The Morris Area Freewheelers Foundation is dedicated to safe cycling for fitness, fun, touring and transportation.
We work to educate cyclists and motorists alike about their responsibilities through event rides, bike clinics, cooperative projects with local police departments and emergency squads, and other educational programs. We are a non-profit tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization.

RAMBLE VIII READY TO ROLL
Registration is now open for the Foundation’s eighth annual Revolutionary Ramble Bicycle Tour. This annual event, with six different routes for riders of all abilities, has sold out each year since it began. The Ramble HQ will be at a new location, 475 South Street, just across from the South Street entrance of Loantaka Brook Reservation, on the campus of Atlantic Health Systems, our charter sponsor. Our home for the past seven years, Drew University, scheduled major construction this June prompting the change. 475 is just down the road from Drew and near Route 287 (map)
What will not change is the Ramble, with scenic routes past historic sites, friendly on-route support, great rest stops, photo ops, an all-you-can-eat outdoor barbecue lunch with covered seating, massage and post-ride fun.
New this year:
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR THE EIGHTH ANNUAL RAMBLE.
Ever been helped by a local ambulance squad? Know a friend who has been? Love bicycle riding, but concerned about safety on our roads?
Why not give us a hand with the Ramble?
We’re seeking volunteers who share our passion for cycling, history and safety – and appreciate beyond words what our EMS squads mean to us.
Our sign-up site should be up and running by March 1. If you would like to help, please pencil in June 11. And, if you would rather ride the Ramble but can help in advance with road marking, signage and set-up, we need you too. All the volunteer slots will be listed and described on March 1. Read more now and check back on March 1.
Running a successful Ramble requires more than 200 volunteers. You are vitally needed again this year to make certain that our participants enjoy a fun and safe event.
The Ramble is a major volunteer contribution of the Morris Area Freewheeler’s Bicycle Club, one of NJ’s largest and most active. Our volunteer ambulance squads also volunteer time on Ramble Day. But you don’t have to belong to a club, or a squad, or an organization of any kind to volunteer. No experience needed and volunteer team captains will guide you through the process.
After the Ramble, celebrate with us at our volunteer party and donation events for an event well-done and a contribution much appreciated.
Please help us spread the word that we can all responsibly share the road. Donations welcome. For donations of $5 or more, we will send you information about our activities and a decal just right for your car window.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if we can help your group add safety talks and materials in support of your next charity or fitness-focused event ride.
