Visiting Our Rest Stops is a treat Hunt

Cheesecakes, affogatos, wood fire brick oven pizzas, canolis, pignolis, cake pops, espressos, 8 flavors of electrolyte drinks - Every stop is a destination.

Cycling performance depends on great nutrition. A cyclist riding the Estremo or Gran routes can burn over 4,000 calories over the course of just a few hours. To maintain top performance and mood, the body must be fueled regularly with high quality foods. For cyclists, carbohydrates are the fuel of choice when on the bike. That’s because the active athlete’s body demands fast burning carbohydrates to maintain the body’s physical and emotional needs.

Along the route you’ll find endless fueling options, hand made from fresh local ingredients by New Jersey’s top chefs and pastry chefs. We’ll keep you fueled up with a large variety irresistible treats along the routes. Enjoy the treat hunt!

You can never be sure what to expect at our rest stops, but you can be sure it will be delicious!
