Due to Covid-19 and recognizing the great need to raise funds to sustain Anchor House programming, a Virtual Ride/Walk will be held for this year. We can be physically distant but emotionally connected.

The 2020 Anchor House Ride for Runaways will kickoff on July 11, 2020 and continue until
August 22, 2020. We encourage you to Register and Sign-up for our
Virtual Rides or
Walk/Run Fundraising Campaigns.

Register for one of the events or donate to a participant on

The Ride for New Beginnings is an annual, fully supported, bicycle ride to raise critical funds for the children and youth served by Ocean's Harbor House. This year, the route covers 184 miles over three days, through much of South Jersey. We invite you to join us on this year’s journey as a cyclist, part of our support team or a sponsor. More info at the Ride for New Beginnings Web Page. September 12, 2020

The Sourland Conservancy will hold its ninth annual Sourland Spectacular bicycle event in a modified format from Saturday, September 5 through Sunday, September 13, 2020.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Sourland Spectacular will be much different this year.  We want to provide an opportunity for cyclists to enjoy a September ride through the gorgeous Sourland Mountain region, but we want to take every precaution to keep everyone safe and healthy.   

Here are the key points:

    Rather than gather all together on a single day, we will expand the event out over nine days.

    We will provide very basic services only.  We will mark the routes and provide print-your-own cue sheets (PDF), and GPS files.  We will set up a safe water station along the route, and we will have a port-a-potty there.

    We will not be providing lunch, snacks, coffee, SAG services, etc.

    Because we are providing less, and because some riders may be experiencing financial distress, we are going with a donate-what-you-can model for payment.

    WE WILL HAVE SWAG!  We will send a workout shirt to anyone who donates $60 or more.

    Registration and liability waivers will be handled online only.

These are difficult times for the Sourland Conservancy.  Our other major annual fundraiser, the Sourland Mountain Festival, had to be canceled because of the virus.   We hope you will be able to ride one of our courses this September, and that you will be as generous as you can be in support of our efforts to protect the Sourlands.
