2017 Farmlands Flat Tour - Central NJ

Registration is now open for the Farmlands Flat Tour.

33rd Annual Farmlands Flat Tour - Lincroft, NJ 2017 | ACTIVE

This family-friendly event has marked routes in a variety of distances, from a leisurely 15, 25, 35 mile jaunt to the ambitious 50 mile, metric (62.5 miles) and century (100 miles). All routes leave from Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, NJ.

Discounted registration before March 16, and every pre-registered rider gets a t-shirt.

Not for nothing, but it would be nice to have even a general idea (not just "farmlands") of where the ride was going.

The metric century and century go out to Mercer County, all they way out to Bordentown.

A few questions on the Farmlands ride:
- any stocked rest stops (or are riders on their own to hit Quickie Marts)?
- route maps / cue sheets / downloadable RWGPS files available prior to event?
- approximate number of riders expected?

All the rest stocks are stocked with snacks, water and Gatorade.

The 2016 routes are available from RWGPS now. There will be a minor change due to the relocation of a rest stop, but the 2017 routes will be up before the ride. Our volunteers are doing route check rides now to confirm any changes or detours. Cue sheets will be available the day of the ride as well.

The ride usually draws between 500 and 1000 riders. Day of registration is accepted so the number fluctuates a bit based on the weather.

The roads are not closed for riders, so this is a free start, ride at your own pace event. Registration and sign in is open from 7am to noon. All support services and the facilities at the college close at 6pm.
