Rest Stop and Route Options
ROADS ARE NOT CLOSED TO MOTORISTS RIDE WEEKEND
Be courteous. Be responsible. Be safe! The dangerous actions of a few can jeopardize the future of this ride for all. Bike MS provides the necessary tools to educate all City to Shore cyclists on proper riding etiquette but it’s up to YOU to become a responsible cyclist. We need you to spread the word to your fellow cyclists and teammates and protect the integrity of the ride. Visit the Safety Zone for more information. Plus, a document featuring important reminders and rules of the road is being mailed to all cyclists.
Important Note: Last winter's brutal conditions left a lasting mark on roadways throughout South Jersey, including the route for Bike MS: City to Shore. Road surfaces in some townships may still be rough or bumpy, so we are asking all cyclists to be more cautious than ever before. Your safety - and the safety of those riding with you - depends on you.
One-day (Saturday-only) options:
*On Wednesday, September 25, 2013 we were informed that a bridge near the Winslow/Waterford Township border (after the first rest stop on Saturday) was closed by the county due to concerns about structural safety. A detour, adding 1.7 miles to the Traditional 75 mile and 100 mile routes, was added to accommodate this unforeseen last minute situation. Currently this bridge is still closed, with no known reopen date, and the detour is still in effect for 2014.
