Any TM near Toms River?

Hey there! Any TM near TR? Driving to work is hard enough, driving to TM before riding might be tougher. Is there JORBA activities below 287?
What group of JORBA would I join?
New to the state, so not too familiar NJ geography :? , but I know that TR is south of me. Check out I was told that they are in Southern Jersey, and they may have some more info on TM in your area. - is the link to the chapters page on the JORBA site. I believe there is a contact page as well, and they can direct you to which chapter will be closest to you.

There is also a JORBA forum for the purpose of posting chapter activities and TM activities.

The fire

Hey Mike, I heard there was a fire that distroyed the entire Monmouth County Park offices. Is there anything we can do for this Susan and the volunteer dept? How will we schedule Hartshorne/huber woods TM and such? Willing to help, thanks, Jess
Which TM meets will be nearest to Giants Stadium

So I check up on the TM dates and locations but sometimes trail names of nicknames are used. Since I'm a numpty at NJ geography I can't easily find the locations. So, to help me, can anyone pass contact details of people who organise TM within 45minutes or so of Giants Stadium - that's a pretty big landmark near where I live!


Here are the dates thanks...

Hey Steve, What's going on with Watchung? Will it/is it open again?

Watchung reservation, still closed

Hello, I grew up in Mountainside with the reservation literally in my back yard. Since it closed, the trails have gone from fair at best to down right horrible. I must admit I do ride their a couple times a year, usually in the winter, the trails are washed out, tree covered, and union county parks does NO trail maintence at all. Very sad, at least when you could go on them, at least the trees got cleared.
