just saw that Fabian Barel WC DH racer had a catastophic accident where he broke not only his wrist, but his femur as well!
i would like to point out that HE DIDN"T SUE ANYONE!
he admits that it is a risky sport and that he takes risks evertime he rides his bike.....hmmmm PERSONAL RESPONSIBILTY what a concept.

BTW- awesome turn out at WH Town Hall the other bight. proud of the MTB community.

I didn't sue either.


It seemed to me that the MDC Commissioners were receptive to ideas as well.

Looks like we made an impression

From Rick Green's blog:

There is "absolutely no way" the Metropolitan District Commission will close its popular network of trails, the panel's chairman said Thursday afternoon.

"We would never even think about it," William Dibella said. "This is a jewel."

The MDC has been debating how to respond to a $2.9 million jury verdict in favor of a Rocky Hill woman who crashed her mountain bike into a gate at the West Hartford reservoir.

DiBella said the MDC will wait until the legislature can consider proposals that would provide immunity from all lawsuits for the regional water agency.

He said he was encouraged the large crowd that turned out at a public meeting Tuesday night in support of the walking, running and cycling trails.

More later.

Well Done Connectcut. :) :thumbsup: :)

I only get to ride WH res once a year when I visit family. It brings back to my youth of blasting through the woods on my 20" Columbia. I raised in Southington but now reside in Florida. So you can see I miss the hills. I even feel guilty calling it Mountain Biking down here. But We do OK with what we got.

Looking forward to riding WH res this fall.;)

Wow I'm so glad to see this thread. WH res was where I learned to mountain bike. A buddy of mine who's still back East told me about this and it was a big downer thinking it was going to be closed. This thread is an equal upper.
