The Jersey Off Road Bicycle Associations represents NJ’s mountain bikers. We advocate;
- All trails should be multi-use by default.
- That said, we support single use trails for a unique experience(s) e.g. the Appalachian Trail, or a bicycle flow trail
- All existing woods roads should be multi-use. This includes un-mapped double track.
- Existing trails and roads should be upgraded to be sustainable. If they can’t be made sustainable they should be re-routed to accomplish this.
- Existing trail networks should be reorganized into stacked loops. Initially by blazing if possible, additionally by adding new trails.
- Where possible trails and trail heads, should connect people, places and parks.
- Overnight camping along leave no trace ethics should be allowed and encouraged.
