However, be careful if you bicycle during peak commuter traffic. A Tour Guide for Cyclists Allamuchy Allegory Ride New Jersey Department of ransportation Allamuchy Allegory Ride Hope. Shades of Death. Tranquility. The unusual destination

names on this tour have inspired the name Allamuchy Allegory. You’ll begin with historic Hope on the horizon, after which you will have to prove yourself along Shades of Death, a mostly lonely road with towering trees bordered by steep hills. ou’ll achieve Tranquility at the final stopping point. The Allamuchy Allegory ride traverses scenic back roads in the rural woodlands of northern Warren and southern Sussex counties in the Skylands region of New Jersey. The trail offers many attractive landscapes and beckons you to stop for a moment to take in the magnificent views of rolling hillsides

dappled with quaint farmhouses and venerable red barns. Like a ride back through New Jersey history to a slower, simpler time, you’ll pass several inviting lakes and sleepy towns on tree-lined country roads. Here you’ll also find ample opportunities for quick refreshment before heading on your way. Traffic is generally light, especially early in the day; however, summer weekend traffic is heavier. The route is moderately hilly with some steep ascents peppered in, so attempting the entire 42-mile circuit is not recommended if you’re out of condition. However, there are a number of options for

cyclists to short-circuit the loop on local roads such as Routes 611 and 612 or Huntsville Road.
