The official Randonee has been canceled, but V5 Cycles will be offering this ride as a store ride. All levels are welcome, but this is an unofficial ride and you will be on your own; although, we will all start out together at 8 a.m.The 2017 Long Course starts and finishes at V5 Cycles in Flemington, and is ca 131 km (82 miles) long with 5250’ of climbing (according to RideWithGPS). The ride is on paved roads (no dirt or gravel). This ride starts at 8:00 AMThe 2017 Short Course also starts and finishes at V5 Cycles in Flemington, and is ca 64 km (40 miles) long with 2150' of climbing (according to RideWithGPS). The ride is on paved roads (no dirt or gravel).  It is a subset of the long course; it splits off at Bagelsmith in Hampton, NJ, and while it isn’t easy, it skips the major climbs of the long course.   This is a ride, and not a race, and the roads are open to normal vehicular traffic, so you are expected to obey all rules of the road. Use of GPS is highly recommended, since quite a few turns do not have street signs. For best navigation, we suggest use of GPS in conjunction with the Official Cue Sheets, this way you will get relevant course notes and store locations.

Ride cancelled due to inclement weather. Come join the Western Jersey Wheelmen on a ride to the 74th annual Tour of Somerville on Memorial Day. The ride will feature hundreds of world-class cyclists participating in this event. It's a pretty impressive site to see them come snaking powering up Main Street in Somerville at over 40 miles an hour. The organizers of the event are trying to encourage local bike clubs to come to the event and are offering amenities to cyclists like secure valet bike parking so you won't need to find a place to chain up your bike, a hospitality area to sit and watch the races, access to a changing area and bathrooms, and a filling station to refill water bottles for the ride home.This can be a long day, be sure to bring a cue sheet or have GPS for the ride home if you want to leave early. Also, at this point there's rain in the forecast for Memorial Day, so be sure to check for a late cancellation if rain is forecast. This will be a no-drop ride at an easy pace. Faster riders may ride off the front. Helmets are required to join the ride. And you might want to wear your WJW jersey for club visibility.

This is THE premier cycling event in scenic Bucks County. Held each year on a beautiful Sunday with the gorgeous fall colors shouting out, the CBR, as our members call it, is our best event ever.You have five great routes to choose from -- the family-friendly 20 and 30 mile routes (both use the towpath along the Delaware river, which is a fine-cinder and hardpacked dirt trail, for part of the ride), or the hillier 33, 50 or 63 mile ones (all on paved roads) -- plus plenty of great food. Travel through up to six historic covered bridges.Fatter tired bikes work best on the cinder-based paths for the 20 and 30 mile routes, which visit one or two bridges. The rides conclude with a Grande Finale Picnic.Rides start and end at Tinicum Park, along the shores of the Delaware River. Join 2000 riders from all over the northeastern United States and ride through some of the most beautiful areas in this part of the world.

Tips for Fall Cycling

Autumn is a time of change. Some of it great – the leaves changing color, a new season for new endeavors, and a welcome relief from the heat. But that change also brings with it some new challenges for those who get around by bike. The rain can be a big deterrent for a lot of people to continue using their bike as a means of transportation. We also get shorter days, cooler mornings and evenings, and cloudiness. But the new conditions need not be a deterrent, just another opportunity to find your footing on two wheels. Here are some tips for cycling in autumn to keep you enjoying your commute through the cooling season.

I LOVE riding in Hunterdon County! The plateau in Kingwood to the rolling hills in Readington. Sometimes a challenge, but always beautiful scenery!

Kurt Grabfelder:

I appreciate being a club member because it makes it much easier to get riders together for a group ride.  Riding with a group is safer and, I think, it brings out the best effort in you.  I like associating with like minded people who are interested in biking, fitness and nutrition.
