    Batchelor Street Praise

    Wanted to give a shout out to the guys maintaining the Batchelor street network for the amazing trails they've got. I made it up there for a quick ride last weekend and had an awesome ride.

    I did what appears to be the most common loop of Far East>Far Side>Far Out>Pete's Wicked>Southern Belle>South Side>Jacob's Ladder>Roller Coaster and it was a hell of a ride. I wanted to hit Lizard King and Raptor instead of South Side but ran out of time. Can wait to get back there again and check out more of the network as well at Earl's.

    Thank you to the crew who make these trails so great!

    Right on Waterbooy! I ride there 2-3 times per week and BS never ceases to amaze me. Combine with Earl's and Lithia Springs you have endless loop options (40+ miles) with lots of tech, flowing trails, vistas, swimming ponds...What more can you ask for? BTW, cool pic you posted of one of my favorite rock features at BS.

    I rode there once about 8 years ago and remember it being the best place i've ridden. Can't wait to go back and see how it stacks up today.

    It's been a special place since I first rode it back in the summer of 1999. I don't get there much anymore, but everytime I do (which is maybe once every 3 months or so) I am pleasantly reminded how it's the gem among gems in Western, MA.
