trying to get the scoop on the trails and water situation. I NEED to ride this weekend. Not sure if the local situation NE CT is the same other places in CT.
Thanks, I think we're going to hit Middlesex on Sunday AM with the guys (you're welcomed to join if you would like), maybe Shenipsit (Soapstone) with the wife on Saturday.Guyechka said:Just got back from Case, and the top is certainly dry enough to ride. Some of the trails are messy from all the debris washed down. I would still keep clear of the bottom trails--especially Coups. And it is more buggy than ever; the mosquitos pay no attention to DEET anymore.
I rode up at Mashamoquet on Friday night, one section of trail was all wet and kinda yuck but still rideable. Yesterday went out to Yawgoo in Exeter, RI trails were dry, some areas were a little wet, but not bad at all. I think things are finally drying out. :rays to the rain gods to cool it for a while::Guyechka said:Just got back from Case, and the top is certainly dry enough to ride.

A vast majority of the "ride" was more hiking and lugging my bike (with a lil help from my friends - gotta love the beetles) over rocks and things. I guess there are some "easier" trails there as well. A friend of mine took us there and showed my other friend and I some trails. I guess the "easier" trails are down the road a ways. If you go down the main road to the parking area on the right (go past all the scouting areas) there is a trail head there? What we did on Sunday was more of a hiking trail. The trail around the back of the lake was barely wide enough to WALK through, let alone drag/push/pull a bike along with you. I'm going to venture a guess that the other trail was more biker friendly. There was a group of bikers in that parking area on our return. We gave a friendly nod/hi as we rode past sweaty, spent, bloody and bitten. It was a fun time though!Cobretti said:Trail Mynx, I didn't know there is riding at Yawgoo. I rode around there once but couldn't find anything. Any tips, suggestions etc. where to look? Even if there's not a lot there I'd still like to check it out.
