Once again, we will offer 3 routes to choose from, each with their owned timed hill segments. Cyclists with the fastest overall segment time (per route) will win some sweet SWAG (to be announced & distributed post-ride)!
Whether you choose the 25, 50 or 80 mile route, you will be sure to experience some of the most beautiful roads NJ has to offer - from the flats of the Great Swamp, to the rolling hills of the surrounding farmland and of course the CLIMBS!
Please note, routes may be revised up to & including the day of the event (sometimes road closures happen). We get it, you want to be prepared, so we will do our best to keep you as up to date as possible!
