Ride should be about 3 hours and will regroup at the top of the climbs. Bring your climbing legs and aero helmet and throw down with the group!

However, if you were looking for a nice quiet ride at Jungle Habitat this weekend - this may not be your weekend. The air show will be using the lot for parking (and charging for it!), so plan accordingly. 
  • Also, the West Milford Family Pump Track will be closed August 15-17 because of the air show - so take the kids to the air show instead, and use one of our other local parks for your rides this weekend!
