NW CT NEMBA Weekly Intermediate Ride

Event Date

Repeats every week every Thursday until Thu Sep 07 2017 .
6/1/17 5:30pm
Scott and Brian will be leading intermediate rides on Thursday nights starting June 1st. 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. Plan to arrive by 5:30pm, the aim is to get rolling by 5:45pm. Please let us know if you plan on making it to the ride, so the group can start as soon as everyone gets there.

As uaual we'll be alternating ride locations between the Nassahegon Soccer Fields and the Sessions Woods WMA areas.  As we did last year; we'll be throwing in some other locations to the mix as well.  Keep an eye on FB, our website, and/or our mailing list for details on different locations including Harwinton, Nepaug, Burr Pond, and who knows where else. The first week we'll be starting at the Soccer Fields, and will be switching every week from there unless announced otherwise. 

If you're unfamiliar with the parking location you can use the following addresses in your GPS:
Soccer Fields: 273 Punch Brook Rd Burlington CT 06013
Sessions Woods WMA: 341 Milford Street (Rte 69) Burlington, CT 06013
