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 -

Another chance to order a cool camo TTC kit!

Yessiree, due to popular demand, we've opened up the Verge store for more kit orders! The store is open until June 12, so don't delay - get those orders in! Although it's hard to think about it now, we'll be looking for winter gear soon enough - get your hoodies, long sleeve jersey, or maybe a cool free ride or BMX jersey! Just go to the Verge site, click on "Team Store",  log in (or create an account), and search for "Team Town Cycle" in the yellow search box.

Come on, aren't they cool???

Speaking of new kits, make sure you post your photos of you and your new kits with the hashtag #teamtowncycle - we love to see those pics. And please - help us spread the Team Town Cycle gospel! Take a minute to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and of course Instagram and our blog. Also, don't forget our Team Town Cycle calendar - it's easy to integrate it to your own Gmail calendar, or to your iPhone or Android calendar app. Easiest way to find out when the next ride/race/event is!

10th Rumble in the Jungle May 22 - and we're giving away stuff!

Yes, it's hard to believe on May 22, the AC Daughtry Security H2H Race #4 will be the 10th Rumble in the Jungle! Everyone thought we were crazy when we said "Hey, let's race at Jungle Habitat" - but here we are, 10 years in, and still going strong.

We know how it goes - you say you are going to pre-reg, you really mean to pre-reg, and then you get distracted by something shiny (SQUIRREL!!) ... and then, it's 9:10 p.m. on Friday night, and you missed it. But this time, we've got a big juicy incentive for you ...

To celebrate our 10th Rumble, we are having a few giveaways for all you faithful MTB'ers who pre-reg. We will have one $500 gift card to Town Cycle, as well as 2 pairs of Shimano shoes (any shoe you want!) courtesy of Shimano and Highland Sports Group. That's 3 great prizes! And they are available to anyone who pre-registers - for any class. We'll use the magical random generator after registration closes on Friday night at 9 p.m to pick our lucky winners, so this time - don't wait!

We're putting the finishing touches on the course, and as usual we will have Alan from Ruby Rose serving up some of his awesome post race food. And new for 2016 - a first timers class! So don't forget to pre-reg, come on out, bring your party hats, and celebrate 10 years of Rumble with us!
