The Bicycle Touring Club of North Jersey, as a public service to bicyclists in the tri state area around New York City, provides a public cycling calendar for any public cycling event. This can include one day tours, charity rides, races, multiday events, or even bicycle shows or cycling events where cycling is not directly involved.
Anyone can add an event to our schedule. Once we approve it, it will become public and listed on our web site until the day following the start of the event. We reserve the right to not post an event, or edit the content as we see fit.
Read the descriptions below, then click the link at the bottom of the page to add your event.
The following fields are required:
TitleThis is the name of the event, what it is generally known as. This will appear on the first page of the listing, so it should be clear.
TypeThe event type can be one of the following:
- Tours are untimed and generally no mass start, and no prizes.
- Fund raising would be the primary reason for this event.
- Races are timed events, often with mass starts and prizes for places.

- Any event where actual bicycling is not the primary focus, but it relates to cycling.
