honest question. if the TNJT consists of legal albeit unpaved roads. personally i am relying on those that strung the pieces together on this point. these same roads that may have washed out in areas (i have done parts of it and witnessed myself) and may have mud holes. and yet are not closed. There was no harm intended by those posting their experience on same road.

guess it was more a comment than question.

PB300 or 500. Participants may and have posted pictures of 'fun spots' on adv. Aren't your roads all legal? Guess there is a question.

The greenies or anybody else can take any picture on this site or other sites that may even be of someone on their own property and use it against us. If you ride off road support a local club that actively looks out for your interest by becoming a member.

On my 2 day trip I probably crossed 100+ 2-track mudholes, both wet and dry. 2 track as in created by Jeeps, complete with broken 3" recovery strapping lying about.

Whatever!

I ended up here based on a recommendation from Bikehigh when I asked about a good route from Brooklyn, NY to Washington DC. Here's the tough part though, I need to get to DC in one day. That means catching the either the 4:15 or 7:45 ferry in Cape May and still having a couple hours to get to DC from there.

Any chance I could ride a small section of the TNJT and still make it to Cape May for the ferry? I don't mind pre-sunrise from Brooklyn. If so, what section would you guys suggest?

Thanks for the help!

By the way, if anyone is up for this type of ride on this Sunday (20th), more the merrier.

NYC to DC is ~4 hour trip w/ no traffic on the slab, but I don't think there are many options to head South through NJ w/o taking the NJT or the GSP and still make decent time.

Do you have to take the ferry? It seems out of the way to go to DC, and if you're going to be on the NJT anyway, just go across the Delaware Memorial Bridge and keep going. If you have some time to kill, I'm sure you can cut down through DE/MD (avoiding congestion around Baltimore) and go through Annapolis before hitting DC.

Good point, I don't have to take the ferry. But it would be cool to do some section(s) of the TNJT before taking slab the rest of the way. The dirt sections might be more suitable for my setup (DR650 loaded up) than the sand anyways, which it seems is mostly south of 195.

So maybe I could catch some dirt sections closer to NYC and then take slab from there. I do need to end up in DC that night. Any section suggestions that fit this would be great!

Thanks.

I would say, the TNJT, being a series of loops, is not something to try and take on to, get from point A to point B.

I think I better choice for you would just be to spend some time on google maps and/or google earth, and see where you can hop on some dirt/sand roads, and plot a course as far south as they can take you...and then get back on your pavement route.

Whoops! My bad... I saw TNJT and thought The NJ Turnpike. I should've known better...

(In my defense, I may have thought I was replying to a post in the NYC Commuter thread...)

i think if you want to ride some woods and not waste a lot of your time going across the ferry and threw Delaware the best way might be taking the gsp down to lacey twp or maybe father south to lbi and then taking a lot of dirt to atco area and then paved roads up to 295 maybe in Bellmawr.
kind of like this. you can do more dirt then google drew out but you get the idea.
https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=N...=w&mra=ls&z=11

I went from around bellmarw to lbi using dirt from atsion lake up to ware the parkway and 72 cross. it took a little more then 1 1/2 hours. you could do some more exploring along the way and add more time as that was running strait threw.
if you deside to go this way let me know what time you plan on getting to lacey or lbi, I could meet you there and run the wood with you.

Thanks for the suggestion, this sounds like fun and feasible for a good day of riding. Plus riding with someone that knows the trail would be awesome, I'll send you a PM.

How much of it can be done starting at High Point before the Big GS won't make it
