WELCOME TO THE SECOND ANNUAL FARMLAND RIDE!!!  This is a scenic ride through the rolling hills and picturesque farmland of Hunterdon County.  Choose from 3 great routes — an easy, slightly undulating 15-mile route, our easiest route with some moderate hills, good for the casual rider, a hillier, more challenging 30-mile route, suitable for intermediate riders, or the challenging 60-mile route, which includes hillier and steeper grades for the more experienced rider. Travel through the most scenic farmlands that Hunterdon County has to offer on paved roads.  The rides offer plenty of snacks and conclude with an awesome lunch.This bike ride event will bring together local, surrounding and far reaching communities to enjoy the fresh outdoors and view scenic farmlands with the camaraderie of friends and family. This ride is sponsored by the Flemington Jewish Community Center (“FJCC”).

Cycling in France, for all levels, families too! A presentation by Gary Kraut. Wednesday, Feb 13, 7:30 

Biking in France for all types of riders – A lecture by Paris-based travel writer, ride leader and Mercer County native Gary Kraut

France is one of the world’s top cycling destinations thanks to the many ways in which biking at all levels can be combined with visits to castles, vineyards, markets, and historical sights and monuments. The stunning natural landscapes, bike-friendly roads and culture, and fine meals at the end of the day make every ride memorable.

In this illustrated lecture, Gary will explain how to match your cycling level and travel rhythm with your desire to explore the pleasures and treasures of France, whether on a one-day bike excursion or several days of freewheeling or on a longer destination-based cycling adventure.

Gary will cover routes of interest to easy-going leisure bikers, to family with teens, and to experienced road cyclists seeking challenging rides, and take us to the regions around Paris, the Loire Valley, Normandy, Burgundy, and Provence.

After the lecture join us for light refreshments when you’ll have the opportunity to speak with Gary directly about your own travel plans and explore potential for a Sourland Cycles-sponsored biking trip in France later this year or in 2020!
