Catching up!

Well, there's no denying it - winter has finally arrived! Hope you are all home and safe with your loved ones. We're taking this opportunity to catch everyone up on a few things - 

  • If you haven't RSVP'd to your Evite for TTC's dinner on Friday, Jan. 30 - please do so now! We need to get a number to the caterer, so please let us know by the end of the day tomorrow (Tuesday, January 27). Didn't get your Evite? Check your spam folder, or send us a note - we'll re-send. Bringing a friend who would like to join? No problem, just let us know!
  • We need your photos! Everyone likes to see themselves in the slide show - and they especially like to see funny or embarrassing pictures of their friends. Please send them by Thursday afternoon. 
  • Reminders to bring to the dinner
    • Your checkbook or cash to renew your membership
    • Non-perishable food items or personal care items for donation
    • Clean used cycling clothing/gear for donation. 
  • Can't make the dinner? Waaaahhh - we'll miss you! But at least you can renew your membership online through BikeReg. Or send us a check to our P.O. Box - P.O. Box 557, West Milford, NJ, 07480. 
  • Finally, weather permitting, don't forget we will be going ice skating at the Bear Mountain Ice Skating Rink on Sunday, February 1. We'll got to the 10-11:30 a.m. public skate, and then take it from there - maybe a hike, maybe a beer or hot chocolate? We'll make that part up as we go! See their website for all costs including parking. 
As always, you can keep up with everything we are doing by liking our Facebook page, following our Twitter page, our Google calendar and our blog

Looking forward to seeing everyone this Friday, January 30th. Until then, stay safe and warm!

Dates to save!

Just a reminder about our annual Thanksgiving Day MTB ride at Wawayanda (Thursday, Nov. 27, for those of you who need to be reminded) - we'll get exact times out shortly! A great way to get ready for all that turkey and pie - don't miss it!!

Second - save the date - it's time for the annual TTC dinner! Open to all 2014 TTC members and all those who join for 2015! This year we're looking at Friday, January 30th - High Crest Lake Lodge. Stay tuned for the particulars. In the meantime, start sending in your pictures - you know how we love them!!! 

Lastly, if you're looking to get a ride in this weekend, TTC's Nick is heading to 6 Mile - meet at the Canal Rd. lot at 11:30 on Saturday. Mountain bike or CX bike will do - and bring those hand warmers! 

Stay warm, everyone!!!

Crossnado is coming!!!

Yep, only a few days away - it's CROSSNADO! November 2, at our new venue - Wawayanda State Park. Pre-reg closes at 9 p.m tomorrow night! Save yourself some money, and get yourself a better call up/starting position - pre-reg now!

Once again, there will be Mexican food from our favorite Ruby Rose, Heckle Hill for you to torment your fellow racers, and a wide range of terrain - dirt, grass, sand, gravel, pavement, climbing, flats - we've got it all!

If you want a sneak peak, we'll be out taping the course starting at 12 p.m. on Saturday. After you race CXMeur (as you should be!), come on by - it's only a short ride down Clinton Road, 20 minutes from Craigmeur.

As always, any questions - See you Sunday! (and don't forget the time change - Daylight Savings Time ends on Saturday night - turn your clocks back!)
