Nice map. Fastest subtitle ever I think. 20 minutes has to be a record no?

Hi Chad, my sister just got home from Nigeria, perhaps you know her.

I think you really should explain a little more about this. Maybe this can be Ben's next question. Getting to know you question #13: Do you have any insane siblings?

Hello from another South Jersey rider

Hello Chad,
I see you are from Franklinville.
The closest to you would be the trails in Wharton State Forest. There are two trails. The Fire Tower trail was built with beginners in mind. It is a 5 -6 mile loop from the Batsto Village parking lot. The longer Penn Branch trail is the same level of difficulty but longer at 19.5 miles. It could be hard on a beginner or someone not familiar with the forest.

There are trails by Camden County College, Gloucester County College and Ceres Park in Mantua. Estell Manor park has some trails.

If you are looking for rides in South Jersey you can check out these websites.

We have beginner clinics that start in May.
