NW CT NEMBA Trail Maintenance Day

Date

6/7/14 10:00am

We'll be having our monthly trail maintenance day on Saturday, June 7th at 10am.  Parking will be on East Chippens Hill Rd in Burlington.  E Chippens is a dirt road north of Sessions Woods.  We will be parking along the side of the road, just look for the cars.
 
Work will be concentrated on the white trail that runs between Sessions Woods and E Chippens Hill Rd.  Bring work gloves, sturdy shoes, water, bug spray, and pruning tools if you have them.
 
If the weather is nice we will most likely go for a ride after work is complete, so bring your bike!

We will be having our first ride aimed at getting kids out on the trails on Sunday, June 8th. Parking will be at the Sessions Woods Wildlife Management Area on route 69 in Burlington. Meet at 10am and we'll get rolling as soon as everyone is ready. Please respond if you're planning on coming so we know to wait for everyone.

Participants should be able to ride a bike without training wheels, and, as always, everyone must wear a helmet. The pace will be slow, with plenty of stops for re-hydration and snacks. We'll ride 1-3 miles or so, depending on the group.

Margie will be leading intermediate rides on Thursday nights starting May 8th. Ride length and intensity will vary depending on who shows up that week. Rides may also be split into 2 or more groups to accommodate different levels of ability and/or interest. Rides are somewhat technical and are typically 8-10 miles depending on the group and the amount of daylight. We try to be back to the parking lot before dark, but if you have lights it would be a good idea to bring them just in case. This year we'll be implementing the "Second Rider Drop" method which will be explained before we ride.

We'll meet at the Nassahegon Soccer Fields on Punch Brook Rd in Burlington, CT at 5:30pm. The aim is to get rolling by 5:45pm. Please let Margie know if you plan on making it, so the group can start as soon as everyone gets there.

Check our Facebook page or email Margie for updates and cancellations.

Cara will be leading beginner rides on Monday nights as of May 5th. Anyone who is interested/knows someone who is interested, please be sure to respond when I post a ride. This ride is open to 'more advanced' riders as a way to just spin the legs for recovery after a weekend of killer rides (that's my way of asking for assistance when you're legs are dead but you still want to head out...). The ride will be a slow pace and depending on the group, may include several stops to work on things - or to just catch a breath! Distance will depend on how well the newbies do - no pressure!

We'll meet at the Nassahegon Soccer Fields on Punch Brook Rd in Burlington, CT at 5:30pm. The aim is to get rolling by 5:45-6pm. Please let Cara know if you plan on making it, so the group can start as soon as everyone gets there.

Check our Facebook page or email Cara for updates and cancellations.

Description

A small park with about 4.5 miles of new singletrack  and  there are plans for about 3 more miles of singletrack in the works.  The red –orange trail ( Where’s Waldo Trail) interconnects with the Daffy Trail ( yellow) and the Hunter’s Trail allowing for a variety of loops. Trails are flowy, mostly smooth single track with log and rock features on the side of the trail.  This is great fun for beginners and for the more experienced.  The trail end at a lovely beach.
