The Sourland Spectacular will take place on September 12th and will begin and end at the Otto Kaufman Community Center in Skillman. The rally will include challenging routes for the avid cyclist, as well as shorter alternatives for the more casual bikers. Ranging from 24 to 64 miles, all routes will include significant climbing and spectacular views.

Tickets for the 4th Annual Sourland Spectacular are now available for purchase at

Coffee and snacks will be provided at registration. Additionally, all designated rest stops along the routes will offer beverages, snacks and bathroom facilities. Following the morning rides, bikers will enjoy a complimentary gourmet picnic lunch.

“The routes that we’ve created for this year’s event will be both challenging and memorable,” says Sourland Conservancy President, Joanna Fiori. “More importantly, they will showcase the stunning landscape of the Sourland Mountain Region that our organization works so hard to protect. Ride the roads to save the mountain!”

All participants who register by August 28 will receive a free “polar”-style insulated water bottle commemorating the event. The registration fee is $35 per person online and $45 at the door. The fee for children ages 12 to 16 is $25. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian

Proceeds for the Sourland Spectacular will benefit the Sourland Conservancy, a non-profit organization that works to protect the ecological integrity, historic resources and special character of the Sourland Mountain region.
