2018 Calendar of Events

April 14th - Batsto 200k - Egg Harbor Township, NJ

For the second consecutive year we will open our season with a South Jersey 200k.  This flat brevet was much enjoyed by the twenty-six finishers in 2017 despite some occasional rainfall.   Once again the Lower Bank Tavern will host the start / finish and the post-ride lunch. 

April 28th - Cranbury 200k - Cranbury, NJ

This classic tour of the Jersey Shore is our largest-attended event of the year. Held in late April in the hope of mild temperatures and sunny skies, the mostly flat route visits many of the popular shore areas before the big crowds arrive.   Sixty-two riders reached the finish last year.  Once again we will use the Italian Touch Restaurant to host the finish line and offer free Pizza and Beer. 

May 12th - Princeton 300k - Princeton, NJ

Prepare for some hilly terrain with this Classic route which dates back to the beginning of New Jersey Randonneurs.   There are some big climbs en-route to the northern regions of the state,  the most notable being Jenny Jump Mountain near Hope, NJ.   This was last held in 2016, with twenty-eight riders reaching the finish.  

May 19th - Jersey Devil 300k - Hammonton, NJ

This event was newly introduced last year and was a smashing success. Thirty-six riders enjoyed every mile of the flat South Jersey route.  The start and finish were hosted by the Econo-Lodge, with pizza and beer offered at the finish.  There were some fast times posted, with all starters finishing successfully.  

June 2nd - Wildwood 400k - East Windsor, NJ

Time for more shore riding with this route, which was used for the first time last year.   All twenty-six starters would successfully find their way around the flat route to reach the finish despite some rainfall early on.  The Days Inn is our host for the event.   

June 30th - Princeton 600k - Princeton, NJ

For the third year in a row we will hold this challenging two-loop 600K, with a re-designed second loop.  The first loop is 217 miles, venturing into the hills of Pennsylvania.  Upon return to the Clarion Hotel for some food and sleep, riders will undertake a second, 156-mile flat loop into the Pinelands region to Tuckerton Seaport.  There is a 25-rider limit. Registration opens in May.   

July 21st - New Jersey Arrow -  24 Hour Team Event

We bring back this team event which was held once before in 2016.  July is a fine time of year for a 24-hour point-to-point brevet.  Teams design their own route, starting anywhere they choose.  All teams will converge at 22 hours in Hillsborough, NJ, for breakfast.   A 14-mile final ride to Pete's Bike Shop in Flemington, NJ, will conclude the event with food, music, and prizes.   

More detailed information on the above events is available on the Events page of this web-site.

We look forward to seeing you!
