We're headed south! Mountain biking at Allaire State Park. Sunday, March 2

Before our next round of snow in this soul sucking winter, we're headed south to Allaire State Park to ride our mountain bikes! If you've never been, it's a great place to ride for all levels - there's something there for everyone, and terrain unlike our usual northern rock gardens. 

We'll meet at the parking lot on Hospital Road at 9:30, and ride for a few hours. It's approximate 1.5 hours from West Milford, so plan accordingly. Conditions will be cold, but trail reports say that there is almost no snow there, and with the ground mostly frozen, it should make for some good riding - a nice change from the road bike and the trainer! 

As always, any questions - email us at

Badminton is on for Saturday, February 22

No snow storm to interfere this weekend - come join us at NJ Badminton in Montville for a friendly game of badminton! No prior experience necessary - bring some sneakers (try to bring a pair that you haven't worn in the salt and grit in the street) and prepare for a good time!

Cross Country Skiing in New Paltz on Sunday, 2/23

The weather gods look like they are going to co-operate this weekend, so we're off to go cross country skiing at Lake Minnewaska in New Paltz this Sunday, February 23. You will need to provide your own equipment, including day packs with snacks/lunch.  We will meet at 9 a.m. at Oakland Bagel, 347 Ramapo Valley Rd., Oakland, NJ and organize from there.  Ski time will be about 4-5 hours. Weather looks to be partly sunny and close to 50 degrees - can't beat that for cross country skiing! 

As always, any questions - 

Edited to add: TTC's Diana let us know that Rock and Snow in New Paltz rents equipment - no need to invest big bucks. Thanks Diana!

Winter weekend fun

A little chilly for most cycling, but we've got lots of other fun in the pipeline!  
  • Saturday badminton at NJ Badminton in Montville at 4 p.m. It's going to be cold, might as well go have fun inside! 
  • Sunday, February 9, we will be going cross country skiing up at the High Point Cross Country Ski Center . Meet us at 10 a.m. and dress warmly - should be fun! Check their website for info about tickets, rentals, etc. 
  • An annual TTC favorite in the past, the Banff Mountain Film Festival will be held on February February 25 and 26th. Several TTC members are planning on going on the 26th, but go whenever you can - it's always a great event! Get your tickets in advance if you can - this is a popular show. 
  • A non-cycling, great family event supporting a great cause - and it will be warm by then! On June 8, the American Cancer Society's George Washington Bridge Challenge will take place. Your choice of 5K or 10K walk or run - and you can't beat the views or the cause! Entry fee is 20% off until March 1 - don't delay! If someone registers and starts a Team Town Cycle team, let us know - we'll get the word out! 
Stay tuned for more updates - and stay warm!
