What we're about

BTCNJ believes we can all come together through cycling. That's why we offer over 2000 scheduled rides a year at various cycling levels. We believe it's safe and fun to ride with a group. Our rides break to socialize and snack. We host lots of social events like monthly club meetings, happy hours, picnics, pot lucks, and our premier event, our yearly anniversary party. **We also proudly host the Ramapo Rally **with rides from 12-125 miles. \
