Here are some pictures from the first riding event of the Polar Bear Grand Tour for the 2007-2008 season.

This was the first non-rainy day for awhile. Winds were apparent and temperatures were in the high 50s.

My group encountered a very bad accident on the Garden State Parkway on the way down to Cape May. I believe it was just before the Toms River toll plaza. Traffic was halted in both directions of the Parkway while rescue helicopters landed and transported the injured. We were within 100 yards of the accident and many people got out of their cars and off their motorcycles to observe. I took a few pictures.

There were a few riders in costume today. Halloween is coming.

The accident involved several cars. A rescue helicopter was just on the other side of the trees parked in the middle of the northbound lanes. A second helicopter was circling and shortly was to land just ahead of this scene in the middle of the southbound lanes.
