Last Year the Ramapo Rally® was a smashing success. We expect the same this year. About 1,300 riders registered last year, of which only 343 were members of BTCNJ. We would like to see more of our club members riding the Rally. We are almost 1,500 strong. This is YOUR event. I’m sure we can come up with the often used TEN GOOD REASONS TO REGISTER AND RIDE THE 38TH RAMAPO RALLY…..maybe even more.

How about food? How can you beat A new menu of grilled selections (including vegetarian options), rest stop nourishment from Whole Foods, goodies from Trader Joe’s, Kind Bars, Miller’s Ale House, Port of Call, and a variety of drinks and ice cream.

We are already up to seven. How about this year’s gift? High-end Ramapo Rally sox. A chance to win a bike. And the big one, a chance to win a VBT trip, including air,  to Croatia. That’s ten.

And best of all when you register for the Ramapo Rally you’ll be helping the community, as a substantial portion of the proceeds go to a variety of locally-based, non-profit organizations, including Camp Sunshine in Ridgewood, the NJ Bike & Walk Coalition and volunteer EMS units.
