    Newbie in Somerset County, NJ Seeking other novice riders

    This is my first year riding a mountain bike and tomorrow, 5/17, will be my first real ride. Going to ride trails at 6 mile run in Franklin Township (Somerset County) NJ.

    If there are other novice riders out there who'd like to join me tomorrow at a future date shoot me a private message.

    ^^^ yeah. Local shops generally have a big network of riders of all skill levels, often due to them having done regular group rides for various skill levels. They also know all the good places to ride. They welcome all whether they bought a bike there or not. Of course, CV19 has put a damper on all this, but you can still contact them and see what they have to say or what resources they can point you toward (FB, etc as rangerriderdave mentions). Just say hey, I'm a new rider and looking for places and people to ride with...
