QC NEMBA Goodwin Natchaug Epic Fun Ride

Date

6/2/18 (All day)

Help us bridge the gap!

Proceeds from this ride will fund the purchase, build and installation of a new bridge within Goodwin State Forest

Sign up for the ride will start at 22 Potter Road Hampton CT at 9:00 AM.

Short Loop: (6ish miles) Enjoy the scenic trails of Goodwin State Forest and preview some of the great riding it has to offer.

Intermediate Loop: (15+ miles) Not interested in the Epic challenge, but definitely looking for more than 6 miles. No worries, we’ve got you covered. This loop will provide a tour of Goodwin and a taste of Natchaug. At the furthest point, you can enjoy a great rest stop, with tons of character, some refreshments and snacks, and a few laughs while you gear up for the second half of your ride.

Epic Loop: (25+ miles) If you’ve attended this event in the past and attempted to be hero for a day by going for the long loop, you know how EPIC of a ride the combination of these two forests presents. 

As always, you will visit the rest stop to recharge before taking on the gnar of Natchaug, and come back through after the grueling assault to gather your strength before making the final push back to Goodwin for the pot luck BBQ.

Once again we’ve put together a new loop to keep it interesting, and keep you wondering why you chose to torture yourselves. 

This event will be running in conjunction with CT Trails Day Weekend activities at Goodwin Conservation Center, so bring the family to enjoy non biking activities as well. For more information on other activities visit Friends of Goodwin Forest.

The Goodwin/Natchaug combination provides riders with a vast array of trails, route options, and miles upon miles of endless terrain to explore. Running through part of both of these state forests, there is also the Airline Trail, a section of the East Coast Greenway, which provides a scenic option for the more casual rider.
