Upcoming events (5)

Out of Scotland Run

Scotland Run Park

We will be riding down to the Vineland/Pittsgrove area on this one.

As always, we will be mixing it up and taking some new roads.

I expect around 35 miles at a C pace with plenty of breakaways for the young at heart, or those with younger hearts.

This is for road bikes only.

Members only.

Here is the route clockwise: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/33605820

I may change it to counter-clock depending on the wind.

SJ Airport to Arney's Mt -- B pace (16-18 mph) 28+ miles

South Jersey Regional Airport

Yes, we will try to get in 28 miles on a weeknight. And we'll make our way to Arneys Mount, the highest point in Burlington County. On the flats, we'll maintain a 16-18 mph pace, with various opportunities for breakaways. On the downhill at Arneys Mount, we'll compare speeds when the ride ends, but I suspect someone will be north of 30 mph.

Weather looks great, so bring a smile.

Please RSVP.
