Ride places like wells park, ladd road, douglas,bigelow ct and many others . I ride with 3 others every weekend . We go at a sport to expert pace for about 2 - 4 hours . Would love to meet some new riding buds .:thumbsup:

Have you looked at joining any bike clubs in your area? I know the Team Bums guys and gals ride in your area and I think they run one of their summer time trails in Monson or Sturbridge (can't remember where). They also race in Millbury, Whitinsville, Sutton etc. If you interested let me know and I can probably get you some more info...

I ride those areas all the time and often with the bums. I'm originally from Southbridge but i live in Boylston now. If you would like to get together, I'm interested. I like fast paced XC on techincal terrain. Ladd Rd is one of my favorites, so is Bigelow. I try to get out 1-2 times at nite during the week and at least once on the weekend. Here is a pic of my new ride, an 07 GF HiFi Pro built up as a 96er.

Did you make Ladd Rd today? I couldn't make it, family obligations. There is a ride going on tomorrow am at 10 in Sutton, there are some great trails out there and a TT course thats a blast. How were the trails today? If Ladd Rd is ridable, Sutton should be as well.

I did the ride yesteday in Sutton and the conditions were actually pretty good, although it was freakin freezing out! All total there were probably about 15+ people out for about 2 -2.5 hours. I was riding with the Bums guys/ gals and all I have to say is that I am in dire need of getting myself back in shape...

Question for you guys: Where on Ladd Rd do you ride? I used to ride at Wells 3-4 times a week before the kid came along, but I never heard of anything off Ladd Rd. I assume it the the Ladd Rd that bisects Rt 49. Thanks.

Hey Matt,

The club is having a ride at West Millbury at 11 am followed by a couple of different ice races on Lake Singletary.

I'm a regular NETA trials rider and belong to the RITC club that holds rides/events there. They have even held world round trials events, the terrain is the best in NE for trials. Hills and rocks make for great trials. You picked a great spot......

If we get good snow, I'll be snowmobiling this weekend. Got to get it in while the getting is good. The following week may be better for me. Bryan often does nite rides down on the CT coast when the snow comes. I bet he will be heading down next week.
