NW CT NEMBA Weekly Thursday Ride - Burr Pond

Event Date

7/21/16 5:30pm

That's right, we're switching things up again this week. 2 weeks ago we hit up the fine trails in Harwinton, now we've lined up some tour guides for Burr Pond in Torrington!

We'll have two groups - one which is likely to hit all the rocky goodness they can find, and the other will take a toned down approach. For those who haven't been , this will be a good chance to try out some different riding from Burington. Not sure what the mileage will be, but it will be fun!

We'll meet at the Burr Pond boat launch parking area (699 Burr Mountain Road, Torrington) between 5:30-5:45. We will be rolling by 6 at the latest. As always this is an intermediate level no drop ride, so come on out and have some fun!

NW CT NEMBA Weekly Thursday Ride - Harwinton

Event Date

7/7/16 5:30pm
We're switching things up a bit for this ride and moving things to Harwinton. For those who don't know: The Town of Harwinton has been working with NW CT NEMBA over the last couple of years to establish mountain bike trails on their properties. A lot of work has been done and we're going to check it out!

Our plan right now is to have one group do about 10 miles at a moderate pace, though we could split into 2 groups if needed. The goal is to show off the trails and terrain in the area. It will be a nice change of pace from the riding in Burlington that normally do for our group rides.

Meet at 5:30 at the Harwinton Town Hall at 100 Bentley Drive.

NW CT NEMBA Thursday Ride

Event Date

5/26/16 5:30pm
Let's do it all again this week. Last week we rolled 26 strong in 3 different groups. Can we top that this week? We plan on 3 groups again. This past Thursday, our leaders were pushed by their groups a bit beyond our mileage expectations for each group so let's reset our estimates to: Group A is 6-8 miles; Group 2 is 9-11 miles; and Group X is 11-13+ miles. No matter what group you feel most comfortable in this is still a no drop social ride. There will be a good mix of abilities on these rides, so don't let the "intermediate" label scare you off.

We'll be back at Sessions Woods WMA off of route 69 in Burlington this week. Let's meet at 5:30 and try to be rolling by 5:45-6:00.

If you're on the fence about going - Just do it! We have some fun loops planned again for this week!

NW CT NEMBA Kids/Family Ride

Event Date

5/29/16 10:00am
Our first Kids/Family ride of the season will be on May 29th. We'll be riding from Sessions Woods WMA in Burlington CT. Meet at 10am and we'll get rolling as soon as everyone is ready. Please respond if you're planning on coming so we know to wait for everyone. Participants should be able to ride a bike without training wheels, and, as always, everyone must wear a helmet. The pace will be slow, with plenty of stops for re-hydration and snacks. We'll ride 1-4 miles or so, depending on the group. The goal is to introduce children to the fun of riding bikes in the woods. No one will be left behind and we'll do our best to make sure that everyone has a good time! You do not have to be a NEMBA member to join the ride.
