The 2022 Revolutionary Ramble

We hope you enjoyed Ramble 13. Thank you to all who supported our charity ride. Hope to see you next year.

For 14 years, we have run the Ramble on the second Saturday of June and we intend to continue that.

The Morris Area Freewheelers Foundation, announces the 14th Revolutionary Ramble on June 10, 2023.  

NEW! At this year’s Ramble we collected unwanted bicycles for the benefit of the Boys and Girls Bike Exchange in Mercer County. All proceeds from the sale of used bikes go to the Boys and Girls Club. This was quite a success. We collected 30 bicycles and assorted bike parts and bike clothing which were picked up by the Bike Exchange. Thank you to all who contributed.

 

2022 Start Points:
Road Rides: Drew University, Madison, NJ
Gravel Rides: Harry Dunham Park , Bernards Twp, NJ.

Drew is easy to get to by bike, car, or train from NY Penn Station, Newark or any stop on the Morristown Line. Drive time from Philadelphia is only 1 hour 45 minutes; from Stamford, CT it’s only 1 hour 30 minutes; from the Delaware water gap it’s only 54 minutes.

The Ramble offers fully supported cycling over beautiful terrain with routes for all abilities. Featuring SAG* support, bike-riding course marshals, mechanics for minor repairs, food at our rest stops, and a post-ride lunch. Our photographers post their photos for free downloads after the ride.

Set a cycling goal and ride one of our beautiful tours with your friends. Starting at Drew, we are offering six road tours: a 12 mile novice and family ride and 25, 35, 45, 70, 100 mi tours. In addition, starting at Harry Dunham Park, we’re offering 33 and 63 mile gravel tours.

You can register for one tour and ride another the day of the event. 

As road construction and other events can occur between now and June, we don’t issue detailed route information until quite close to the ride date. About a week before the Ramble all route information (start times, maps, Garmin files, cue sheets, parking directions) and many other details will be finalized and emailed to you in the Ramble Rider’s Manual. However, general descriptions will be updated and made available here before then. Check back later in the spring.

The road rides end at Drew U. where we expect to treat you to an air-conditioned cafeteria for lunch, depending on Covid concerns at that time. The gravel riders will get box lunches, if ordered when you register, at Harry Dunham Park.

The Ramble Benefits Local Volunteer Emergency Squads, Bike Safety and charitable Cycling Programs.

99% of our surveyed riders said they would recommend the Ramble to a friend.

“I love the Ramble. Yes, it’s beautiful country you ride through, but mostly I love it
because it’s splendidly run by hordes of people who are friendly and welcoming
as they are competent and well-coordinated”

by everyone’s spirit, organization, cooperative weather, and the beautiful course. .
Thank you so much for helping make my goal of riding a century possible.”
