    Any other North Jersey riders?

    Hey guys; pretty new to the forum. Any body ride north jersey/ny on a regular basis? I usually launch out of Carteret, NJ which is free. It's a nice launch because it gives you easy access to raritan bay as well as passaic/hackensack rivers and NYC. I went for a ride today up Arthur Kill through Newark Bay up the Hackensack; rough ride! Very windy today and storms were moving through. Newark Bay was the choppiest I've ever seen it. If anyone rides in this area let me know! Would like to ride with someone.

    I always wanted to ride up there because I live in bridgewater also, but I can't get over how dirty the water is. Once I found out how many superfund sites lined the raritain river it put me off. It's the 16th dirtiest river in the US. Arthur Kill and chemical coast can't be much better either. Maybe one day I suck it up and launch at liberty state park and take a cruise around the city.

    I launch from below the George Washington bridge at the picnic area in englewood cliffs beside the palisades parkway and ride north to the tappanzee. The water is much cleaner north of the gwb and becomes fresh water at the tappanzee.

    Arthur Kill doesn't bother me that much. Water seems relatively clean despite the abundance of container traffic and plants along the coast. I rode the Passaic river once and I don't think I will ever go there again. It was so stagnant and nasty; there was garbage floating EVERYWHERE I turned around before I got to Newark. If I sucked something up into my intake I wasn't about to jump off into that water to fish it out!!!
