Morris County - Tourne County Park

As identified in the meeting minutes from the Morris County Park Commission ( MCPC), off road cycling in the Tourne was being perceived as having a negative impact. The quoted excerpt from the minutes is as follows: "Acknowledging that off‐road bicycling is beginning to have a negative effect on the trails at the Tourne County Park" ( refer to the link below). The fact that this statement was recorded indicates that there was a unanimous agreement within the committee.

Helpful mountain biking info

The ride is about 4 miles long and both the child and parent/guardian have to come on the ride.

The first 25 kids to sign up recieve a free watter bottle from Specialized. If we get more then 25 kids then we have some Marty's Bottles that we can give them.

This is a great opportunity to pass your passion for pedaling on to kids. Let's get them out on the trails!

Hilltop Grasshopper 2013 Recap

Wow, what a great day it was for kid's bike racing in New Jersey.

Perfect weather conditions and a Kid's Korse that was totally groomed for flow.

WVP/Chimney Rock TM Wednesday 8/21 5.30pm

Get your Paydirt points or just good karma during the week. We scheduled a weeknight TM to try & get some people who can't make it out on the weekends. I hope those who do come out on the weekends will come out to help anyway.

Tools will be supplied. We will be walking to the work site. Bring gloves, some water to drink & bug spray (though we have extra if needed).

We are meeting at the Millers Lane lot.

Plan is to do a bunch of trimming/pruning on the Yellow trail. Things are a bit out of control over there.
