A Memorial Day bike camping trip from Philly to Wharton State Park to the Jersey shore.
On Memorial Day weekend, what better to do than ride bikes TO the beach with friends! Two rad ladies to join me, Amanda (who writes all about her travels!)- it was her first time bike camping, and she was amazing - and Arianna, who I met because she organized fun, social rides to breweries last summer!
Here's the route we took. There are a variety of routes from Philly to the beach, including some that are shorter than this, but I tend to go for bike paths, scenery, and good food rather than speed.
My favorite stretches of this route:
1. Riding by the Atsion Racetrack. feel like your racing the race cars on your bike
2. 8 miles of Reading Street - a quiet tree covered street with very few cars. With a long stretch on this quiet street, you can really get into
3. The Linwood Bike Path. You can take an alternative route that takes you to the shore that enters through Atlantic City. But this, often tree lined car-less --- mile path
