50 Mile Route: The first 25 miles we ride at a pace of 14/15mph to keep the group together & safe as we roll through the traffic lights with the police escort from Newark to New Brunswick. This route will then head back north to Newark to complete the route.
Start location: Newark City Hall, 920 Broad Street, Newark, NJ 07102

66 Mile Route: You will begin your journey to New Hope, PA at The Yard on College Ave. The pace from here will pick up once the group arriving from Newark has had their chance to replenish their water bottles.  If you are a strong rider or aspire to ride with the leading fast group of cyclists, you may want to keep watch for the early peloton as they depart College Ave to head south to New Hope. If you are here for the tour or just want to get to New Hope at a leisure pace, this is where you want to identify the group that meets your riding style and head south to New Hope for lunch at the fire house. 
Meet up Time: Arrive in New 
Brunswick no later than 8:45am to check in and received your wristband. No wristband...No lunch in New Hope!
Start location: The Yard, 38 College Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ 08901

115 Mile Route: This is the full course. You have been training all season for this day and finally the day has arrived. Are you ready to show your strength, power and endurance?  Saddle up and get ready for the race of your life as you begin this journey to New Hope.  Yes, we know for the first 25 miles you are contained to a slower pace than your legs desire, but trust us it's for your own safety.  Once you arrive in New Brunswick and replenish the water bottles, meet up with a few new faces, take your photo shots and sign a few autographs, the pace will get exceedingly fast & hot as you head south to the New Hope Fire Department for lunch. Remember to save some in the engine for your return to Newark.
