NW CT NEMBA - Trumbull Ride

Event Date

9/16/17 10:00am

NW CT NEMBA is taking a field trip to Trumbull (Indian Ledge Park), Saturday, 9/16. 
Intermediate/Advanced ride due to the terrain - a lot of rocks and features to play on (rollers, drops, etc.) - not the speed.
Expect to be out anywhere from 2-3 hours, depending on group size and time spent on various features.
Protective gear (elbow pads, knee pads) recommended for those who have never ridden Trumbull (lots of rocks that can sneak up on you when you're not familiar with the lines...not to comfy if you eat it...).

We will be meeting in the commuter parking lot on Park Street (Route 25 and Daniels Farm Road, Exit 9 off of Route 25). Here are the GPS coordinates: 41.25236277 -73.20073556.

All other NEMBA groups (if you are a member of our FB page, too, and see this) are welcome - especially the Fairfield County Folks - would love to have you!
