May 2nd JORBA Group Ride at Baldpate Mountain

Postby mare45 » Mon Apr 26, 2010 7:05 am

Woo hoo! It's our 2nd ride in the JORBA Ride Series and it's going to be fun.

9:00 AM
Pleasant Valley Parking Area (Directions: http://www.mtbnj.com/wiki/Baldpate_Mountain)

Be prepared for climbs, downhills, and rocky terrain.

We are hoping for great weather and a great turnout! Nothing like stating the obvious, huh? So, who’s in??

Contact me at mare@jorba.org with any questions.

Hey

Thanks for putting that fun run together. The downhills, single tracks, and even the fireroads were awesome. I enjoyed pushing my bike up some hills very much.

I want to go again real soon. Can somone who went on the ride and knows the park give an idea as to what trails we took so I can make it around again? Also, what trails not to take.

thanks
A

Oh yeah,

Is there another route that doesnt have so many enjoyable climbing tortures or do I just have to stop eating so much?

I don't know the park well, so I have to let someone else tell you what route we did. I do believe that climbing is part of that place though, so you are out of luck if you want less climbing :)

This is somewhat related. I just did a solo ride at Baldpate and loved it. However, I'm confused regarding what trails are for MTB. I rode white, red, orange, and yellow. Yellow is super cool and flows like butter, but seems to be under construction. At least I think so, because I ended up in someone's backyard. Are any trails or sections off-limits to bikes? Great work trail crew!!! I hope to join you soon!!!
