Product should arrive in August. After the July 8th deadline, you will be able to order, but you will pay all the shipping costs. So take advantage of this window and get both your summer and winter items now!

New for this order - racers, get your Carrera suits! Also new for 2014 - TTC hoodies! Made out of the Winter Traffo material, it's a great way to show your TTC love in a more casual and relaxed way. See our esteemed VP David K. modeling the hoodie ...

Parking location change for Clinton Road rides effectively immediately!

For many years, we've been fortunate to park at the "satellite" lot at the intersection of Rt. 23 and Clinton Rd for our famous (or are they infamous?) TTC Clinton Rd. road rides. However, due to a change of ownership, that lot is no longer available to us. 

Fortunately, we've been able to find something close by to serve our needs. The United Methodist Church, 65 La Rue Rd, Newfoundland, NJ 07435 has very generously offered to allow us to park in their lot for both our Wednesday night Ladies Only rides as well as our Friday night rides. There may be other people using the lot at the times we will be there, so they have asked that we park to the left of the driveway or in the area facing the road to the right of the driveway in order to minimize any inconveniences to their members. 

We at TTC are extremely grateful to the UMC of Newfoundland for their hospitality, and hope you'll all join us in thanking them! Also a big thanks to TTC's Steve Boshart for helping to get the wheels rolling with his connections - Steve's the man!

Hike in Beacon, NY on June 7

TTC member Tom B. will be leading a hike out of Beacon NY on Saturday, June 7. The weather looks perfect! Here's his itinerary - 
    • A 2 to 3 hour hike at Breakneck Ridge (first hour or so a steep uphill climb with lots of rock scrambling and incredible views of the Hudson Valley, the rest downhill on normal trails). For info about parking, trails, etc., take a look at this link. Tom will not be doing the full loop outlined on that link - he will head up the White Trail, but down a different route - about 5-6 miles in total. 
    • Lunch somewhere in Beacon 
    • Dessert at Zora Dora's - amazing creamsicles and popsicles (maybe 40 flavors!).
Two meeting places possible - 8:30 a.m. at the Home Depot in Riverdale (meet at the end of the lot closest to Staples) - Tom will leave promptly at 8:30, so don't be late! For those who want to meet in Beacon, meet at the trailhead parking lot at 9:45 a.m. Hike will step off at 10 a.m. 

For what it is worth, there is an MTA stop just north of the parking lot.  It seems to be there strictly for hikers, as it does not appear to have its own parking lot.
Tom's email is tom@bowmaster.us, and his cell is 201-787-7365. If you are planning on meeting Tom at Home Depot, please email him and let him know. You can RSVP to Tom or us to let us know if you are coming - this way Tom will know to wait for you. Sounds like an awesome day of hiking (and popsicles!) - we can't wait! 

Any questions - feel free to get in touch with Tom or us.
