Um, dont go to Thompson Park. Take the trip out of town to 6 mile or Allaire, you will most certainly enjoy yourself.

Thompson Park is good for feeding caged animals and watching all the Latinos BBQ'ing on the weekends.:D

No one mentioned Clayton Park. Take Perrineville Rd across Rt. 33. Millstone Rd. to Rt. 526. Take 526 out to Imlaystown and you're there. Check the trail directory or the Monmouth County Parks website for more detailed directions.

Clayton is small but the trails are stupid-fast and a lot of fun. It's closer to you than Allaire and adds another option. There's usually a gang there on Wednesday evenings.

If you blink, you will probably miss them
Actually, there is a group of really good folks who ride there at more "reasonable" velocities, but Walter is right, avoid those hooligans who ride the 13mph laps. Those guys are nothing but trouble.:hmmm:

clayton or allaire

Clayton is a good ride, gotaa do multiple laps to put in mileage, but fun and rolling, gets more difficult the faster u go.
Allaire has lots of trails, which is why it's better to get up with peeps from the forum here to get the tour. Also, highly recommend the tuesday nite, 6pm beginner group ride at Allairen you'll learn stuff if yur a newb, and get the tour of Allaire. The pace is only as fast as the slowest rider and it's a real good time, over twenty riders on a nice night and if u get hurt, we may call for help before continuing on with our ride, haha.

I just found this site called www.meetup.com that has tons of groups rides in many different locations. I just went on my first group ride from that site today. Real nice turn out with about 10 -12 people. Might be worth it to check out.

I work in Monroe, but I have to say as much as I'd like to put my bike in the truck and take it work and ride at lunch, I don't know of too much in the way of decent off-road/trail riding. All I've seen are the hair-raising roads in the area. When I was a runner, I ran the 7 mile loop of Prospect Plains, Applegarth, Forsgate (yes, running across the 8A entrance ramp), Cranbury-South River, and back to Prospect Plains. I'm not that much of an adrenaline junkie anymore. :scared:

For my money I'd rack the bike on the vehicle and head out towards a Monmouth County park. Manasquan Reservoir is fairly flat, but a couple of times around can give you 12-18 miles, and a good hour or two. And Allaire is right near MR. Both are about 30 mins. from Monroe.

I live in Spotswood, so I can meet to ride sometime. I am not a huge fan of Thompson because it's small, so I get dizzy, but I would still meet there and ride around. If we are similar in our riding style/pace, next time we can venture to a more exciting place.
