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, cooperative projects with local police departments and emergency squads, and other educational programs. We are a non-profit tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization.

CONNECTING COMMUNITIES THROUGH GRANTS
The Foundation in 2015-2016 supported work in three Morris and Somerset county communities that will make it easier and more enticing to bicycle instead of drive. The communities — Morris Township, Mendham Borough and Bernards Township—encourage cycling through their planning and work of local advocates. The Foundation’s support provided funds for bike racks in key locations such as parks, pools and downtown streets so that residents who elect to cycle know they’ll have a place to park.
SHARE THE ROAD…SHARE THE RESPONSIBILITY
In 2015, the Foundation partnered with Morris County Parks Commission to place Share the Road/Share the Responsibility signs in 21 locations throughout the park system. Palisades Interstate Park Commission also accepted signs for display at park entrances and exits.
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 email@example.com if we can help your group add safety talks and materials in support of your next charity or fitness-focused event ride.
