NW CT NEMBA is taking a field trip to Trumbull (Indian Ledge Park), Saturday, 9/16.
Intermediate/Advanced ride due to the terrain - a lot of rocks and features to play on (rollers, drops, etc.) - not the speed.
Expect to be out anywhere from 2-3 hours, depending on group size and time spent on various features.
Protective gear (elbow pads, knee pads) recommended for those who have never ridden Trumbull (lots of rocks that can sneak up on you when you're not familiar with the lines...not to comfy if you eat it...).
We will be meeting in the commuter parking lot on Park Street (Route 25 and Daniels Farm Road, Exit 9 off of Route 25). Here are the GPS coordinates: 41.25236277 -73.20073556.
All other NEMBA groups (if you are a member of our FB page, too, and see this) are welcome - especially the Fairfield County Folks - would love to have you!

Our annual Old Furnace Fun Ride will be held Sunday, September 10th.
This state park seems small on paper, but packs a punch as a twisty, hilly, technical favorite… Bring your legs and log some "Old Furnace miles" featuring challenging terrain, daunting climbs, daring rollers, cliff edge ridge lines (with great views when you stop to catch your breath), plenty of features, crazy fun and more.
Don’t let its challenging reputation sway you, an advance
beginner can have just as much fun here. There will be a short and long loop option.
Old Furnace State Park is one of the Quiet Corner's hidden gems and has undergone vast improvements made possible from the funds raised at our 2014-2016 Old Furnace Fun Rides.
Parking at Ross Pond lot.
Registration starts at 9am
Post ride grub 11:30am
$10 - NEMBA Members

FREE to anyone who joins NEMBA as a NEW member at the ride.
