FLEMINGTON, NJ - The Western Jersey Wheelmen’s annual cycling event will benefit Hunterdon Land Trust.

Western Jersey Wheelmen is a recreational bicycle club based in Hunterdon County. Its Tour de Flateau fundraiser will take place on July 8 at V5 Cycles in Raritan Twp.

The Land Trust is a private, nonprofit organization with a mission to conserve land and its resources. It has a history of successful and strategic land preservation, and some of its  preserved parcels will be along the event’s routes.

Land preservation is a critical tool in the effort to manage growth and maintain Hunterdon’s traditional rural character. By working with local governments, the Land Trust helps communities control sprawl, reduce traffic, protect beautiful landscapes and historic areas, and provide ample space for outdoor recreation

The Tour de Flateau takes place primarily on Hunterdon’s Plateau: 60 square miles of fairly flat country roads, woodlands and farmland west of Flemington.

Organizers call it “a cyclist's paradise.”

The ride is fully supported with rest stops, nutrition, tech and “SAG.” That stands for “Support and Gear,” which is typically provided by a vehicle that carries things such as food and water, tire pumps and tools. Mechanics will be available at the start of the event.

Tour de Flateau includes your choice of 100-, 62-, 31-, Flat 30- or Flat 15-mile routes.

More information can be found on the website.
