Take a break from your holiday preparations and come join a WJW tradition to celebrate the Winter Solstice. We'll leave from the Columbia Trail parking lot and ride up to Califon and back -- a total of about 10 miles. This will be a casual pace ride and is intended for off-road bikes -- hybrids, cyclocross or mountain bikes only. Afterwards we'll go to Casa Maya in High Bridge for dinner. Beer will be provided by the club. Helmets required. It will be getting dark towards the end of the ride, so front/rear lights are required.

Winter Cycling

Too many cyclists hang up their bikes at the first sign of snowflakes. They’re missing out: As your body struggles to stay warm in the cold, you not only burn more calories, but your body also learns to use oxygen much more efficiently, according to research from Northern Arizona University. Most importantly, riding around in the snow can be incredibly fun. This is what you should—and shouldn’t—do to make the most of your winter cycling season.

I LOVE riding in Hunterdon County! The plateau in Kingwood to the rolling hills in Readington. Sometimes a challenge, but always beautiful scenery!

Kurt Grabfelder:

I appreciate being a club member because it makes it much easier to get riders together for a group ride.  Riding with a group is safer and, I think, it brings out the best effort in you.  I like associating with like minded people who are interested in biking, fitness and nutrition.
