NJ Mountain Bike Challenge

We may not be able to have the festival this year, but we want to keep the stoke going with a virtual alternative from Trailforks. We’ll spread some swag, have a little fun and introduce some of you to the work JORBA does to make mountain biking possible in NJ. Complete the challenges and get a JORBADGE, each JORBADGE is a chance to win some swag.

JORBADGES are free to earn, but sending swag all over NJ is expensive, if you want a chance to win some swag, it’ll cost you $10.

Setup Trailforks App and Login

If you haven’t already done so, download the Trailforks app to your phone, create a Trailforks account, and log in to the app from your phone.

Track Your Rides

In the Trailforks app log each ride you make between September 27th and October 31st. Or you can use Strava.

The more JORBADGES you earn, the better your odds!
