We're excitedly continuing preparations for our 25th annual Miles for Matheny! And this year's celebration wouldn't be possible without our incredible friends and partners - the Bedminster Flyers Cycling Club. The club has been an integral part of Miles since they were asked to design the initial cycling routes in 1997. Every year, members devote hours to developing, refining, and clearly marking all of our cycling routes to ensure that they are safe, enjoyable, and offer something for novice and experienced riders alike.
Please join us in thanking the Bedminster Flyers for all they do to make Miles for Matheny possible! And be sure to register for Miles soon if you'd like to experience any of these beautiful cycling routes for yourself.
