The Land Conservancy of New Jersey is having its 3rd annual Pedal for Preservation fund raiser on June 22.

Families, recreational riders, and avid cyclers will enjoy riding the Columbia Trail, a shaded rail trail ride through picturesque small towns in Morris and Hunterdon counties.

This acclaimed off-road trail traverses forest, farms, and parklands alongside the South Branch of the Raritan River. Route options of 7, 14, and 28 miles are available.

The ride begins and ends at West Morris Central High School, 259 Bartley Road, Chester. After the ride, join Conservancy members at the Finish Festival for family friendly fun, fabulous food, and local entertainment.

Here is the schedule:
8:30 a.m. - 28-mile ride begins

9:30 a.m. - 14-mile ride begins

10:30 a.m - 7-mile ride begins

11 a.m.- 1 p.m. - Finish Festival featuring live entertainment, lunch and family activities

12 p.m. - Announcements and door prize drawing

Registration for each scheduled ride begins 30 minutes prior.

This event is a fundraiser for The Land Conservancy of New Jersey which works to preserve and protect natural land and water resources — just like the ones you’ll be enjoying! Riders are encouraged raise funds by asking friends and family to sponsor their ride. Our fundraising tools make it easy.
