Registration Underway for Tour de Pines in October
Jul 31, 2014 05:39PM
The 2014 Tour de Pines bicycle expedition rides through New Jersey from October 1 to 5, beginning in Leeds Point, continuing by Bass River to the mysterious Bridge to Nowhere and down Carranza Road—all the while passing beside farm fields, cranberry bogs and the New Jersey coast. The event consists of five consecutive single-day bicycle tours of the New Jersey Pinelands, a United States Biosphere Reserve and the country’s first National Reserve. Proceeds benefit the Pinelands Preservation Alliance (PPA), a nonprofit organization that has worked to protect the New Jersey Pinelands since 1989.
Each day of the non-competitive, unsupported tour begins and ends at the same location and averages 40 to 55 miles at speeds of 11 to 13 mph. Participants can ride any and all days. The tenth year of the Tour de Pines will be celebrated with special events, including a post-ride party, October 5, and scavenger hunts with prizes.
Cost: $25 for PPA members and $35 for non-members (flat fee includes any and all days). For more information or to register, call 609-859-8860 or visit PinelandsAlliance.org.
