2017 Racing Season

Race 1: Wild West Windsor

Mercer County Park: Hughes Dr & Paxson Ave, West Windsor, NJ  08550 (enter park here, make first left off Paxson to Parking Lot #2)

Sunday, April 2, 2017

Welcome to Wild West Windsor, time to put yourself and your legs to the test, and shake off the winter cobwebs. Mercer County Park is no stranger to competition, having served as a venue for olympic rowing, cyclo-cross races and more. Get ready for a fun day of racing on some single-track that’s fast, flowy and twisty without much climbing.

Race 2: Quick, Slick Six – p/b Halter’s Cycles

Six Mile Run: 102 Jacques Lane, Somerset, NJ  08873

Sunday, April 23, 2017

The NICA course features a fun mix of twisty, punchy single track and power-on stretches of double track. Not a huge amount of climbing (only around 250’ per lap), but definitely enough for you to feel a good sting in your legs.

Race 3: Morris Mania

Lewis Morris Park: Sunrise Lake Drive, Morristown, NJ  07960

Sunday, May 7, 2017

The course is a mix of 1/3 double track, 2/3 sweet flowing single track. The High School loop is 3.7 miles long with 450 feet of climbing, each Middle School lap is 2.6 miles with 270 feet of climbing. That’s definitely the most climbing of any course we have raced on so far this season, so be sure to bring your climbing legs.

Race 4: Gloucester Gasser

Rowan College at Gloucester County: 1400 Tanyard Road, Sewell, NJ  08080

Sunday, May 21, 2017

We will be racing on the Gloucester County College trail system that has hosted many a cross country running race. This venue features a huge infield, ample parking, and a course that loops back to the infield area part-way through the loop which will make for great spectating. The course consists mostly of twisty single-track with lots of short and punchy climbs, along with stretches of double-track and grassy areas.

Race 5: Chester Championship Challenge

Highland Ridge Park: 50-120 North Road, Chester, NJ  07930

Sunday, June 4, 2017

Highland Ridge Park is the perfect venue to wrap up our inaugural NICA racing season – beautiful vistas and a great mix of fun single and double track on the grounds that used to be the home of AT&T’s Bell Labs (be sure to check out the telephone pole farm by the entrance). The High School lap is 3.5 miles long with over 470 feet of climbing (ouch), and the Middle School lap is no slouch either at 2.6 miles and 390 feet of climbing.
