Does anyone do anything at Clayton Park? Trails are pretty nice there, must have someone maintaining them.

That's handled by the Monmouth Cty. Park System. If you would like to join the ranks of the VIP (Volunteers in parks) program please reach out to Susan Walsh at 732-842-4000 ext 4283

Sorry, I won't be able to make Sourlands - I'm doing the 5 Borough Bike Ride on Sunday...

Sourland pics

Here's a couple of shots from today's TM at the Sourlands. I didn't take any "before" pics unfortunately, but these areas that we cobblestoned were deep mud pits. The water is diverted to the lower side of the trail into a trench that empties into a creek. There was much more work here done then I photographed. We had a crew of 7 bikers and 4 hikers. Good stuff.

A few of us hung around for a ride afterwards in the rocky playground called Boulderama. Damian nails a 3.5' drop. Bob A. takes the roll down option. Great fun with a good crew.

jeff - nice pics, and good work. you were out there despite the lyme's disease?

My wife has a theory that whenever you are sick, no matter what the cause or symptom, the answer is maximum rest. My theory is, whenever I'm sick, I take the medication as prescribed but like to keep busy to keep my mind occupied. So I layered up to keep out of the sun (one of the side effects of the AB) and headed out. The ride was pretty short (only about 9 miles) but Sourlands miles are pretty tough. I'll admit that I'm pretty knackered right now.

Good job Jeff. Aren't 9 Sourlands miles like 18 most other places?

Also mark your calendars for Saturday June 2nd as we need as many volunteers as possible for National Trails Days @ WVP. This is the 1st time Somerset County is holding the NTD at this park & we want a good showing of mountain bikes at this event. We have lots of projects planned.

Hmm this Saturday is a stretch but I'd really like to try and make the June 2 gig.

Kirt - are you talking about that trail that we rode down with Gary & JimG a few years ago that we ended up in the middle of pricker bushes and basically bushwhacking out to the road?

That's the one. It would add a nice little loop to the mix. I rode/walked it back in Feb & it wasn't to bad & the rangers want it to be used.
Put the 2nd on your calendar, we are going to need lots of help (installing boardwalks).
