Picking up the pace!

Lots to talk about for this weekend - no time to lose!
  • You know it, you love it - the famous Friday night Clinton Road rides are back! For those of you who are not familiar with our much storied rides, we meet at the old Village Square Inn parking lot on Route 23 in Newfoundland. We break into groups, and do an out-and-back on Clinton Road, and a lap around Upper Greenwood Lake, for those who are so inclined. If you are not used to group road rides, this is a great ride to learn on! Pace line basics, group ride etiquette, etc. are all part of the fun. For this week, we will be wheels down at 5:30 p.m. sharp - any later and we will lose the light! So plan your arrival time accordingly. It's a great way to get used to riding in a group, so bring a friend and join us!
  • Saturday, March 31 - join us for our 2nd annual Clinton Road Clean-up. We spend a lot of time riding on this road, it's only seems fair that we help keep it clean. Meet us at the aforementioned Village Square Inn Parking lot at 9 a.m., and we'll make our plans from there. Please bring work gloves, water, a Team Town Cycle jersey or vest if you have one, and bug repellant or sunscreeen if desired.
  • Also Saturday, March 31 - a ladies only mountain bike ride at Lewis Morris Park in Morristown! Meet us down by the lake at 1 p.m. (or shortly thereafter!) - we'll gather and decide where we want to go from there! There's always the temptation of a late lunch at the local Mexican restaurant afterwards to get you through your ride! Lewis Morris is a very friendly beginner venue - if you are a bit rusty, or not up to rocky singletrack just yet, this is a great place for you! Rain will cancel! 
  •  Sunday, April 1 - two events at Jungle Habitat - and no, that's not an April Fools joke!
    • The first JORBA trail work day of 2012 at Jungle Habitat is here! We're switching up the format a bit - first we will ride, then work. Meet us at 9 a.m. at the gates, and we'll ride (social pace) until about 11:45 a.m. Bring some lunch, we'll change, eat, and then head out at approximately 12:30 to work for about 3 hours. Bring your work gloves, water, etc. - we'll provide the tools. And yes, this is a Paydirt eligible event, so come on out, H2H racers!
    • UPDATE - we're going to put this ride on hold and help out at the trail work day - we'll reschedule for another day! Also, we'll have a second ride at JH - easy pace, possibly throwing in a lap around Warthog- 1-2 hours long, not a killer ride! We are wheels down at 1 p.m., so please plan ahead.
  • Also for Sunday, April 1st - our first Sugarloaf/Warwick Bicycles and Brunch road ride of 2012! This will be a moderately paced road ride (no drop), starting at Town Cycle at 9 a.m. We'll stop for breakfast burritos up in Sugarloaf, for those interested, and maybe an Italian cookie in Warwick, for anyone who is up for it. Bring some cash and plenty of water - it's a wonderful scenic ride!
So there you go - something for everyone! The weather looks great for this weekend, so no excuses - come on out and join us! As always, let us know if you have any questions -

Weekend reminders, and a Clinton Road Clean-up day!

Don't forget - 2 rides this weekend!

  • Mountain bike ride meeting at 5 p.m. at Jungle Habitat today, March 23. Casual Friday ride - no killer pace or radical climbs. 
  • Mountain bike ride on Sunday, March 25 - wheels down at 1 p.m. sharp! Mellow ride, a nice afternoon cruise - rain will cancel.
For next weekend - join us as we show Clinton Road some love and do some spring cleaning! On Saturday, March 31, we'll meet at the old Village Square Inn parking lot on Route 23 in Newfoundland at 9 a.m. Wear old clothes, bring work gloves, and your TTC jersey or vest if you have one! Sunscreen and bug spray would probably be advisable too, as well as water. We'll split into groups and spend a few hours cleaning up the road we love to ride on so much! We'll make a go of it in light rain, but steady or heavy rain will cancel. 

Also - don't forget our first Sugarloaf/Warwick brunch road ride of the year is April 1st.

As always - questions - .

Two rides for the price of one at Jungle Habitat this weekend!

Yes, we're sticking close to home for these rides, so no excuses! First ride is Friday, March 23 - meet at the gates at 5 p.m. for an easy two hour ride. Nothing too hard, just a nice post work ride.

The second ride is on Sunday, March 25. We will roll out promptly at 1 p.m., so please be ready! This will be a mellow ride - Chute, Otter Slide, Cages, Boon - no killer climbs. We'll ride for about 2 hours. Forecast keeps changing for Sunday, but rain will cancel.

Things are already growing in the woods in this crazy weather - come on out and see what is new!

Ladies Road Ride Wednesday, March 21

No, it's not the official start of our Wednesday night road rides for the ladies, but how can we pass up an opportunity to ride in this beautiful weather? So ladies, come celebrate the first full day of spring with a road ride on Clinton Road. For those of you who are new to the group, meet us at 5:30 p.m. at the old Village Square Inn Parking lot at the corner of Clinton Road and Route 23 in Newfoundland. We'll do and "out and back" ride on Clinton Road with just the girls, finishing before dark.

As always, any questions -

Night ride, March 8

We're going to take advantage of the almost full moon and warm weather on Thursday, March 8 and go for a night ride! Join our hosts Norm and Sherri at their place (49A Meridan Road, Rockaway, NJ - you might have to park on Lee Way or Winding Way, just off Meridan and across from house.) Meet at 6 p.m., we'll be rolling by 6:30 p.m. It'll be a quiet paved road to a dirt road - not technical, but there are some hills. Mountain bikes a must, as are lights. It'll be a nice 2 hour ride - come out and join us!

As always - any questions -
