2nd Annual Marty's Spring Classic: Riding Dirty

65 mile dirt road ride

Sunday, April 2nd 9:30am

Marty's Reliable Cycle

Hackettstown, NJ


Join us for a great day of dirt, sweat, and beers: 65 miles and 4500 ft of climbing will take you on one of the best - and least traveled - routes in northern NJ! The route will feature quiet farm roads, scenic climbs, bike path, and sections of dirt road through some incredibly beautiful countryside. Celebrate afterward at Czig Meister Brewing Company's olde-world style tasting room with a complimentary craft beer and afterparty.

++Route can be found here and downloaded to your GPS device or print out the cue sheet directions at: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/18585879 One rest stop with light supplies will be approximately halfway on the course.

++Course will be marked, ride is self-supported in the spirit of a randonee or spring classic of old. Roads are open to traffic but the course is on primarily backroads that will make you wonder if you're still in New Jersey. 

++A road or cyclocross bike with tires wider than 25c is the best tool for the job. We'll be riding on mostly paved roads with gravel, dirt, and rail trail sections and some unpaved climbing. 

The ride will be starting at Marty's Reliable Cycle on Main Street in Hackettstown, and ending several blocks down Main Street at Czig Meister Brewing Company. Enjoy a complimentary beer with registration in Czig Meister's German-style beer hall to recount the day's adventures.
