You certainly will not regret waking up early Saturday morning and drive South/West to the starting point. It worth it!!

As per BTCNJ ride classification guideline, this is a "Hilly" ride. Please be realistic and responsible while assessing your ability to attend this ride. If you graduated successfully from Ralph Pantuso's academy of The Annual Arden Valley Hill Festival, then, you are prepared. I am committed to lead a "safety first" ride, ride together as a group, and we wait on top of each climb for everybody! However, you must be able to maintain steady B pace on the flat, and climb at your on pace. Also, please bring some energy bars and snacks, as lunch is not scheduled before the 37 mile mark.
