Can you believe a near totally flat 100-mile ride? Here it is, with the added adventure of a ferry ride to Conners/Highland, New Jersey. Once in New Jersey, the ride covers a fast loop through the northern Pine Barrens. This ride will be very fast with only a brief stop around its midpoint. The route is fast and flat, the only negative being shore traffic. Possible on a fixed gear bike as well as an upper level B ride, but only the exceptional need apply.
Ferry service access from Manhattan, check for updates. The SeaStreak ferry leaves 34th Street on the East River and Wall Street (Pier 11) and arrives in Connor's Highland, NJ. As of 8/2007, the round-trip fare is $33 plus $6 for the bike. While a bit pricey, its a very, very nice ferry ride, much better than NY Waterway.
