  • Mountain Creek Downhill Bike Park
    Exhilarating downhill action! Very little pedaling required; ascend via the skiing/snowboarding lift system :-) Fast, banked turns on many of the corners. Only the intermediate and expert trails have drops and jumps constructed on them, all of which are bypassable. Other "freeride" features include whoops and tabletops. There are also narrow, rocky (albeit improved) s-track trails with minimal/no built-up features. Challenging, but not nearly as physically demanding as Ringwood and Wawayanda, because your bike is always gravity powered. For XC MTB riders that are high intermediates and better. DH MTB bikes are available for rental, which includes full coverage helmets and body armor. If renting equipment, plan on arriving at the resort at least 45 mins earlier than when you plan to board the lift system. Alternatively, if staying on the beginner and intermediate trails, you can use your own dual suspension XC bike (135mm minimum fork travel need) and purchase only a lift ticket. In that case, make sure in advance, that your bike has no brake issues. And remember to bring a spare tube and tools. A full coverage helmet is highly recommended. There are full day and afternoon-only lift tickets available. Cheaper when purchased online instead of at the resort. Consider purchasing your lift ticket online to avoid a delay waiting in a queue at the resort. Until the end of the 2018 season (Nov 4th) MCBP's hours of lift operation are as follows: • Sat and Sun: 9 am - 6 pm • Fri: noon - 6 pm Remember to bring water, snacks, tick repellent. We will not ride here on marginal surface conditions. If it's slick, this ride will be cancelled on the night before the scheduled start. So check this web page for updates before leaving home. Car pooling arrangements can be made via posting to this page, or by contacting individual members via Meetup's messaging system. When you're ready to leave home, please post your ETA at this web page. And there is also cellular internet service at the parking lot for communicating via the message board below.

  • Intermediate level ride at Deer Park
    Meet at 10:45 am. Ride at 11:00 am. DON'T DRIVE TO THE NORMAL DEER PARK PARKING LOT!!!! PARK AT STEPHENS!!! SEE DIRECTIONS BELOW. We'll be riding about 11 miles in Deer Park starting at the gate on Kinney Road that is the normal start location for Stephens and going up the Orange Trail. I want to map out the route I'll use for the first half of the Marathon Sunday ride we do every year coming up at the beginning of November (not posted yet). Directions from Route 80 West bound: Take Exit 25 (Route 206 N toward Stanhope/Newton) Take the first right toward International Trade Center/Waterloo Village Follow the exit ramp around in a loop and make the first right on Continental Drive At the stop sign at the end of Continental Drive, turn left on Waterloo Road Follow Waterloo Road for roughly 2 miles. During this 2 miles, you will pass Waterloo Village, the Boy Scout Camp entrance, and go under the Route 80 overpass. Kinney Road will be on the left (I don't think there is a street sign.) Turn left there, drive over the small bridge and park near the big gate on the left. Don't block the gate unless you want to risk getting a ticket!

    Exhilarating downhill action! Very little pedaling required; ascend via chairlift :-) Fast, banked turns on many of the corners. Only the intermediate and expert trails have drops and jumps constructed on them, all of which are bypassable. Other "freeride" features include whoops and tabletops. There are also narrow, rocky (albeit improved) s-track trails with minimal/no built-up features. Challenging, but not physically demanding like the rock gardens of Ringwood, because your bike is nearly always gravity powered. For XC MTB riders that are high intermediates and better. Vertical relief 1082 ft ! Even just 4 hrs of DH riding here is plenty for a day. More intermediate terrain than at Mountain Creek Bike Park. September hours of lift operation: 10am - 4:45pm. Full day lift pass: $40. Or, just 1pm to 6pm: $27. DH bike rental, plus protective gear (including armor and full coverage helmet): $99. If renting equipment, plan on arriving at the resort at least 45 mins earlier than when you plan to board the chairlift. Alternatively, if staying on the beginner and intermediate trails, you can use your own dual suspension XC bike (135mm minimum fork travel recommended) and purchase only a lift ticket.
