8/16/17 5:15pm to 9:00pm
Join us August 16th in Brattleboro for an epic Wednesday Night Ride. Kind of a Grand Reopening! Meet at the parking area for the hockey rink at the Living Memorial Park.
The crew in Brattleboro have been working hard adding new trail, cleaning up and buffing out the other stuff, and getting trails signed/marked and putting a map together. And they aren’t done. In fact, they are just getting started.
So on the 16th they’d like to have a bigger WNR and showcase what they have been up to.
There will be 2 ride groups. An inter-mellow (casual/social/intermediate pace) that will hit the berm trail, the new climbing trail, and the town trails. You’ll probably hit them 2x (they are that good). There will also be a faster ride that goes out to Pete's trails and back with everything in between. Tires roll for fast group @ 5:30. People should try to arrive by 5:15 so the guys can give a brief intro to the land use arrangement that they have worked out.
You’ll want to stick around, West Hill will be providing après ride snacks and will set up a tent in the parking lot. There will be printed maps to help get yourselves oriented as well.
If 5:15 is too early, you should still try to come out, if for no other reason than to hang out after and socialize. But you can probably still get a good ride in and likely run into the crew out there.
Things are really starting to get going in Brattleboro again, so come out and show some support and learn how you can help. There is a lot of potential for new trails in the area, group rides are going off consistently, shops are getting more involved… Come learn more.
And if you have lights, bring them. You probably won’t need them, but it is that time of year when darkness sneaks up on you!
