Micro-Tour 5 was a 37 Mile ride from New York City to Camp Glen Gray,
Camp Glen Gray is an overnight campground nestled in the Ramapo Mountains near Mahwah, New Jersey. Open year round, the camp offers a wide selection of cabins, lean-tos and tent sites. Its large capacity cabins and campsites are particularly attractive for scouts and other youth groups. While camping in the Glen, you can hike trails with scenic overlooks, fish in Lake Vreeland, or simply enjoy nature. All this less than an hour’s drive from New York City, West Point and many other New York area attractions.
The group left from lower Manhattan at 7am on August 25th, 2018, picked up some people along the way on the Hudson River Greenway, and motored our was to the George Washington Bridge.
The first section of the ride is in commercial northern New Jersey, so there are alot of cars and traffic lights
The best part of the ride is going through the Saddle River Park, which is 5 milkes or so of protected bike paths along the Saddle River
After the park, the group has their next break in Ridgewood, NJ for lunch
After stopping in Wyckoff, New Jersey for final meal provisions, we arrived at Camp Glen Gray at around 1:30pm
Soon, a fire was started and dinner prep began
The site has platform tent spots, an great open field, and a 16 person lean-to. Many people didnt brings tents
Surprisingly, most of the crew woke up early to break camp. The prospect of a 37 mile ride back seemed to open the possibility that if the group left, they could have most of the day back in NYC.
