MCI - Dual Sport Event - 2/23/2014 - First ECEA Event of the Year!

Please come join us for a nice winter ride in the forests of the New Jersey Pines Barrens. The course will be a great mix of what the Pines has to offer.

So, this is the perfect time for you to learn how to use your GPS . You can always rely on the arrows for backup as your learning how to navigate off-road with your gps.

couldn't use the Garmin gdb file for some reason (I have city nav NA v.8) but the gpx file was just fine.

Hopefully enough people will ride it that it'll become single track and won't need much trimming. Since it is a state road maybe the state will trim it .

i too had problems loading the .gdp file. appears that it was created in a version greater than 2.0 of mapsource.
is there anyway to get you to save a file in an earlier version than what you are running?
on mine you can do save as and then under the save as type i can choose ver 1 or ver 2

SE PA sand-virgins now have route!

Thanks for pulling all this together Rob. I have been telling all my sand-virgin buddies what a great time I had on the PB500 this year. I now have some of them interested in seeing for themselves if it is as fun as I say. I was originally thinking that they would like Day 2 of the PB500. (Not too strenuous and not too much sand.) However, some of them want to try this on their street bikes, and I'm thinking that the PB500 route will be too hard.

I have been looking at the tnjt_v1 route south of Hammonton, and it looks like it covers a lot of the same area as day 2 of PB500. Would you consider the tnjt to be an easier ride than day 2 of the PB500? I don't want to blow their simple cave man brains on their first excursion into the wilds of NJ. We are looking at the first weekend in Nov.

Thanks,

Joe S.

Section 7 would be easy enough. Section 6 can be tricky mostly because of the mud holes, tighter two track roads and some gps navigational challenges. If you're good with a gps you can always bypass the tough sections. Section 5 would be a good introduction to sand; for me it's easy for a sand noob it may be hell on earth?

Regardless of which section you ride it's all fun!

question about section 5.1

I have a question about section 5.1. I believe designed by GerryNJ. I hope you know something that I dont. There is a section of trail that goes thru the Lakehurst NAV (naval base). I ride in that section of Colliers Mills all the time and I dont believe you can get thru that last 2 mile section before it merges onto RT539. When going down that trail there are huge signs that say Military Base Do Not Enter followed by arrest, prosecution, blah blah blah. Some sections surrounding the base are fenced off, I cant recall if that one is though?

I only ask this question because I thought the TNJT was supposed to be fully dual sport legal. Do you ride that last stretch of trail? Or am I just being a pansy by not going past DO NOT TRESPASS signs? I understand that on Google maps satellite view there is a trail that runs straight thru, but Ive never been able to go any further.

Do you live close to there? Thats my midweek stomping grounds, maybe we should get together for some rides. I dont have GPS so most of my adventures entail getting lost or stuck for a good length of time, but the fun is o-plenty. There are some much nicer/narly trails within that little state park then you can see on the map. Sand and woops experience is a must if you get off the beaten path. I really need to find a riding partner, riding by yourself can get dangerous.

To get the original TNJT route set to load on my eTrex Legend, I had to massage it a bit in Mapsource. I combined two of the routes into other routes to get it down to the 20-route limit for the GPS. If it gets too much bigger I might have to split it up between two GPSes, or upgrade my GPS technology.
Couldn't fit it into my GPS either... I am going to try converting the route into a loadable map tonight then attempt following the line.
Looking foward to riding
