Randonneuring—non-competitive, long-distance cycling, where you follow a pre-planned route and attempt to finish within a set time-limit—is a great way to test your endurance, navigational skills, and fortitude.
On this 185-mile ride, you'll be on a flat to gently rolling route that will bring you to the Jersey Shore, passing through many of the top summertime destinations. The one climb of significance will be Mount Mitchell in the Atlantic Highlands which offers beautiful views of Sandy Hook and the New York sky line.
The route will follow much of the Cranbury 200K, but will have an additional 100K integrated into the route to bring it up to the 300K distance.
Finish within 20 hours and you've qualified to call yourself a Randonneur!
Please Note: It is possible for riders to be out on the route beyond sunset. For those riders, lighting and reflective gear are required.
