The Spring Classics are not all about the Monuments!
In tribute to the Belgian second tier classics, we present the Sourland Semi-Classic (SSC), a ca 60 mile ride that explores the Sourland Region of Central New Jersey. It will offer a gentle way to prepare for the main spring events. There is much more excellent riding to be had in the Sourlands; the SSC is our attempt to showcase it. Of course there will be some unpaved roads to go with the famous Sourland climbs and flats.
In tribute to the Northern European Spring Classics join us for the Annual Hell of Hunterdon, a 82 mile Spring Classic themed ride in Central NJ. The challenging course features 19 sections of dirt, gravel, and hardscrabble roads as it winds through scenic farmland and country towns in New Jersey’s Sourlands.
The Annual Fools Classic is a challenging cyclosportif which emulates the conditions of the Northern European Spring Classics. Despite being founded long prior to the Revolutionary War, Bucks County doesn’t have much in terms of cobblestone roads, but due to its rural nature, there are many unsealed roads of dirt and gravel, lending perfectly to a tribute to the Ronde Van Vlaanderen.
A “Spring Classic” for those who don’t like riding on dirt roads! The Fleche Buffoon is a tribute to the Ardennes Classics (Fleche Wallone, Amstel Gold Race & Liege-Bastogne-Liege). The challenging course features multiple steep climbs over its route. Along the way there will be miles of country roads, scenic farmland and quaint river towns. In true fashion, there is even an authentic Dutch windmill.
For cyclists, July is all about Le Tour de France. For the French, the most important day is July 14th; Bastille Day. A French rider winning the stage on Bastille Day, is a dream come true. In celebration of the French National Day, we present the Bastille Day Randonee.
Bikes! Beer! Brats! Is there a better way to celebrate the end of the road cycling season?
