Cyclists of all ages and abilities are invited to hit the trail and help raise money to preserve and protect New Jersey’s land and water resources. The Pedal for Preservation is ideal for families and outdoor enthusiasts. Participants are urged to ask friends and family to sponsor their ride.
The Land Conservancy hosts New Jersey's Premier Rail Trail Ride -- an off road biking experience on a relatively flat tree-canopied trail, ideal for both avid cyclists and casual riders to explore. This acclaimed route traverses forest, farms, and parkland alongside the South Branch of the Raritan River and through small towns in Morris and Hunterdon counties. The trail surface is natural dirt and crushed stone. There are also hike/walk options for non-cyclists.
All proceeds benefit The Land Conservancy of New Jersey which works to preserve and protect natural land and water resources -- just like the ones you’ll be enjoying!
