I live in Acton; mostly ride Great Brook Farm and Estabrook Woods. I have done Dogtown in Gloucester and Leominster State Forest as well. They are both excellent rides. Of course I road Moab this summer and that is the best (sorry, I just had to get that one in). I also rode in Jackson Hole and did a 10 mile downhill ride that was awesome.

I'm in the pioneer valley chap. I ride at the Holyoke range cuz its the only thing I can find. I just moved here so I dont know where all the good spots are yet. I was hopin that joining NEMBA would get me out there with other riders and hittin other good places to ride, but the only people that ride are out east. There was only one organized event out here this whole summer. Guess where it was. Yeep u got it the Holyoke range. WOW gettin sick of that place. If anyone rides in western mass reply, I'd get in to ridin other places around here. Peace

CT. I used to ride. Pretty much ranged up and down the CT river valley in nomadic fashion with sporadic ventures to other CT tasties. Recently I've been pretty much hung up patroling our eastern border and being ever vigilant to the ominous threat of incursion from 'da chowderheads.
