Got rides?

  • No ladies road ride this week (8/13) - yoga on the dock at Heather's instead. For more info -
  • Thursday - pre-ride the XC course at Mountain Creek. Meet at the base of the lift at 5:30 - get your ticket at the bike shop before you meet us. 
  • Friday - Friday night road ride - 'nuf said. 
  • Hilltop Grasshopper Kids Race - North Caldwell, NJ - grades K-8 - always a great event! More info available here.
  • Sunday - Jamis Bikes H2H Race #7 - Mountain Creek Summer Scramble - be there! More info can be found here
  • Sunday, August 17 - for all you KOM chasers out there, TTC's BJ is putting together one of his famous KOM road rides! Wheels down from Town Cycle at 12:45 p.m. The route - many various up hill roads in the West Milford / Orange County area, covering such things as lakes, ski areas, fresh made ice cream, people dressed in sillier costumes than us, a manor in Ringwod, Dr. King's wife's road, Dairy Queen, and back to the shop. Ride should be about 3 hours and will regroup at the top of the climbs. Bring your climbing legs and aero helmet and throw down with the group!
  • Also, please don't forget - the Greenwood Lake Air Show is this weekend (Aug. 15-17) - super fun show, so many cool planes, cars, etc. - great family event! However, if you were looking for a nice quiet ride at Jungle Habitat this weekend - this may not be your weekend. The air show will be using the lot for parking (and charging for it!), so plan accordingly. 
  • Also, the West Milford Family Pump Track will be closed August 15-17 because of the air show - so take the kids to the air show instead, and use one of our other local parks for your rides this weekend!
