DCR Reminder for Fells Riders

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

DCR has reached out to us to ask that we remind riders that the Skyline (White) trail at the Fells is hiking-only. They have observed an increase in the number of riders on Skyline and asked for help getting the word out to the riding community to please not ride on Skyline. So please respect this and take advantage of the other main, legally ride-able trails at the Fells: Orange and Green.

Thanks for spreading the word and helping be good trail-community members at the Fells!

MVNEMBA Tuesday Ride at Lowell-Dracut

Event Date

Repeats every week every Tuesday until Sat Sep 30 2017 .
4/18/17 5:00pm

Join us for our infamous Tuesday Ride at Lowell-Dracut-Tyngsboro State Forest. This is an advanced-intermediate technical ride typically 12-15 miles in length.

The pace is a bit more moderate for the first few weeks as we all shake the rust off, but ramps up to a steady challenging pace with occasional stops to regroup. The ride has two start times to accomodate traffic and schedules. A warmup loop of a few miles leaves the parking lot just after 5PM, and that group swings back through the lot to pick up late arrivals by 6PM.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT PARKING: Due to lack of parking at Trotting Road, this start of this ride has moved.  We now meet at the public park behind the ballfields located at 10 Gumpus Rd., Lowell MA
