Sunday, August 21, 2016.
Thank you for joining us, and see you next year!
BTCNJ’s (Bicycle Touring Club of North Jersey) Annual Ramapo Rally is the premier club-sponsored bicycling event in northern New Jersey. In 2014, about 1,400 riders and volunteers participated in our annual signature event.
The Rally starts and finishes at the Campgaw Mountain Reservation in Mahwah, NJ, a beautiful part of the Bergen County parks system.
Our six routes range from one of the most challenging (hilliest and longest) routes of any area club rally of 125 miles, all the way down to a 12-mile route suitable for families and novice riders – and everything in between. Well-stocked rest stops along the way offer nourishment, sanitary facilities, and even mechanical support. Roving SAG wagons provide help to riders with problems. At the end of the ride, participants return to the start site for a hot/grilled lunch, massage, and the opportunity to browse and shop the Rally Marketplace for cycling-related merchandise and information from our sponsors.
A significant portion of the proceeds from the Rally is given back to the community, supporting the local community charities and volunteer organizations.
