Newtown, PA To Newark


Newton, Pa., to Newark Penn Station


This is a cue sheet, not a map. The idea is to give you enough landmarks
that you should be able to find your way. If you’re off course, stop and ask
for directions. If you need help, wait for the van to show up or call one of
the cellphones. Mileage is cumulative from the start. Please check in with the
van at van stops even if you don’t need to refuel. Zero your cyclocomputer at
the start!
