Tour the beautiful rural Sourlands region of central NJ. There will be a variety of flat routes and hilly longer routes. Our flat route is 15 miles, slightly hilly 30 miles, moderately hilly 50 miles, and hilly 65 miles. Families are welcome and can picnic and bike the roads within Skillman Park one-quarter mile from the start. Pre-registration is highly recommended by May 26 (online registration will close June 3) and guarantees a quicker check-in, bike cap, and lower registration fee.
