On Sun Aug 18, experience a part of New Jersey with more ups and downs than a Bruce Springsteen ballad. On a bike.
Join hundreds of area cyclists at the Ramapo Rally. The annual BTCNJ (Bicycle Touring Club of North Jersey) event offers rides for everyone from the infrequent cyclist to the committed road warrior with routes of 12, 25, 50, 62, 100 and 125 miles. Tree shaded country roads, gated estates, lakes and farmland unfold before the riders. The rally starts at Campgaw Ski Area, Mahwah, NJ.
Seasoned cyclists attack the hills in the Highland area of New Jersey in groups escorted by experienced ride leaders, or venture out on their own following detailed cue sheets and road markings.
Novice riders can participate in the 12 or 25 mile rides. Six well-stocked rest stops along each route provide cyclists with nourishment and comfort facilities. SAG wagons provide assistance to riders with mechanical or physical problems. At the end of the ride, participants return to the start site for a light meal.
Sponsors will set up tents and tables to display their products or services and certified bike technicians will be available at the start site and rest stops for last-minute or emergency repairs.
