Otto Kaufman Community Center: 365 Skillman Road, Skillman, United States
Tour the Sourlands region in beautiful rural 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. The 65-mile route will include Strava segments. Families are welcome and can play on open fields, picnic and bike the roads within Skillman Park less than one-quarter mile from the start. Registration by May 11 is highly recommended and guarantees a quicker check-in, bike cap, and lower registration fee. A donation from the Event proceeds will be given to the Sourland Conservancy and to bike-related charities.
REGISTRATION FEES are as follows:
Register by May 11- $40 (Bike cap included.)
Register by June 1, $50 (Bike cap included.)
“Day of” registration will be available only if we do not yet have 650 registrants. The bike caps will be available at $10.
For those under 17 years of age, registration is $20.
Notes: You can create a team or sign up with a team when your register online. Some teams will choose to have a password so you will need to contact the team leader first.
Unfortunately, active.com website for registration has posted magazine offers and offer to join active.com just before you complete your registration. Please skip over these, they have NOTHING to do with your registration.
ALL registrants are welcome to enjoy our rest stop snacks, a post-ride lunch, including pizza, barbecue, and vegetarian choices. You can visit with on-site bike vendors after the ride. Additionally, a DJ will provide music from 11 AM to 3 PM outdoors at the Otto Kaufman Community Center (OKCC).
DOOR PRIZES WILL BE AWARDED AND INCLUDE COMPLIMENTARY REGISTRATION FOR NEXT YEAR'S EVENT AND PFW MEMBERSHIPS FOR ONE YEAR. THE TOP THREE MALE AND FEMALE LEADERS IN THE STRAVA SEGMENTS WILL BE RECOGNIZED WITH BIKE SHOP GIFT CERTIFICATES. ADDITIONAL DETAILS WILL BE POSTED LATER ON THE PFW WEBSITE AND FACEBOOK PAGE
