Your bikes will be brought back on moving vans.)

Again, please visit phillybikeclub.org/bcpdo/odell for event details and Registration.

Thank you, and take care.

This is an unbelievable ride. Read the ride description. I did it 5-6 years ago and it still remains one of my best ride memories. From New Hope (CVS opps Wawa) it is about 90 miles to Brooklyn. The first 70 mi are rural and with the exception of one short high traffic section the route is amazing how it weaves it's way to the Brooklyn Bridge. Do the ride now before it no longer exists. Fun and few hills.
