Liberty Epic route revisions

The ride now will feature a triumphant (to us) entrance to Philadelphia over the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, quick photo op option at Liberty Bell (or save it for after dinner when it's dark out and the Bell is lit) followed by dinner at Hamifgash restaurant which we need to reach by about 7PM.
Lunch in Deal, NJ 52 miles out from the start we should reach by noon. Our choices include Jerusalem Pizza of Deal and The Chocolate Soda (dairy luncheonette cuisine).

The route to lunch from Newark will use the Henry Hudson Rail trail and more time on Ocean Ave. than last years ride to Cherry Hill. The route from Deal to Philadelphia will take us down the rest of the North Jersey coast into Bay Head then swing west through a pleasant neighborhood, through the Pine Barrens to Lakewood (whose bus terminal is the next bailout point after we leave NJ Transit's North Jersey Coast line behind) and beyond.
