LLF Parking Update - OK to Park at Estabrook School on Weekends

Thursday, April 30, 2015

LLF Parking update: The Town of Lexington has approved parking at the Estabrook School on weekends for Landlocked Forest access. This is great news as it will reduce the volume at the powerlines lot during its highest-use times. Please consider parking there first if you are planning on riding LLF. It is a very short ride from there to the powerlines entrance of LLF. Thanks for helping us reduce congestion at the powerlines lot!

It also goes without saying that we need to respect the school property, please no changing kit in public there especially, please help keep it clean and tidy and probably also a good idea to use the parking farthest from the school entrance.

MVNEMBA Friday Ride @ RM & GBF

Event Date

Repeats every week every Friday until Fri Nov 27 2015 .
4/24/15 5:00pm to 8:00pm
Join us for our Friday group ride at Russell Mill and Great Brook Farm!  This is an advanced-intermediate skill level technical ride, typically 12-20+ miles in length (longer during prime riding season when we include a loop to GBF).   Some road riding is necessary to connect the two locations.

We have two start times to accomodate traffic and schedules.  A warmup loop of a few miles starts just after 5PM, and comes back through the parking lot before 6PM to pick up late arrivals.

Parking lot is directly across from 1 Raymond Road, Chelmsford MA.  Look for signs for the Murphy Soccer Fields.  Park in the back lot, further from the street.

MVNEMBA Tuesday Ride @ LDT

Event Date

Repeats every week every Tuesday until Tue Oct 27 2015 .
4/28/15 5:00pm to 8:00pm
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.

Parking lot is approximately located at 132 Trotting Park Road, Lowell, MA.
