Ride Description

Since I am still fairly new to the world of bikepacking, I am planning an overnight only. The route is about 90% gravel towpaths along the D&R Canal and the feeder between New Brunswick, NJ and Easton, PA (via Trenton, NJ). The ride will be easy as there is little to no elevation change.

Day 1 will be to cycle out stopping along the way at several points of interest.

Day 2 ride back!

I have scouted some good locations to stop at including some local eateries and a craft brewery. Over night I expect to camp somewhere in the Lehigh Valley. Right now it is impossible to tell what campsite operations will be, but camping is the plan.
