Ride to preserve more of the landscapes you love!
Do you like clean water, scenic landscapes, untouched habitats for wildlife, and rolling farmland vistas? If you answered yes, please support the Pedal for Preservation on Sunday, June 22. All proceeds benefit The Land Conservancy of New Jersey which works to preserve and protect New Jersey’s natural land and water resources.
The organization is seeking riders, sponsors, and volunteers for its third annual Pedal for Preservation Bike Event. Riders will start and finish at West Morris Central High School, 259 Bartley Rd, Chester, NJ 07930.
Families, recreational riders, and avid cyclers can enjoy a 7, 14, or 28 mile rail trail ride through picturesque small towns in rural Morris and Hunterdon counties. The acclaimed, unpaved route traverses forest, farms, and parklands alongside the South Branch of the Raritan River.
Registration for the event is now open online at http://tlcnjride.eventbrite.com
“The day will feature a great ride, good food, and fun for everyone,” says Conservancy President David Epstein. “Best of all, riders will be pedaling alongside forests, farms, parklands and the South Branch of the Raritan River – natural land and water resources that The Land Conservancy of New Jersey is working to preserve and protect.” All proceeds from Pedal for Preservation will benefit The Land Conservancy of New Jersey’s efforts to create sustainable, healthy, livable communities.
Registration on the day of the event begins at 8:00am.
