    I posted this on the other Jorba thread(Ooops)..

    All hail JORBA!!! The day was awesome and a huge success. Turnout was HUGE, and there was something for everyone. The vendors, music, Jeff L, demos, and especially the Group Rides rocked!...Even the little ones could practice on the skinnies on display. All in all; it felt good to be a Jersey Boy and enjoy the MTB community in our state this day....Until next year!

    Excellent Time

    My hats off to JORBA and all the supporting vendors, people, etc. etc. Excellent job. I arrived around 10 am and didn't leave until the final raffle and throughly enjoyed everything. I especially liked the intermediate rides at Stevens and Deer Pond (even if the orange trail was a nasty way to start.........) I must have put in over (5 )hours on the bike.

    It made me proud to be a JORBA member.

    Welcome aboard at JORBA. Our goals for the festival were:

    1. Fun for everyone from Advanced Riders to Beginners and Families with Kids
    2. Grow our JORBA Membership
    3. Get the JORBA name out into the public in a positive way
    4. Raise some funds for new tools and equipment
    5. Showcase New Jersey parks and the work JORBA has done in them

    I think we achieved all our goals. I'm glad we've inspired you to become a member!

    Joe

    I think there should be a seasonal JORBA festival. Maybe then my addiction to MTB'ing can be satiated.

    Hey I know I'm alittle late on this, but the JORBA festival was great! My fiance and I came with two of our friends and had a blast hitting the seven-mile loop (I believe it was through Stephen's State Park). I don't get to ride in Jersey much so it was a blast to check out the trails.

    I won;t lie, I tried to convince a vendor - who was giving prizes away for guessing the weight of your bike - to award me a Stumpjumper Comp. It didn't work. Oh well...I'll try again next year.

    I came up from Philly and I'm a member of the Philadelphia Mountain Bikers Association. We hold a festival called Rally in the Valley which is just like this. I love bike festivals and JORBA did an awesome job!

    Great time and I look forward to the next one.
