Wendell Social Ride Monday, 07/30 at 6pm
Monday, July 30th, 6:00pm: Wendell State Forest
Lets go out and take advantage of the trails in their pristine condition after they got primed for the NEMBA MBAS last weekend! We will probably ride most of the trails making up the early part of the MBAS intermediate loop. Expect some technical, some up and down but no significant amount of climbing. Should be a fun ride! We will meet at the Wendell State Forest Headquarters. Ride time is 6:00pm. Plan to get there about 10-15 minutes early to check your bike and and get ready.
Monday night ride series: Riders of all abilities are welcome to join us for our slow-paced, beginner friendly mountain bike ride series throughout the Pioneer Valley and beyond on Monday evenings! Rides typically last one to two hours with frequent stops. Helmets, water, a bike in good working order and some basic bike handling skills are required. You should plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early to get yourself ready for the ride. Rides may be subject to change on short notice (due to weather etc.) - if I know you are coming to a canceled ride I will make sure to let you know!
From the east or west: Take Rte. 2 to Rte. 63 south through Miller Falls, Wendell Rd. over R.R. bridge, take Montague Rd. and follow signs.
From the north or south: Take Rte 47 North to Route 63 North. Travel approximately 6 miles and follow lead in signs approximately 2 miles to the Park Headquarters. (From RT63: turn right on Highland St (before center of Millers Falls) to intersection with S Prospect St, turn right onto S Prospect St and follow that all the way up -turns into Wendell Rd, bear right)
- Bike in good working order
Feel free to contact me with questions for further information, car pooling or just to let me know you're coming. Hope to see you all soon! If you're unsure if the ride is still happening (rain, heat, surprise blizzard etc.) call me the day of the ride - leave a message if I don't pick up and I will call you back.
