Presents the 4th Annual
Cranks Around the Campfire
Mountain Biking Festival
with Sponsors Princeton Tec and Vertical Earth Mt Sports
Back again is the area's premiere mountain biking camping festival! Northwest New Jersey is the place to be for a long weekend of mountain biking! Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced rides will be offered throughout the weekend and will explore the diverse terrain of Allamuchy State Park, Stephens SP, Deer Park SP, and the Mt. Allamuchy Scout Reservation. There will be skinnies to ride, a Huffy toss, a MTBNJ Mooch Madness race, bike polo, and much more!

Many off-the-bike events are planned for the whole family. Head to the dining hall for a double feature mtb movie night. Saturday night join your fellow bikers for a campfire at Council Point. Children can experience the outdoors with camp staff participating in nature hikes, fishing, handicrafts, waterfront activities, and much more.

The festival benefits youth mountain biking programs at the Mt. Allamuchy Scout Reservation.

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. Camping is in group sites which include picnic tables, fire rings, and tent platforms. Modern showers and bathrooms take some of the rough out of roughing it too!

For those looking for some competition, the crew at mtbNJ bring you the 3nd Annual Mooch Madness race. Come out and race on the area's best trails and stay to celebrate the sport of mountain biking all weekend long! Camping available to registered racers at a discounted rate. Link to race coming soon!
