3rd Annual Martys Spring Classic: Riding Dirty

3rd Annual Marty's Spring Classic: Riding Dirty

March 25 2018
Hackettstown, New Jersey, USA

Join us for a great day of dirt, sweat, and beers with the most scenic and rugged riding in New Jersey! Choose between 40 miles/2700ft of climbing and 70 miles/5200ft that will take you on some of the best - and least traveled - routes in northern NJ! The route will feature quiet farm roads, scenic climbs, rail trail, and sections of dirt road through some incredibly beautiful countryside. For 2018 we have added a shorter 40 mile route and even more gravel sections that truly showcase the hidden landscapes of northwestern New Jersey. Both routes feature challenging terrain, with grades over 12% on some climbs, on less travelled paved roads, dirt, and gravel sections. Called "Harder than Hell [of Hunterdon]" by past participants, come test your mettle with great company and an awesome after-party at Czig Meister Brewing!

Routes can be found here and downloaded to your GPS device or print out the cue sheet directions.  There will be a halfway rest stop in Long Valley, with light mechanical support, restroom, and one free coffee or tea available at The Coffee Potter! For our Extra Dirty Riders there will also be a light rest stop at mile 50. 

    70 Miles:  https://ridewithgps.com/routes/26693632

     40 Miles:  https://ridewithgps.com/routes/26693392

Course will be marked, ride is self-supported in the spirit of a randonee or spring classic of old. Roads are open to traffic but the course is on primarily backroads that will make you wonder if you're still in New Jersey. Mechanical support at rest stop.

A road or cyclocross bike with tires wider than 25c is the best tool for the job. We'll be riding on mostly paved roads with gravel, dirt, and rail trail sections and some unpaved climbing.
