This may be your first chance to stretch your legs on a long ride after the cold winter months. Riders can choose routes of varying distances covering moderately hilly terrain in the areas west and north of Newark. Snacks will be available at the start and at well-stocked, indoor food stops which will help make this the ride one to remember.

All routes are loops which begin and end at the starting location, so you can do a single 23 kilometer (13 mile) loop or combine loops to get up to 167 kilometers (100 miles). You can decide how far you want to go after you have completed each loop. Easy to follow cue sheets and different color route markings will keep you on track no matter which route or routes you decide to follow.

This is a great way to start the season!
