    Metrowest night riding

    Any thoughts on the best places for night riding in Metrowest? The state parks are closed after dusk, but I know you can do West Hill Dam, Talbot Trails, Rayburn.. any other recommendations?

    I've got lights now and am loving the different ride vibe in the dark.

    Whatever you do don't go to Freetown. You might run into a chupacabra at night.

    Most likely - there's a lot of them there on the opposite side of the hospital. For easy terrain, I hear of a lot of flats there.

    Over the years, we night ride in the fall/early season pretty much everywhere we ride the rest of the year.

    As long as there's no "no parking" signs, restrictions posted about being closed after dark, and you don't piss off anyone who lives near the trail head you should be fine wherever.
