What's up everyone. I found this forum over the weekend while looking for somewhere new to ride and figured I'd sign up and learn a few things and maybe make some new friends. I started riding last summer in preparation for the Timberbrook Triathlon down in Howell. I picked up a cheap Rockhopper on Craigslist and I've been riding down at Hartshorne and the Manasquan Reservoir pretty regularly ever since and had an awesome time on a weekend camping and riding trip up in New Paltz.

I love the shorter, hilly and bumpy loop at Hartshorne and I'm looking for something that's that much fun up here in North Jersey. I went out to Tourne Park this past weekend after reading about it on here and it was a little bland by comparison, even with the ice and snow, but still a nice ride.

Welcome! Check out Lewis Morris (never been there but its on my list of beginner-ish places to go). Check out the trail directory link up top for a nice inventory of what we have here in NJ.

howdy

i like ringwood's fire roads, also, if it stays cold, the red road in carlstadt can be ridden on a mountain bike

i don't know jersey too much, but i bet near your backyard, around the h.u.m.d.c, threre is some sort of mtb to be had

welcome

It might be difficult to match a bumpy loop at Hartshorne here in North Jersey. :rolleyes:

I'll give you LM (but not KVSP).
Point is, if you live in No. Jersey why would you want a trail that resembles Hartshorne?

I know; I'm still trying to figure out wtf a 'h.u.m.d.c' is. :confused:

Apparently huMDC is the same as muMDC. Understandably confusing. Perhaps this will help to clarify things up a bit:

Specifically: Radiolabeled Ligand Binding to gpCCR4 Transfectants-- Stable transfectants expressing gpCCR4 or huCCR4 were butyrate-treated overnight, as above. The cells were washed in RPMI + 0.5% BSA + 25 mM HEPES (pH 7.4) (binding buffer), counted, and resuspended in binding buffer at a density of 2 × 107 cells/ml. The assay was carried out as previously described (34). Briefly, cells were incubated with 0.1 nM 125I-huMDC and increasing concentrations of unlabeled huMDC or muMDC for 60 min at room temperature. Following centrifugation through Nyosil oil (Nye, Fairhaven, MA), cell-bound chemokine was determined using a Canberra Packard Cobra 5010-counter (Canberra Packard, Pangebourne, UK). Approximately 28% of 125I-huMDC was bound by huCCR4-transfected cells in the absence of competitor whereas 6% was bound by gpCCR4-transfected cells. Scatchard analysis of data was performed using MacLigand (35).

Helpful, right?

Welcome Aboard,
if you get to Manasquan Reservoir you should hit up Allaire.

Head over to Deer Park Allamuchy. I think Jackman means HMDC. If you go there bring a .22 for the wild dogs that'll eat yer ass.

yes

the h.u.m.c. is just hackensack university medical center, so i must have combined the two

Haha, thanks. Now I have that Hope Con song in my head.


And thanks to everyone else for your suggestions. I'm going out on Sunday in Monmouth Country - Possibly to Hartshorne, but if my riding buddy's up for trying something new I want to try to get out to Allaire.

did you find any of the unmarked trails in tourne? bc most of the good trails are not marked on the map, or are indicated as foot traffic only, but i have never had a problem riding on any trail there, i spent all summer riding there this year and everytime i was out (or it seemed like every time) i would find another unmarked trail to ride, youjust need to look for the unmarked trails, when you find them y ou will know it
