    I could show you Shenipsit, Case or Nathan Hale - all are close by my house. Where did you move here from and what kind of rides are you looking for? There's great riding here, probably closest to Bloomfield is West Hartford Reservoir, I don't ride there much, but a lot of people do.

    Oh and welcome to CT!

    The best ride nearest to Bloomfield is Penwood State Park on Rt 185 on the Simsbury-Bloomfield line. Its a great technical cross country ride, mostly on a ridge with plenty of exposed rock and lots of up and down. West Hartford Reservoir is good to meet other people to ride with since its always busy, but the trails are beat up and no way as fun or challenging as Penwood. There's a small trail network behind Cowles Park in East Granby on Rt 187, not as many miles as Penwood, but the same ridgeline and really good too.

    I ride Penwood or Cowles most weekends that I'm cramped for time since they are so close to me. Drop me a note with your schedule for the next 2 weekends and we'll try to meet up.

    Thanks Jisch,
    Sounds like fun places. I live in Westfield Ma. but i work in Bloomfield. I came from Northampton Ma. where there is a TON of awesome riding. I am more of a Cross Country rider. I will hit you back when i can get out.

    Penwood-Tarifville is right in between Westfield and Bloomfield.
