You can ride on your own or join up with friends or other riders on routes for all levels and abilities. There will be escorted rides lead by BTCNJ ride leaders for the 12- and 25-mile routes. The other routes will have BTCNJ marshals riding the routes and assisting participants. Check the Routes tab for additional information.

 Registered riders can pick up cue sheets at check-in, and we’ll have large-format maps of all routes posted nearby, with knowledgeable advisers to answer questions. Links to GPS files will be available on the Routes tab, 1 week before the Rally.  The final version of the Riders’ Guide to the 2018 Ramapo Rally is available.   Please take a look at this guide for updated and additional information.
