Pedal to Preserve the Best of New Jersey
Apr 30, 2012 08:14AM
Get your heart pumping and feet pedaling for a great cause on Sunday, June 3, as the Land Conservancy of New Jersey (TLC-NJ) hosts its first Pedal for Preservation bike event. Participants will ride on the Columbia Trail, a Rail to Trail route that is known as one of the most beautiful rides in New Jersey. Riders will start and finish at West Morris Central High School, 259 Bartley Rd, Chester.
The Land Conservancy of New Jersey, headquartered in Boonton, is a nonprofit member-supported organization dedicated to preserving and protecting New Jersey’s vital natural lands and drinking water resources. The Pedal for Preservation event offers the chance to team up with TLC-NJ by participating as a rider, team member, sponsor, donor or volunteer. Pay a flat registration fee or help fundraise by getting friends and family to sponsor your ride. Registration on the day of the event begins at 8am.
According to Conservancy president David Epstein, “This family friendly off-road biking experience is geared toward riders of all biking abilities. The day will feature good food,
a great ride, and fun for everyone. Best of all, riders will be pedaling to preserve the best of New Jersey—the beautiful natural lands that are so special to us all!” Proceeds from Pedal for Preservation will help fund the Land Conservancy of New Jersey’s land preservation work.
