Welcome to Central Jersey Bicycle Club

32nd Annual Farmlands Flat Tour
Central Jersey Bicycle Club Farmlands Bicycle Tour on May 7 to support

"We are so proud to partner again with CJBC for its annual Farmlands Bicycle Tour in 2016," said Ray Gabler, Executive Director, Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County. "Last year, Farmlands helped raise substantial contributions through participants and CBJC for Habit for Humanity in Monmouth County and we look forward to another great bicycle tour this year both for us and participants." 



June  4,  2016   The  Longest   Day High Point to Cape May


It will only seem like the Longest Day of your life…..


Ride with us as we journey from High Point to Cape May, New Jersey.  Choose between the two different rides that are offered, from 100 mile to 200 miles. This is a member only club ride, but due to length, it is unsupported. That means that riders will be responsible for providing their own SAG vehicle support and accommodations at either end of the ride. A cue sheet and GPS route will be made available as a part of your membership. This is a unique ride with challenging terrain and will occur rain or shine. Riders will start at High Point Monument and slalom down through the hills of Northern NJ to the flat lands of Southern NJ and on to the Cape May Lighthouse. Along the way, preselected vendors and rest stops will be noted on the cue sheet for riders’ convenience


……Join for the ride of your lifetime, from sunrise to sunset, you will see New Jersey as you never have before in just one day.
