FYI, it actually is in Turnersville, Washington Twp in Gloucester County, not to be confused with the township of the same name in Bergen County, NJ.

Best Regards,

The ride was started a few years ago in the memory of slain Washington Township Police Corporal Steve Levy “63” who was killed in October 1999 on a SWAT call out in Woodbury, NJ.
The ride begins at Washington Twp High School. Registration is from 7:00AM-9:45AM and the ride begins at 10AM. The ride fee is $20.00 for the rider and a $1 for passenger. The police escorted ride will go 63 miles(his badge number) through Gloucester, Salem and Cumberland Counties. Info taken from lets-ride.com

NJ is a confusing place. We have the counties, townships and than towns. A certain number of towns make up a township, than a few townships make up a county and than the counties make up a state. It is confusing, trust me and I live here.

I won't be able to make it, I'll be in Gettysburg, but the run is usually a good ride.

Best Regards,
Norm

That was one big ride! No clue how many bikes, but I'd guess at least 1,000. I lasted 24 miles before I bailed. The guy behind me and I had different ideas of group riding etiquette! :doh Well, I donated to the cause and even bought a raffle ticket for some kind of twinkie. Split off solo and did Salem and Cumberland counties in NJ. Anyone else do the ride?
