The bicycle ride starts at PPA’s headquarters at a preserved farm in Southampton, NJ and travels through some hidden regions of the Pine Barrens, including State Forests, Nature Preserves, Famous Trails, Ghost Towns, Ruins, and the Carranza Memorial. Carranza? Captain Emilio Carranza was the “Lindbergh of Mexico”, whose plane crashed in 1928 in a remote section of the Pine Barrens during a goodwill mission.
In recognition of his adventure, and in celebration of ours, the ride finishes with post ride festivities in the renovated dairy barn at PPA. This event is organized and run by Kermesse Sport, with the help of the Pinelands Preservation Alliance.
