Cyclists may choose from marked routes of 20, 40 or 62 miles around Lake Hopatcong. There will also be a 1.5-mile or timed 5K trail run on Hopatcong State Park grounds, as well as a 2.5-mile paddle course on the lake. Kayaks, canoes and paddleboards are available to rent during the registration process, if needed.

Event times will be staggered to allow participants to choose one or any combination of activities. Strava bike timing will be available for hill climbs along the bike routes and the 5K will be a sanctioned and timed event, with awards for the top performers.
