Pump Track News and Weekend Events!

FYI for anyone who was thinking of going to the West Milford Family Pump Track this weekend - because of the Greenwood Lake Air Show, the track must be closed starting today through Sunday, as Farrell Fields are part of the safety zone for the air show. 

So - take in the air show (it's great for all ages!), or if your kids want to work on their mountain biking skills, take them down to the Hilltop Grasshopper Race in North Caldwell on Saturday. Geordie and his family put on a super event - your kids will love it! More info -

Also, don't forget to check out the newest race in the H2H series on Sunday, August 18 - the Mountain Creek Summer Scramble. Spectators ride the lift for free, and the weather is going to be perfect so come on out and cheer (or heckle!) the racers, and then enjoy the post race awards and the biergarten! More info - . 

Have a great weekend everyone!

Greenwood Lake Air Show August 16-18 and Jungle Habitat

Reminder to anyone who is in the Jungle Habitat area this weekend - the Greenwood Lake Air Show is on next door to JH on August 16, 17, and 18. First off - the air show is a great event - everyone who goes loves it! However - if you were looking for a quiet ride in the woods this weekend, Jungle Habitat may not be your place. The air show uses the parking lot for parking, and the place will be swarming with people, planes, etc. The trails will be open to everyone as usual - it will just be noisier than usual! 

If you don't mind the noise - go for the two-fer - a ride and a great air show! For more info on the air show -

Trexlertown Velodrome road trip and Mountain Creek pre-rides

Couple of quick reminders - for anyone who would like to join TTC as we go out to Trexlertown, PA  for Friday night racing this Friday, August 16 at the Valley Preferred Cycling Velodrome- drop us a line ASAP, so we can reserve some seating at the finish line. We'll car pool as much as possible, and have a great evening seeing some cycling that we don't normally get to see in our neck of the woods! 

Also, our own Dave VW will be leading pre-rides of the Mountain Creek H2H race course this Wednesday and Thursday. Meet at the bike racks in front of the Red Tail Lodge at 5:30 p.m., and Mountain Creek will comp the lift ticket for the ride to the top! This venue is a great new addition to the Campmor H2H series - come see what all the excitement is all about. And Thursday, the biergarten is open late for beer, wings, and karoke - if you are brave!

Drop us a line with any questions - .

Pre-ride the H2H race course at Mountain Creek Tuesday 8/6, Thursday, 8/8 and Thursday 8/15

The Campmor H2H race series has an exciting new venue for the 2013 season - Mountain Creek Bike Park. Many people know Mountain Creek for their gravity events, but did you know they have a great cross country trail system as well? TTC's own David Van Wart has laid out the course for this race (race day is August 18), and will be leading pre-rides with Jeff Lenosky on Tuesday August 6th, Thursday August 8th (weather permitting), and Thursday, August 15th. We'll meet at 5:30 p.m. at the bike racks in front of the Red Tail Lodge. For those joining in on these pre-rides, Mountain Creek has generously offered free cross country lift tickets. And on Thursday, the Biergarten is open until 10 p.m. to enjoy some post ride beer and wings!

If you can't join us on either of these dates, a GPS file will be up on Tuesday for the course, and you can purchase a single use XC lift ticket for $7. Current JORBA members - bring your JORBA membership card and get a $3 discount on a single use ticket or $5 on a full access ticket - another great reason to join JORBA!

For those who are curious - on race day, all registered racers will receive an all day full access lift ticket as part of their registration fee. All spectators will receive a free pedestrian lift pass - no bikes, but free access to the start/finish area, feed zone, etc.

2 Road trips for August!

Hope you are enjoying this lovely break from the summer scorching temps! We have two fun events coming up - hope you will be able to join us.
