R.I.W. Ride #4

Tuesday 11/30/2021

We will be riding the infamous and some what ancient West Hartford Reservoir.

This was one of few hot areas back in 1994 when I was starting out, however it is still a worthy ride.

With a big climb right out of the gate, it is perfect for a chilly morning ride.

We will encounter lots of trap rock tech which in my opinion is some of the hardest rock to ride due to is jagged, chock your wheels abruptly nature.

I will work in some of the more flowy trails to keep things rolling.

This is a no drop pace ride suitable for intermediate riders who at least dabble in tech.

NEMBA membership is not required but you will need to have signed the 2021 liability waiver.

We will be meeting at 9:30 am and wheels will be rolling by 9:40.

This group has been ruthless and has been pushing me to start on time so don't be late.

Plan on approximately 10 miles.  Read more about [node:title]

HV NEMBA Trail Day @ Waldo

Date

12/4/21 9:00am

Housatomic Valley TrailBuild @ Waldo State Park.

Work day at Waldo on Saturday, 12/4, 9 AM and home by lunch.

It's time we re-routed part of the Red trail just uphill from the parking lot.

The descent on the far side of the hill past the laurels is getting rooty and eroded.

Paula and I laid out a fun, twisty course just to the west of there.

It will need some benching and some raking, but it won't be a major undertaking.

If more people show than are needed for this task, the trails can definitely use a clipper patrol.

Sign the 2021 NEMBA Waiver if you haven't already done so.

  You don't have to be a member of HV NEMBA to help out.  

You just have to want to make our trails better. Read more about [node:title]
