Twin Lights Ride

Five route options showcase the gorgeous seaside vistas, rolling hills, and farmland of New Jersey.

Overview

Centered around the Navesink Twin Lights just up the hill from Huddy Park in Highlands, New Jersey, this ride showcases the best of the Garden State—coastal panoramas, undulating hills, quaint rural farms, and much more. Whether stationed at the start/finish in Huddy Park, helping folks refuel at rest areas, or fixing flats on the road, volunteers play a huge role in making this a special day for some 2500 cyclists.
