    MTB is officially off limits at Brooksvale

    For the longest time it was tolerated, the land manager turned a blind eye to but thanks to some selfish riders it's now off limits.

    Apparently, the weekend prior to Memorial Day a group of adult riders came bombing down the red trail near the park entrance forcing a mother, grandmother, and child to dive into the bushes for their safety. He said the riders never stopped to say sorry or help them up, they just continued riding. The distraught hikers made some calls and sent emails that eventually traveled all the way to the Hamden Mayors Office and thanks to the poor rider etiquette Brooksvale is now closed to all mountain bikers.

    Thanks guys!

    No good can't we all get along

    god forbid that these people actually share the trail! what a chance to teach the child about what NOT to do on the trails- but NO! we must show our litigious society at its base level. Further- way to show a child that the majority will be punished for the actions of a few. i can only imagine if this person's child was suspended from school- along with all of the students- because of two others fighting! imagine the hew and cry.
