Weekend reminders - August 17-19

Just a quick reminder - because of the air show at Greenwood Lake Airport (which runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday), Jungle Habitat will be teeming with people on the ground and planes overhead! If you're looking for a quiet ride, try some of our other local state parks! 

Also because of the air show, Farrell Field will be closed, so there will be no work sessions on the pump track this weekend. Thanks again to everyone who has come out!

Want to take the kids riding? Consider taking them to the 3rd annual Hilltop Grasshopper Kids MTB race in North Caldwell - they run a great event for kids entering K-8! More info - http://www.jorba.org/node/645

And as always, Friday night ride on Clinton Road - our season is winding down, so don't miss it! 

Have a great weekend everyone!

Pump track work, kids racing and more!

  • Work is in full swing at the West Milford Pump Track - don't you want to be able to say you were there when it was built? Join us tonight (Monday) and Tuesday night to lend a hand as we continue to move and sculpt! It's dirty work, so bring gloves and your least favorite socks and work appropriate shoes! We'll be there at 6 p.m. both days, weather permitting.
  • Don't forget, this Saturday is the 3rd annual Hilltop Grasshopper kids MTB race in North Caldwell. Our JORBA and Hilltop Conservancy friends put on a wonderful event - perfect for getting kids involved in racing. All kids ages K-8 are welcome! Swag for everyone who participates! More info - http://www.jorba.org/node/645
  • Reminder that this coming weekend, August 17-19, the Greenwood Lake Airshow is taking place. Jungle Habitat will be open for riding, but it will be crawling with people, and lots of planes flying overhead. If you are looking for a quiet nature moment, you may want to think about riding elsewhere this weekend. On the upside, the air show is supposed to be fantastic, so check it out if you are so inclined!
  • Lastly, our NYC ride for Sunday, Aug. 19 is being postponed. We'll let you know as soon as we can reschedule.
Of course, weather permitting, our usual Wed. and Fri. Clinton Road rides are on - the days are getting shorter, so don't miss out on this last month or so of rides! 

As always, any questions, drop us a line at info@teamtowncycle.com, and have a great week!

Weekend mountain biking fun!

Lots of mountain biking fun for the weekend! Check us out! 
  • Saturday, August 11 - JORBA ride at Jungle Habitat - part of the ever popular JORBA ride series! Two groups - one for those who would like the complete tour, one for those who want to go fast! Meet at the gate, wheels down at 10 a.m. Great chance to meet the good people who do the hard work at other parks in the state! More info here!
  • Also on Saturday, TTC's BJ will lead a ride at Mountain Creek. Meet at 9 a.m. at the biker parking lot across from the mountain, we'll be on the lift by 9:30 a.m. $7 buys you a one time ride up the mountain, where we'll hit the cross country trails. The XC trails are pretty tame, any level should be able to handle it! At the end, we'll sneak in a downhill run or two, or if you prefer, hitch a ride on the gondola. 
  • Sunday, August 12 - TTC's James will lead a ride up at Stewart State Forest, meeting at 12 noon. It will be about a 20 mile loop in a beginner/intermediate level. Weather permitting. Stewart is a great place for riders of all levels, a good place to check out! Use the Weed Road Entrance just off Rt. 207. 
Hopefully the weather will cooperate across the board! Have a great weekend, everyone!

Two for Tuesday - take your pick!

Looking for a few more PayDirt hours? Or .... maybe want to sneak a peak at the pump track progress? We can help you out! We'll meet at the regular time at Jungle Habitat (5:45 p.m.), have everyone sign in, and then split into 2 groups - some of us will continue the awesome work that's been going on at JH, and some of us will head next door to the pump track. Pump track work will count as PayDirt hours, so come on out and join us!

As always, let us know if you have any questions - info@teamtowncycle.com
