    Anyone in NNJ wanna get a weekly ride together?

    I love riding with people, and i want to get a weekly ride going, i dont really care where as long as its off pavement and i'm touching pedals.

    so who MIGHT be in?

    we should get a phone list of NNJ riders and a list of generally available times so when people want to ride they stand a chance of knowing who is available.

    that said: I'm available most days and weekends for a ride, weekdays i get home from work about 5:30ish, weekends i might be up by noon but could be convinced to get up earlier if i know we're gonna ride.

    weekly ride

    I ride every Saturday and Sunday mornings....but I ride early. 7:15am is usually my meeting time. Ringwood & Allamuchy mostly...but go to other areas in NY & NJ occasionally when I have the opportunity. Always welcome to come....but sounds like you don't like to get up early. :-)

    Next week is not do-able for me but maybe the week after I'd be able to do Mills, where do you meet?

    Eagle

    Nice. I'd try riding there at night but I'm running new Lupines which I think all of Essex Cty would see me. I feel like Giants Stadium during a Monday night game. If the fuzz busted me and took my bike and my lights I wouldnt be happy. How is it in there, havent rode that place in years.

    i just rode mills this morning at 6:30 am. trails look pretty rugged, no washouts as far as i can tell. go for it. be sure to say hi to everyone you pass.
    every thread needs an uploaded image of one kind or another.

    The reservation is a popular place for locals to walk their dogs. In fact, the park is referred to as "ringworm reservation" by some local pet clinics, who ask their clients not to walk their dogs there. Bicycles are prohibited on all trails (including fireroads). But, all of the parks are that way in Essex County. The penalty, as someone told me, is $500 fine and impound of the bike. Most people say that the local police don't care, but I've seen police waiting in the North parking lot at 5:30 AM during a road ride a few months back. Some people have also said that dog-walkers will call police on their cell phones when they see bikers. Not sure if this is true, but riding the trails when they are wet is a certain way to piss off someone. In the same way, the more bikers that ride there during hours that coincide with dog-walking are increasing the chance that the police will up the enforcement of the county rules.

    i think the fine is only 100, and they CAN impound your bike.

    ive come across lots of hikers/dog walkers. I always slow down or stop and greet them nicely. if you can stay on good terms with the people who go there, they wont call any police..i can only see someone doing that if you are really riding like a jackass. also, most of the trails good for bikes do not have hikers and dog walkers they mostly stick to the fire roads
