Another spring favorite - this time with added excitement! May 17, 2015 - it's back, and better than ever! It's H2H Race #3 - Rumble in the Jungle! And just to kick it up a notch - it is also the 2015 NJ MTB State Championship race for 2015! Mark it on your calendars, and get ready to throw down - it's going to be filled with Jungle awesome!

Just as a reminder - to be eligible for a NJ state championship, you must have an annual USA Cycling license, and be a resident of NJ. We're psyched to see what the best MTB racers in NJ have for us when they are competing at the Jungle! For more info -

Early Bird Registration ends March 31 for Pedal for Preservation

We have previously told you about The Land Conservancy of NJ's Pedal for Preservation event on June 6, 2015. It takes place on the Columbia Trail, starting in Chester, NJ, and travels through Morris and Hunterdon counties. It's a great family event - little kids, big kids, etc. It is not a race, the trails are flat, and there are various distances available for all ability levels - 7, 20 and 30 miles. Early registration ends on March 31, so take advantage of the discount, and sign up today! There is also a non-cycling hiking option available this year as well. 

We've created a team for this event, so use "Team Town Cycle" as your team name when you register! 

It should be a great day - and the snow should be melted by then, right? 

Have a great weekend, everyone!!
