*In tribute to the Northern European Spring Classics join us for the annual Hell of Hunterdon, an 82 mile Belgian themed ride in Hunterdon County, NJ.
The challenging course features 19 sections of dirt, gravel, and hardscrabble roads (covering approximately 15% of the course) as you wind your way through scenic farmland and country towns in New Jersey’s Sourlands. Total elevation gain is ca 5700 feet. The route is perfectly suitable for standard Road Bikes with Road Tires; tires wider than 23mm are suggested. Cyclocross bikes are welcome, but certainly not required, as most of the ride is on paved roads. It is the ideal preparation for those who plan to go to the Tour of the Battenkill on April 18th & 19th.
Following the ride, please join us for the festivities (food, beer, and door prizes) at the Elks Lodge in Blawenburg.
