Thanks again to everyone who came out and supported JORBA at our 3rd JORBA Jungle Jam - a little misty in the morning, but that didn't dampen anyone's spirits! We had bikes from Giant Bicycles and Trek Bicycle - always great supporters of JORBA. We were happy to welcome Ellsworth Handcrafted Bicycles for the first year, as well as SixSixOne, and saw some beautiful locally handmade bikes from Vlad Cycles of Boonton. So grateful to Shimano-MTB and Highland Sports Group for donating a new XT Drivetrain Groupset to encourage everyone everyone to join JORBA! Town Cycle, SRAM, and Tenafly Bicycle Workshop kept our bikes tuned up, and we caught up with Ride Allamuchy and Cranks around the Campfire as well as New Jersey Interscholastic Mountain Biking - NICA. Dirt Rock n Root Training and Cognition Endurance Sports Coaching led a bunch of great rides and helped become better riders - so we can go visit the fine folks at Windham Mountain Bike Park! Coney Island Pizza and Ruby Rose kept us well fed, and we were so excited to watch Pat Povilaitis, "The Human Vise" perform some amazing (and terrifying!) feats of strength. Our day wrapped up with a demo from trials champion and world record holder Jeff Lenosky - we're still trying to figure out how he does some of those moves! And our day wouldn't have been complete without the most excellent soundtrack provided by DJ Conrad, and as always, our favorite MC - BJ Kisch. But mostly we're grateful to all of you for your ongoing support - thanks for supporting Jersey Off Road Bicycle Association! Some pics for you -
