All riders will begin at Hazlet Train Station and continue along the water to Sandy Hook, where we will enjoy brunch on the beach and participate in a donation drive (check out the ” collection project” tab for more info). From there, riders have the choice to ride back to Hazlet Train Station, take the Ferry into NYC, or ride through Sea Bright and Rumson to the Red Bank Train Station.
