Began in 1987 this is the 29th year for this ride! Despite the new name and start location, the basic route is much the same as the former Bridgeton Zoo Century but with many improvements and additions. Parking, registration and the ride begins at Green Branch Park, Pittsgrove, New Jersey. The route is mostly on the scenic rural roads of Salem, Cumberland and Gloucester Counties. The terrain is mostly flat but with just enough climbs to challenge the new rider and add interest for the experienced rider. Ride it fast or slow, the choice is yours. Along the way there are a few stores and delis on or near the route.
Start anytime between 8 am to 9:30 am and ride at your own pace. The first half has a 24 mile and a 49 mile route. The 49 mile route takes you north to Mullica Hill with some challenging hill climbs between miles 20 to 35. The second half has two route choices of 27 miles and 52 miles. The 52 mile route takes you through Alloway, Quinton and historic Greenwich. Combined with the first half this gives you a 76 or 101 mile option for the day. All routes bring you back to Green Branch Park where we will have fruit, baked goods, hot dogs and plenty of liquids waiting for you under a cool pavilion. We will have two water stops on each of the long routes and one on each of the short routes.
Cue sheets, painted route marks, sag wagon service and water/food stops are provided. In addition to food, the entry fee includes a give away item. In past years these have included light backpacks, sew-on patches, high quality water bottles, first aid kits, and tube patch kits. This year we are considering several new items. Fee for South Jersey Wheelmen members is $10.00 which includes the give away item. Club T-Shirts are available for purchase at the ride. Come out and enjoy!
Porta-potties or bathrooms are provided at main water stops.
