We had the inaugural ride today and had a turnout of about five people,although it seemed that several riders showed up a little late.I almost cleared the laurel section,but had to put my foot down once. That section will give you fits. We are having another ride on 11-17 12 and we're hoping with this advanced notice more people can make it. The trail is starting to bed down with more riding and I escaped chigger free today! always a good thing! Allen tells me that we should be having organized rides every two weeks or so. Come on out! A lot of work has been done here and more keeps getting done(if you can try and talk
Allen into letting us cut out some more laurel..it really is ridiculous..)

Are you meeting at Belleplain Forest's Lake Nummy Recreation Area parking lot? 9:00 am?

I've heard that Jim (aka: Chuck Norris) can clean both the Laurel Hell and Walt's Diner sections! :D

The laurel section beat me today, again. Maybe if I was riding Trevor's 24", I'd have a better chance. :D Thanks for leading the ride.

Thanks to everyone that came out for the ride,and thanks to everyone for making this trail possible. I can't believe that no one has thanked me for widening the pole pine section! I've tried to use the same method (flaying my arms wildly about while falling) in the laurel section ,but to no avail. Al is working on a somewhat regular schedule that we'll use during the winter if anyone is interested. We'll keep you posted!

Thanks for leading the ride, was definitely good for the soul. Allen was in his glory as evidenced by his huge grin....good stuff. You guys should be proud of what you've accomplished in a short amount of time. I say leave the tight sections, it's South Jersey tech!!

three hardy souls showed up to ride in three inches of snow,there was a brief panic attack at the sighting of a "rock lobster" and a good time was had by all....

10 count'em 10riders showed up when the weather conditions were less than perfect,but the trails thankfully drain fast. Thanks to the crew from Mojo Cycles for showing up and helping bed down the trail,it's getting better every ride,see everyone in two weeks!
