ride to Cuddebackville, NY to cheer on "the Badger"

Hey there my long-lost Trumpet-loving comrades,

Just wanted to post up a little last-minute ride opportunity that's happening tomorrow, bright and early. My boyfriend Drue and his partner have been working on a film project called "The Badger: Made in Trenton", which documents the highs and lows of a particular Royal Enfield rat bike, built by Leon Stanley, that's been kitted out for the purpose of breaking speed records and what not. Tomorrow's is the last of three races "the Badger" has pledged to participate in, and we're leading a little ride to Cuddebackville, NY to cheer it on. It's a flat track race, which should be a hell of a lot of fun to watch.

Meetup is at 7:30am at the Byram Diner on U.S. 26 in Stanhope, NJ. Kickstands up at 8. We plan to get to the grounds by 10. Entrance fee for spectators should be around $12.

Here's a little taste of the film:
Some info on the races: http://www.oaklandvalleyspeedway.com/
And a link to the diner location: http://goo.gl/maps/mLX6M

If you can't make the ride, feel free to join us there! Races start at 11am at Oakland Valley Speedway, 305 Oakland Valley Road, Cuddebackville, NY.

Cheers!
Heather

I haven't seen Harriman or Bear since Sandy so Saturday I will leave UWS about 9 if anyone's interested; prob do PIP to Bear then 7 Lakes to Sloatsburg.

Hmmm...I haven't ridden up in that area since the ride to Rhinebeck meet. I'll let you know for sure by tomorrow.

I went thru there yesterday. Took 106 from 17 across the park and out the Gate Hill Road entrance to the PIP. All good. No big trees or branches in the road. Leaves are gone so you can see around some corners better than you can in the summer. Lake Welch, Tirarota, and Arden Valley Road are probably closed.

Have fun!

The "Earth" without "art" is just... "Eh"

Jersey Gents, save the toll and I'll meet you at Alpine Lookout north of Exit 2. There is a cafe there if you want to get coffee. 9:30 there?

Directionally impaired guy here. Is that Exit 2 off the palisades parkway? the name of the cafe would be even better

Yep, on the northbound side, it is its own exit off PIP before exit 3; not sure the cafe has a name:
