    Great ride at Six Mile

    Rode Six Mile for the first time today with a great group of people. With all the rain,mud, and river crossings it was still a great time...

    Yea it was fun to ride wit new people and to share yer park wit other people. Despite it being very slick, it offered an additional challenge tonight. Come back when it's a lil dryer and we have more time to rid eht other side as well.

    Thanks again to all of you guys. I had a great time and look forward to riding with you all again. I hope next time there is just a little less mud and water.

    Great ride last night! Hail, pouring rain, falling trees, mud, overflowing streams. It was a fun group and I'm glad everyone made it out, despite the weather. We'll do it again when its dry. Like Dirty Bert said, it was fun showing you all the trails. Fun stuff.............

    I was thinking about you guys last night. I live in B'water and around 3pm the sky opened up and flooded 202 in a matter of minutes. I would have bet the farm there was gonna be no ride at 6 mile. Good for you though. Glad you had a good time.
    BTW, I went to the doc for a shot for poison ivy rash I picked up last Saturday while riding there. Some day soon I've got to figure out what that stuff looks like, cause I'm real allergic to it!

    Wow

    You all rode yesterday?!?! I was thinking about joining the fun, but when I saw the weather in turn horribly bad around 3, I was like - oh no no no.

    Glad you all had fun - hopefully I'll catch up with you next time.

    Anyone interested in riding Chimney Rock or Six Mile tomorrow AM (like 10ish)?

    <Edit> Tomorrow meaning Sunday.....

    I made the attempt to ride with you guys, I thought leaving my house at 5 would give me more than enough time to get there buy 6. When I got to rt18, it was a parking lot, in both directions. Even the secret side roads out to Rt 1 were all jammed up. Then, round 2 of the storms came and I said F it, maybe next time.

    Glad you all had a good time, its just going to take 6 mile about 6 months to dry out now.

    Yeah, the flooded out river crossing was great! A big thanks to wobbegong and dirty bert for showing us the way. I can't wait to get back out there again when it's dry.

    I was there today and if not for the few unavoidable mud puddle crossings, it wasn't bad. Even the water crossings were at normal level. A few trees were laying down. Instead of a water bottle cage I could have used a chainsaw holster.

    WOW TommyJay got it right! I can't belive everyone went out last night! It's usually prety bad there in the Spring with the thaw and rain. Most of thtetime unridable and trail damaging. But I'm glad everyone had a great time! Nice to get new people into the woods. Everytime I'm out there with my frieds, it's hard to believe that we're still in Jeresy in the there. Anyway, since it's had time to dry off, I waas thining a little earlier tomorrow, something like 9:00 but who knows. Any takers? If not Everyone....Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!!

    Fast and dry

    Just road Six mile and it was great. Had a wonderful guide and boy was he fast. We did 12 miles of some great singletrack. Most of it was dry with very few slick spots.

    I was planning to ride today (either Six Mile or Chimney Rock) today just after lunch time (like 1ish) if anyone is interested. I usually ride at a relatively laid back easy to moderate pace, but am willing to adjust (within my cardio ability) to suit.

    Let me know if you're interested.

    Guess I'll try again

    Just got back from Chimney rock. Great ride - trails are in excellent shape, and I pretty much had the place to myself.

    Rode the blue loop perimeter, the red loop perimeter, took the white trail over to the park, picked up the short piece of yellow to Gilbride, rode across the top of the orange trail, down the switchback, and then back up to the red and did most of the perimeter loop again.

    I hope to be able to make it to one of the group rides soon. My schedule isn't the most flexible between work and home though.

    Waited until 4:15, then headed out solo. Maybe next time we'll get something together.

    Trails are in fantastic condition.

    I can ride on Monday but it has to be around 7:30-8:00... I can pretty much ride anywhere as long as its a pretty good group. Allaire would be nice to get a few hours of riding in. But I would like to ride with a group.

    was actually thinking a 10am, never been there, want to see the sights ride. No hammerfest, just a fun ride with my usual gang of misfits and whomever we collect along the way.

    I'll give you the full tour, hopefully the newborn won't pull an all nighter, thats the only thing that would keep me from making it. I'll plan for 10 am. Intermediate social pace sounds good.

    Driving Directions

    Hi gt2brew! I was going to ride with ya guys, but I rode Blue Mt Campmor H2H race course and I'm toast. I'm working in the area and the easiest way to get there from down south is: Parkway North to exit 105 (Route 18), take it to Brunswick and exit Route 1 South, go some miles until you see the "Cozzens Lane" exit. Take it and proceed to Route 27. It will end with a WaWa on your left,...make a left turn and proceed 500 yards. The Rutgers soccer field and parking lot will be on your right. Parking in the corner. You will have a great time there.

    good stuff

    Mega fun showing the troops around today. The black bean burritos hit the spot too.

    If you see any more "xtreme-mtbers" out there without helmets pleas give them hell.. or at least heck.

    Not to sound like a nanny but we don't need any busted skulls ruining our limited NJ trail access.

    Nice ride today. Thanks for letting me tag along. Two things I've learned not to trust about mountain bikers: Start time and planned pace. JDog did a nice job of getting us out of the parking lot on schedule, but he's way to fast to keep us at the non-hammerfest pace that Frank lured me in with. I almost got dropped heading from the car to the trailhead.

    Was very entertained by some of the quick wit of my fellow riders. Best line of the day was a response to Frank's declaring the ride a big three thumbs up, with "More like two thumbs up and a little pinky".

    Sorry I missed the burritos post ride. Next time,,,I'll allocate the extra time and bring along a cooler for post ride refreshments. Nice meeting everyone.

    You can't put a leash on that dog....sadly it was his non hammerfest pace.

    I guess I wasn't that happy.

    Great ride today! Only seconds until someone crashed, thats a sign of a good ride. Maybe next time me and J will call out stuff before it happens, not after

    Sorry if my "Intermediate social pace" statement wasn't what was expected. Blame it on Jdog , his skills run thick!

    I'm happy everyone enjoyed the park, and the post ride food and beer. Hope to do it again soon.

    6 mile mayhem

    I think that was a record for me. In 18 years of riding, I have never crashed that quickly. ( I think under 5 seconds into the ride I was up side down in the thorns) Oh and the line was two thumbs and a lap pinkie up.The entire ride was outstanding and much thanks to all who made the ride and the great trails for us to ride on. The entire park was a blast, and the pace was not overly fast. I think after a few more visits it will be easier for us to keep up. Having an idea of whats ahead is always helpful. I will try to ride this place again soon.
