Friend him, then click about.

No sending the files---route facilitator, Rob, reserves the right to do that.

Stages 4 and 5

With my new beemer, and fairly new to biking overall, I'd snuck out over the last week or so to fairly sedately ride small sections of section 3. With some more time I thought I'd start at section 4 and head south.

There are some bridges out and road closures (at least one permanent) in section 4. Who/how do I tell so the files get updated? One is at 40.19.52n 74.46.07w and the other 40.18.50n and 74.40.59w (this second one is permanent I think).

Wow. Once you hit section 5 it's turns up to 11. I definitely took wrong turns in the woods and quickly went from hard packed sandy dirt roads to soft rutted sand dual track that was piled 10-12" high. After yesterday's snow/rain, there were some epic mud sections too. Lots of good practice at a variety of techniques (including dragging the bike out of suction mud!).

Did 175 miles, didn't see a single dual sport rider all day.

I'll keep going south tomorrow. What an amazing route, thanks for stitching it together guys.

The second bridge was taken out by Hurricane Irene. I rode through there the weekend after Irene, and saw the carnage on Quaker Road firsthand. There is a fairly easy bypass around the section, just take Princeton Pike south to Province Line Road.

I've still got some unfinished riding to do down that way from that trip. Started having electrical problems on the bike near the end of Section 5, so I haven't done anything farther south than that. I think a weekend trip is in order.

If you don't have a Facebook account I suggest you send a PM (private message) to Rob23 and plead your case for why you don't aire your life for all to see online, plus see pictures of weddings and babies of long lost 'friends', pictures of food and toes, and Kittens!. Or just generally why you don't want to give up your privacy and join the 21st century (j/k : )

Seriously though, Rob23 is the only person that can send them to you, they are his files, and it's up to him if he wants to make an exception.

If you get them, let me know if you want to ride it sometime.


Oh and Welcome to the board, you'll find friendly people here (most of us) and lots of good info. (I don't want my response to your first post to be too harsh )

Not an exact substitute, but when you apply for and receive the TET file, you get a file called "TET_NJ_V2alpha", which is similar, and follows some of the same route.

Ideally get both!

I'll just say what I am sure others are thinking. Frankly, its a little sketchy that you join, and this is your one and only post. You also have no information filled out in your profile. So, you are one of two things:

1. Someone who just wants to take, and not give at all. No sharing of information, no posting about your motorcycles, etc. Rob put a lot of time & effort into this TNJT, and continues to give to motorcyclists, mountain bikers, and local clubs.
2. Someone who is not interested in motorcycling at all, and has negative intentions about using the information in the TNJT.

I hope I am off base and am sorry if I am, but I have been dealing with human nature for almost 40 years, so.....

Glad to find this active TransNJ trail thread!

Hello All!!!!!

I have been lurking around the TransNJ trail threads and am glad to have found this active thread. I have sent a "friend request" to Rob so I hope to get access to the gps files soon.

While I live in Texas, my son and I are planning a late May multi day trip loop starting in Princeton, NJ and getting in as much dirt as possible. We much prefer mountains to piney sands as we have plenty of flat sand in SE texas! This will be our first multi-day trip.

Someone else can chime in too, but from what I understand, there is much more offroad( non-paved anyway) sections south from your Princeton start point then there is north. BUT, it is sandy and flat. I understand the northern sections to be less offroad stuff, but there is hilly areas up there. Coming from growing up in northern NJ, I would not say any of it is mountains.

Got The Track, Now What to Expect on Trans New Jersey Trail?

I downloaded both the AT tracks and the TNJT tracks (Thanks Rob!!!!).

Before I finalize our route I need to make sure I am on the right "track". This will be our first multi day adventure ride. Normally, we haul our Wr250r and CRF250L to enduro rides and National forests in Texas OR to Saluda, NC where we ride mostly paved mountain roads. When on a more pavement oriented ride I normally ride the KLR650 and he stays on the WR250r. Both have 50/50 dual sport tires (TKC80s on KLR and Michelin T63s on the WR). He has about 5 days off so we decided to ride in NJ rather than spending half his vacation traveling to/from North Carolina. We prefer gravel but are fine with pavement if we typically travel at 45mph or less. We can go up to 70mph for short stretches but with the lack of wind protection the buffeting gets old fast. We have a trailer for the bikes but prefer to start this adventure without having to trailer them somewhere.

With all that said and after reading the previous ride reports I hope the following assumptions are accurate.... Can any one confirm?

How fast is the typical speed on pavement on the northern half of the trail? I am assuming less than 45mph most of the time.

I assume most of the Northern half of the TNJT roads are interesting even at speeds of 30 - 40mph?

I am thinking that the TNJT roads are small enough that most folks find traveling them at 10-30-45 mph is a comfortable pace?

For scheduling purposes, would the average speed transversing the top half (TNJT100 tracks) be about 25mph? Some of the ride reports showed average traveling speeds between 25 and 30mph but I think that was on the southern sections.

Following TNJT100 from Princeton to the Start Point up North gives me about 340miles each way following the tracks. I noticed that the tracks don't follow the road curves so will be shorter than actual mileage traveled. However, if I create a road following ROUTE I get 600+ miles. Suppose 450 miles each way will be what happens on the bike odometer?

If we do out and back that is about 700-900 miles or 30 hours of riding at 30mph average. Therefore we are planning on 5-6 hours of riding per day for 5 days. Does all this sound reasonable?

Thanks in advance for any clarification and suggestions you can provide.

Posted in the right area?

Geeze I am feeling like quite the noob with all these questions. I hope the above "planning" post is in the correct thread. If not, I would appreciate a suggestion on where I should be posting.
