    Default The Dirt Merchant

    A very cool short film just popped up on my Facebook feed. Many of you Mid-Atlantic and New Englanders will be familiar with Jason Fenton, mountain biker and owner of Halters Cycles in South Brunswick, NJ. Jason led efforts in 2006 to secure official permission for, and then build and maintain, a system of mountain bike and run/hike trails at Six Mile Run Park just up the street from his shop.

    We were fortunate the day prior to Thanksgiving to ride Six Mile on our 'cross bikes and then swing by Triumph in Princeton for some beers and wings. What an amazing day. To J-Dog and all the volunteers who made this place possible - thanks.

    Film by Adam Nawrot. Some great footage of this year's Jamesburg 'cross UCI race at the end of the film, where you'll see some familiar faces. My likeness managed to elude capture. Don't forget to turn on the HD.

    Nice. I worked in Princeton for a long time and Halters was my go-to spot. Triumph has a damned good burger. Growlers to go. Many crazy nights started in this manner.

    The crew at Halters is the absolute best. They've bailed me out on more than one occasion. When all "more local" options have failed, they're the type of old school shop to "have one of those laying around here somewhere..." Even at an hour and a half drive, it was totally worth it.

    I've been drinking beer at that Triumph since I was 18 and celebrated my 21st birthday there. Great memories.

    That was good stuff. Thanks for the escape. One of the good guys. Kudos to them for donning the chaps and helmets when running the saws.

    One of the good guys indeed. It's great to see Jason getting much-deserved exposure for the hard work he (and others) do at 6 Mile Run, and in our community in general.

    Props to Adam for his video talents as well.
