Again, this is a NO DROP ride. Our pace is as fast or slow as we'd like. This is all about having fun on our bikes.

Just realized this is Sunday IN!!! I just need to straighten out my brake lever from a wreck yesterday and should be good to go!!

Looks like I am out for the Sunday ride at Stephen's definitely gonna have to hit up @ReggieHammond in the future for a tour.

On another note, I may be riding Stirling or Ringwood that morning if anyone wants to join or show me around. Time is still undetermined.

Great ride today people!!! BPaze, and MTBdog came out, almost 6 miles of fun. I did a hell of a lot better then my first time out with MTBdog. Only one way to get better follow MTBdog into the woods and get tired and then realize the only way out is up hill.

I am probably getting out of work a little early today going to be the Morris Plains area thinking about doing Lewis Mars torn or possibly even going up to Ringwood anyone interested

So i rode Ringwood for the first time with a buddy today. My longest ride ever at just over 3 hours. The first hour or so was hell. Parked at skyline and took the white to the orange trail across the street. According to Trailforks They are both green trails. Let me tell you something..they were both nearly unridable. Walked about 60% and never could get a rhythm going. Gnarly rocks and drops almost everywhere. Even my buddy who is far advanced struggled. Finally made it up to the top of cannonball and bad a blast for the rest of the day. I probably won’t be able to move tomorrow but it was all for the good of riding, nature, and exercise.

I have to look at the cal but if anyone knows the park I would be happy to tag along.

I think you are taking about Ramapo forest not ringwood.
White and cannonball switch back are definitely not green trails.
I usually take yellow down from skyline to orange and climb the paved road back. Definitely not in shape to climb any of those trails.
