    Harold Parker

    Here's a short write-up on a recent ride at Harold Parker SF in MA. Great mix of flowy singletrack with a generous dose of some exceptional technical challenges mixed in.

    Did you make it over to Lock N Load? That's a fun section

    Somebody needs to post a map with trail names as I have no idea what the trails are called. However, I think you must be talking about the trails beyond the gun club which were pretty cool.

    Mr. No Helmet was taunting the mountain biking gods...although he wasn't punished. Interestingly, he took more spills at Bradbury when he actually remembered to wear his helmet. (See the video at the end)

    You would know if you did Lock N Load as it has three really tough roller/drops with bypass lines for each. It's not very long, but it's a nice one. HP is killer! My favorite place to ride in MA right now.
    Get out and ride even when you don't want to because ten minutes into the ride you'll be glad you did.

    Something tells me you'ld like Lowell-Dracut-Tyngsboro too. The NEMBA trail in the southeastern corner has excellent singletrack with lots of hero lines with lower cost alternatives.
