Routes

6 Different Rides: 12 miles, 25 miles, 50 miles, 62 miles, 100 miles, and 125 miles

The Rally routes were revised by our Rally team. We tweaked them a little while still keeping them safe and scenic. There will be scheduled led group rides for the 12-mile and 25-mile routes.  The 100-, 125-, 62-, and 50-mile routes will have BTCNJ marshals riding the routes and assisting participants.  All routes are marked with arrows and signs. Due to changes in road conditions, road construction, or closures, etc, last-minute changes may be needed to some of the routes. Make sure that you have to latest cue sheets and GPS files.

Check back at this site periodically for additional information such as route information, ride schedules, and GPS files. The GPS files will be available 1 week before the event.
