Just took a peak at the route .. traffic is going to suck going through Great Barrington and Stockbridge on route 7/23. This route goes through two of the worst traffic areas in southern Berkshire county. I am hoping to make the pre-ride (not sure yet) but I am going to research a possible alternative to avoid these areas (especially on July 4th) .. although it may be unavoidable ..

Here's the itinerary for the trip from Stroudsburg to Chicopee.

7:45am Rider Meeting in the parking lot of the Budget Inn in Stroudsburg PA

8am Kickstands up leaving the Budget Inn in Stroudsburg

9am Stop at the PA Welcome Center Rte 84 and Rte 209 just over the border from Port Jarvis NY. 10 minute break

9:10am Leave Welcome Center

10:15am Arrive at Kerhonkson Country Store 6532 Rt 55 Kerhonkson NY for Fuel Stop

10:45 am Leave Kerhonkson Country Store

11:30am Arrive at Xtra Mart in Red Hook NY

11:40am Leave Xtra Mart

12:40pm Arrive at McDonald's Rte 7 in Great Barrington MA

1:20pm Leave McDonald's

2:30pm Arrive at 756 Britton St Chicopee MA for cookout and post V2V gathering.

 

I am going to try to adhere to this timeline, if we do run late between some stops, we will cut the break time down to semi keep on schedule. If we are running earlier, we will extend the break time. Figures out we ride about 60-75 minutes with breaks to stretch and use restrooms and rehydrate.

BTW there is a bonus pack for the V2V. $10 gets you a T-shirt, Hat , Patch, and possibly a Pin, complements of Victory Motorcycles. (Pin availability is dependent on how far east they make it)

See me on the route, or at XC_Bubba's party, or pm me on the 5th and I will see what I can get from what's left.

Hey Matt!

I'm sure Arnold has already told you, but put us down for a "bonus pack" each please! The menu for the cookout at this point looks like grilled sausage, pepper n onions, tater salad, mac salad, possibly some bbq chicken, and other assorted "stuff" so bring your appetites!

:dp :wcm
