Mt. Bike Ride at Mahlon Dickerson Reservation
Saffon Pond Parking Lot – Jefferson Twp. NJ
May 10th 2014 – 10AM
Come & join our fourth ride @ Mahlon. We’ll break the ride into various groups providing rides for all levels. Some loops will be gentle double tracks with a bit of climbing & a just few rocks here & there. Nothing too crazy. Others will be a little more technical & for the more adventurous. We can also do some awesome fun technical trails. All ages welcome – you pick the ride you want.
There are only a few rules –
1) Wear a helmet & bike gloves.
2) Hybrids won’t be able to handle these trails very well. We have some extra bikes. You just need to let me know if you need one.
3) Bring water or a sports drink, a couple energy bars and a spare tube.
4) Eat a decent breakfast .(but don’t stuff yourself) at least an hour before you get to the park. Shredded Wheat, Eggs, Oatmeal – all good stuff. Stay away from meats.
After the ride, we’ll go to Charlie’s Tavern for some food & drinks. After that, all are welcome back at my place on Lake Hopatcong for more brews & maybe some water sports, weather permitting.
That’s about it. There will be enough experienced riders to help the less experienced riders with tips and whatever support is needed.
Any questions, you can give Chuck Emery a call @ 973-723-5358. Hope to see a bunch of you @ Mahlon.
Directions – Take Rte 15 No. 5 miles from Rte 80 to Weldon Rd. exit. – No exit sign, but there’s a small Mahlon Dickerson Park sign on the right (Just beyond the light @ the Getty & Quickchek, 2nd exit on the right). Go about 3 miles along Weldon & the Saffon Lot is on your right. Very visible from the road.
Hope to see you there.
