Yeah, it's an early announcement but with kids having rock star schedules, it's important to get this on everyone's calendar and in as many frontal lobes as possible.
Get the kid's on those bikes and dreaming of shredding the Kid's Korse in the Hilltop Reservation. As always, the korse is always open for training, otherwise known as riding for fun with the kids. This is the only kid's mountain bike race in Essex county, take advantage of it!
(There's also an earlier kid's race at Allamuchy Scout Camp on June 1, check out Jersey Rocks Junior XC Race)
