Ocean County Competition Riders M/C (OCCR) is a group of over 150 members dedicated to the sport of motorcycling. An AMA chartered club since 1970, our membership consists of all levels of experience from first time riders, seasoned weekend warriors, all the way to Grand Champions. Our club members are active in competing in Enduros, Hare Scrambles, Dual Sport rides and Observed Trials. Members can also be found participating in non-competitive trail riding. Our club also has a strong commitment to the conservation of the NJ State Forest system and supports many conservation projects.
The ECEA (East Coast Enduro Association) is a group of 19 AMA chartered clubs throughout NJ, PA, NY, DE, and MD engaged in the sponsorship and promotion of off-highway motorcycle events and is widely recognized as one of the foremost off-highway motorcycle events sanctioning bodies in the United States.
The ECEA was established in 1972 and is the largest promoter of off-road motorcycling in the US in terms of the number of events and membership.
I don’t really want to race right away. Does the club have people that I can just ride with on Sundays?
Yes, you can usually find people to ride (practice) with every Sunday of the year (excluding days of popular enduros or hare scrambles, and sometimes extreme weather conditions). A few members also get together other days of the week to practice (for those who work Sundays). Only licensed, registered, and insured vehicles are permitted in NJ State Forests.
What events does the club sponsor during the year?
OCCR holds our Scrub Pine Enduro in Brendan T. Byrne State Forest located in Manchester, Pemberton, and Woodland Townships.
How does OCCR prepare for their “Scrub Pine Enduro”?
We at OCCR take pride in our accomplishment of being the 8-TIME enduro of the year winner, having arguably the best sand-run ever held in central New Jersey. In order to have a successful enduro, we need to keep fire-cuts clean and maintain existing trails.
What is involved with pulling off a successful enduro on the day of the event?
We need full member support to work check crews, road crossings, handing out information packets, signing waivers, tech inspections, sweep riders, and section riders.
Where are the club’s members from and what is the age breakdown?
We have members from all over NJ, a couple from PA, NY, and even 1 from West Virginia! We average about 125 members. member ages range from 15 to 75, with the average age being around 40. Enduros and Hare Scrambles have classes to suit all age groups.
