    Back for its 7th year! Its the Cranks Around the Campfire Mt Biking Festival Weekend!

    Northwest New Jersey is the place to be for a long weekend of mountain biking action! Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced rides will be offered twice a day and will explore the diverse terrain of Allamuchy, Stephens, and Deer Park. There will be activities all weekend for the whole family with children's activities scheduled to enable parents to join the group rides!

    Mt Allamuchy Scout Reservation is the ideal spot for the festival. Just minutes from Rt. 80, the camp is easy to get to and at the same time located on a 900 acre parcel of forest that has been preserved for decades under the ownership of the BSA. The camp is easily navigated by forest road and all campsites can be accessed by car. The campsites are group style so you can pitch your tent wherever you like. You are free to choose seculusion or form a tent city with all your riding buddies.

    The camp is located in the center of Allamuchy North, Stephens, and Deer Park Mountain biking trail networks. Riders can access Allamuchy North directly from camp. Stephens is across the street from us and Deer Park just a couple minutes down the road by bike. Cranks is a great opportunity to learn new trails in these 3 parks. In addition to all the singletrack in the 3 parks, our camp contains miles of singletrack and jeep roads to explore. There are trails for every age and skill level. Join us for night rides each night on the reservation. We will have some lights to borrow provided by sponsor Princeton Tec.

    Many off-the-bike events are planned for the whole family. Head to the dining hall Friday night for a double feature mtb movie night. On Saturday night grab your favorite beverage and join your fellow campers for a Beach Party BBQ at the waterfront. There will be free Hotdogs and Hamburgers. After the party, chill out at the bonfire. Children can experience the outdoors with camp staff participating in group rides, nature hikes, fishing, geo-caching, handicrafts, waterfront activities, and much more. The waterfront will be open for swimming at select times.

    The festival benefits youth mountain biking programs at the Mt. Allamuchy Scout Reservation. In the summer of 2014 the BSA added mt biking as part of the cycling merit badge. Each summer, Camp Somers introduces at least a hundred kids to the sport of mountain biking. Each youth by the end of the week is cruising singletrack in Allamuchy and Stephens State Parks. Help us expand our program to offer this opportunity to both Scouts and the general public on weekends throughout year.

    Admission to the festival is free for youths under 18 years old. Please no pets on reservation property. If you'd like to bring a small RV please contact us to make arrangements. We have water and electric hookups.

    Save money and register online!

    Online registration ends August 20th. Day of registration available. All participants must sign in upon arrival and sign waiver and pick up parking permit.

    Under 18 always free with registered paying adult!

    FEES:

    Weekend Camping $60 (includes free firewood) (Day of $75)
    Weekend Day Pass $30 (Day of $45)
    Day Pass Friday $10 Saturday and Sunday $15


    Still have questions? Please contact us anytime! We look forward to hearing from you.

    The Cranks organizers are expanding our child watch program for this year's event. If you are unfamiliar with this its a real standout from other mountain biking festivals. On Saturday and Sunday we will offer 2 group ride sessions; one AM and one PM. All level rides will be offered. During the AM rides, riders with kids 4 and up can attend the rides while their kids are in different activities. The staff is professionally trained and experienced with youths so no need to worry about the kids just enjoy the ride!

    Throughout the years many festival attendees have become staff because of their passion for the event. We are always looking for extra help and if you want to volunteer please PM me!

    No retail vendors this year. Definitely something that may be added in the future.
