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

Advisory about Huntington State Park

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

HUNTINGTON STATE PARK

Just a reminder to everyone that is riding Huntington, please make sure you abide by park rules and regulations:

  • Dogs are only allowed at Huntington on leash, this is a SERIOUS recurring theme against mountain bikers from CT DEEP, Rangers and other trail users.
  • Stay on trails and avoid braids
  • Get CT DEEP approval to build or modify trails, otherwise don’t touch the trail!
  • Please do not park on the Mountain Laurel in the lower Dodgingtown parking lot.
  • Please slow down and be courteous to other trail users
  • Night Riders – be aware the Park Rangers will begin ticketing cars in lots after sun down as the park is closed at sun down.

Huntington is an amazing place to ride and we need to remember our access is a privilege and not a right. Read more about Advisory about Huntington State Park
