Good news for non-members! Your Ramapo Rally registration fee also includes a special membership to BTCNJ that starts on August 1st. You will be able to access our ride schedule and find other member-specific information until November 1, 2014. If you decide you would like to join for the entire year and are not already a member (this offer is valid for new members only), you will be able to do so during your trial membership or after your trial membership expires.

You can ride on your own or join escorted rides, for all ride levels, which will leave at predetermined times on Rally morning.

Registered riders can pick up cue sheets at check-in, and we’ll have large-format maps of all routes posted nearby, with knowledgeable advisers to answer questions. Links to GPX files will be available on www.ramaporally.com shortly before the Rally, and we’ll email you with the user ID and password for download.

12- and 25-mile routes
These shorter routes are more family friendly and are ideal for less experienced riders or those with young children. They meander through the suburban Bergen County towns of Mahwah, Ramsey, Allendale, and Franklin Lakes. The 12-miler is fairly flat, through quiet, tree-shaded streets, with a bit of climbing to return to the start site. The 25-miler includes more rolling climbs and sections on local through roads.

50-mile route
This route has flat sections and rolling hills.

62-mile and 100-mile routes
Both the rolling to moderately hilly 62-  and 100-mile routes head southwest through the Splitrock Reservoir area as well as into the greenery along miles of the Black River Wildlife Management Area with the turn-around for the century (100) in Chester NJ.

125-mile route
For those stronger riders looking for a challenge, we are offering a 25-mile extremely hilly extension to the century for a double metric (125) — a climb up Schooley’s Mountain - along the ridge - and a rewarding downhill.
