New Jersey Rocks!!!
So fun today..thanks Ben.
No thank you. Joan, Kevin and Chris for a great tour of a great trail system I ended up with 20 miles and could have done another 10 if I did not have to meet a old friend at 3pm
You guys are some awesome riders and gave me the presidential treatment, after you guys left me in C lot. I had another carolina pale ale and headed to the top of pierson ridge via the trail aside shepherd lake, but first I hit the swithback trails heading to shephard lake for the 2nd time of the day, which are some sweet rocky technical trails that I usually drive 41/2 hours for in NC. I then headed up the trail along side shephard lake where I made a right onto whoop no more and then some how I got lost and realized I was on millie white? so anyway, I hung a left on a crossover trail before millies old house and made my way up chainsuck hill (a awesome climb) most likely more intense hitting the trail as a downhill! next time. I then made a right on pierson's ridge and it was starting to drizzle so I took a break. I geuss I was at the mid point where there are a few big boulders and then had another carolina pale ale and then I took off for what I thought was the best part of the 12 mile loop, I ended up with! First I hit piersons ridge as a downhill, which was not bad at all and made a left on the best trail I think in the park or what I rode saturday "Renegade" as I was riding this trail I thought to myself this is the wrong way to ride it? But I still enjoyed it anyway with only 1 dab to my credit and most likely because of the carolina pale ale I had on the top of peirson's ridge
what a sweet trail. you guys at RVCC know how to build sweet rocky technical trails! and then made a right as I exited the "Renegade" trail and by then the map I had started to fade from all the sweat. So I remembered that we did the red trail earlier in the day and that's the trail I followed all the way down, another great trail I rode as a downhill twice in 1 day, sweet
and then I hopped on the schoolhouse trail for a second time which is another great technical trail and then rode the paved road to lot C for the end of the loop. Excellent day all around. You jerseyites have an excellent trail system in Ringwood and I will be back to ride it again and Joan also promised me a tour of way way yonder the next time I get up north.
P.S Brian, I'll catch up with you and your crew next time I'm up! I have your number.
Here are a few shots I took. I'm pissed I did not take anymore due to having too much fun. Remember, I'm not a professional photographer and my camera is cheap
