9th ANNUAL "BIKE TO THE BAY" EVENT PLANNED FOR MAY 11th
ALLOWAY, NJ - Get ready to ride in the seventh annual benefit bike ride for Ranch Hope’s Camp Edge on Saturday, May 11th.
“Bike to the Bay” is a “show and go” start, as early as 6:30 a.m., that begins and ends at Camp Edge, ¼ quarter mile off Route 611 in Alloway Township, Salem County. Riders will enjoy the scenic roads of Salem and Cumberland counties on one of the 5, 10, 33, 66, or 100 mile loops.
The entrance fee is $60.00 per rider and sponsors are encouraged. The rider’s package includes giveaways, rest stops, SWAG, and a barbeque at the finish. A friendly bicycle mechanic will be available for last minute tune-ups or repairs.
“We had a great turnout and great weather for last year’s ride and we look forward to the May 11th event being even better,” said Jack Fosbenner, manager of Camp Edge.
Camp Edge also appreciates the support and continued sponsorship by Action Wheels of Woodbury, NJ. Riders may pick up a brochure at their location, 1066 Route 45, Woodbury. Pre-registration is requested for this rain or shine event. Online registration is available through active.com.
"Bike to the Bay is a great event for all ages and riders of all abilities", noted Fosbenner. Families can register as a group for the 5-mile or 10-mile family ride. The cost is $110.00 per family. This year will also feature a Tandem rider category for $90.00.
Church groups are also encouraged to sign-up. Prizes will be awarded in the following categories: Church team with the most riders; Total miles ridden by a Church team; and Church team that raises the most money.
