Announcing a new Meetup for The NJ Biking, Eating & Drinking Group!

What: MTB 101 Ride - For Beginners

When: Sunday, April 25,[masked]:00 PM

Mercer County Park
334 S Post Rd
West Windsor, NJ

Interested in trying a little off road pedaling but nervous about going out alone? Come on this ride. We'll start off with a basic overview with some tips and safe riding techniques and then head out onto the Mercer trails. There are some great trails for beginners here, no crazy hills, log piles, bridges or any of the other crazy things you can find at other parks. Just easy, winding trails with packed dirt and a little mud.

You'll need a bike with knobby tires for road bikes. And for mountain bike rides, we do require's just safer that way. You probably won't need it on this type of ride but better safe than sorry. Gloves, water and snacks are also recommended.

This will be about a 2-3 hour ride. Advanced riders are welcome if you want to help out the beginners, but please be aware, this will be a slow pace with lots of stops to wait for any stragglers.

Just kidding about the picture!! :)
