    Charlemont Trails System 2012

    Things are starting to move along up in the hills. Work days last Wednesday and Saturday got some things fixed and cleared.

    Trails are dry and ready to ride. We'll be putting up some trail signs probably later this week so you can find the trail-heads.

    Wednesday Morning Trail Days - 9:00 AM at Zoar
    Next events - 2nd Thursdays Bike, Brews and Burgers @ Warfield House 6:00
    Trail Work Day - 4/14 with Zoar Zips for all day participants
    Trail Work Day - 5/12 with Berkshire Zips for all day participants

    Friend us on Facebook - Charlemont Trails (CTS) - Sports Venue | Facebook to get all the details.

    Trails are open to the public free of charge and built and maintained by some dedicated volunteers. Give us a hand if you can.

    Hoping to get a good chunk of new trail scratched into Warfield Mtn today. Come join the fun. 9:00 at Warfield house. Gloves and water a good idea. We'll have plenty of tools.

    Same drill tonight 6:00. Special 3rd Thursday edition of the Bikes, Burgers, Brews and BS at the Warfield House. Bring lights, who knows how late we'll be riding!

    Maybe we'll get some CTS newbies out. Lots of sweat and smiles in store!

    See you all on the Trails -

    Busy Spring - Come check it out!

    Riding tomorrow night (5/31) at 6:00pm from Warfield House. Moderate or < pace - probably a couple hours. We'll check out some/most of the new stuff on the northern side of the valley, leaving the southern tier for another day.

    The trail construction season has been fruitful, total single track scratched into the earth up there is close to 25 miles. We still need a few good work days to bench in some of the off camber stuff, and another good session with the rock armorers and bridge builders, but almost everything is riding nicely.

    Looks great...a long downhill with a little tech and some fast sections. A skills test for sure on that run. That doubletrack at the end was blazing fast. Guy was winded at the end from fighting all the way down the run.
    Get out and ride even when you don't want to because ten minutes into the ride you'll be glad you did.

    Over a mile and a half and 900+ feet of vertical. Definitely a LONG downhill. This video misses the first 20% or so of the trail since Matt flatted and restarted after he got things sealed up again.
