Including pre-ride refreshments


BTCNJ recently donated a bicycle rack to the Borough of Demarest in memory of long-time member Ted Semegran.

Ted served as an officer of the Club, a frequent ride and tour leader, an advocate for bicycle safety, and a friend and inspiration to many of us. For several years, he organized the annual Bergen County Bicycle Tour (BCBT).

To celebrate Ted, the Club is sponsoring a Memorial Ride on Sunday, October 2, leaving from the Demarest Railroad Station parking lot, one of Ted’s favorite ride-start sites!


Pre-ride refreshments: Riders are invited to gather for coffee, bagels, and bananas at the start site beginning at 8:45 AM.

Rides: Two rides will leave around 9:30 AM—a 25-mile C* ride and a 40-mile B ride.

PLEASE sign up on the BTCNJ website ahead of time, to help plan for sufficient refreshments for all.
