Down From The Hill

Posted on: August 22, 2009

My last few saturday afternoons have been spent riding through the NJ part of the Palisades Interstate Parkway. For a wannabe like me, this route can be a challenge due to some steep hills, some faux plateaus and crumbling asphalt roads.

But we trudge on.   And no trudge is more rewarding than the one that leads you to the top of that hill.  As we climb, we have the beautiful scenery of the hudson river and the city. Here’s a pretty photo I took on a clear afternoon as the rays of the sun set against old new york buildings.

On our way back down from the hill via Route 9W, we came across this tavern called, what else….The Bicycle Club.

To our pleasant surprise, Saturday night in the Bicycle Club is steak and ribs night! Prime rib steak for as low as $19.  Check out what we had.

As you can see, whatever was burned when we climbed the hill was easily gained back in this decadent meal.  All worth it…I’m a happy camper!

Well climbing that hill became but a memory after eating all that naughty food.

Lala: You should try the gorgonzola mashed potatoes and try the garlic one too. Were both very good.

Twinpopsis: The crab meat was very sweet! Was very rich though. I had to doggie bag it.
