    Great weather is upon us, so let's get out and ride our bikes!

    Back by popular demand is our scheduled group rides. We are planning on having 1 ride per month, visiting different parks between now and December. The goal of the rides is to get out and be social, if this interests you then join in the fun.

    Our first venue will be Allamuchy Boy Scout Camp this Saturday, April 15th at 9am.
    Directions:
    Boy Scouts Camp Allamuchy
    750 Waterloo Rd, Stanhope, NJ 07874

    Parking:
    make first right once you pull into BSA and head toward camp Wheeler. DO NOT SPEED. Follow road all the way up to parking lot. Looked for parked cars, that will be parkin lot:)

    This is for advanced riders who are comfortable riding rocks and handling elevation. If you are on the fence about this don't worry about skipping it, we will have many more rides geared toward beginners. We will be showcasing our race course for the H2H, which includes some exciting new changes. If you are interested, please respond so we can get a head count.

    Be sure to check back here for further riding dates, I will be posting them up soon.
    Post up any questions, I'm sure I left stuff out. Any complaints see @Mitch.

    You may want to update the first post with the overall schedule and keep that up-to-date in addition to posting at the end.

    Good ride today. We had a manageable group and despite the occasional showers found the trails really enjoyable. Thanks to Jeff and Joe for leading us on a flowee loop through Nassau.

    Hey folks, let's keep the group ride series going. Our next venue is June 17th at Stewart. These trails are fast and flowee which are fun for beginners as well as advanced mtbers.
    We will start at 10 am, this will allow the extra travel time to get up there, it's a bit of a drive but well worth it. We will be hitting some of the sections that will be in the Stewart 45, https://www.bikereg.com/stewart-45 , so sign up for this fun race and join us for the group ride!

    Parking: 41.5134259,-74.1578138 Ridge Road Parking Lot This is the main parking area for Stewart. Most "events" begin from this lot. Directions

    Probably would be good to do 4 laps of the 45 course.
