    Mass Riders, Post Your Bikes/Where You Ride

    The MA forum never really gets much action so I'm going to start this one.

    My Ride:

    DSC00645.JPG

    Mostly I ride at Leominster State Forest, and I'm starting to get into Wendell State Forest.
    My epiglottis is full of bees!

    Here are some pics of my GF HiFi Pro 96er. I ride mostly in central mass with the team bum club. Mt Pisgah in Berlin, Rayburn in Milford, Ladd Rd in Sturbridge, Vietnam, Plumbers Landing in Whitinsville and several others. I would like to check out Leominster SF, I hear there is a lot of trails.

    Here's my Ride: With the retro-reliable new cloud nine shock-and Albert tires!:

    Most of my riding is in Wendell SF, Bachelor St (Holyoke skinner sf) and the 'Long Ridge' Starts at Sugar North in Deerfield Runs To Poet's seat in Greenfield--tons of after work and early morning riding fun in here! DAR is fun--and I love the riding in and around the Yokun Ridge in Lennox.

    I have a surly karate monkey and a salsa dos niner. The Fells is close to home so I ride there for pre- or post-work rides. I spend alot of time at Otis in Falmouth. Other usual spots included Blue Hills, Vietnam and occassionally Lynn, but i've hit none of those places since discovering harold parker and ward reservation this fall. I used to ride foxboro and Wretham state forest years ago when I worked in walpole.

    Here's a pic of my steed. The Titus really rocks in this terrain. Light and stiff for 5" of fully active travel.

    I hail from Rockport, MA. My stomping grounds are Lynn Woods, B&T's, Dogtown, and a bunch of other local North Shore trails.

    Here are my two bikes:

    2004 Rocky Mountain Element 30:

    only a couple upgrades. Shes been holding up very nicely.
    2006 Bianchi WUSS

    just picked her up about a month ago from eBay for about half the original price. So far: amazing.

    I live in Sharon, MA. Most of my riding takes place around Foxboro State Forrest, Borderland State park, and Blue Hills. But thats during the school year. I'm in Vermont all summer.

    Whats up, Nathan. Actually thats an old pic. I had an rp3 originally and traded it for the dhx5 I have now. Just got the dhx5 back from PUSH, the ride is sweeter than ever. Had to send it in after blowing the rebound during the Wicked ride.

    Later, Scott

    Let's see,

    [] I used to ride the North Shore and Lynn with Woodyak until I moved. Now I pretty much ride Otis, since it is right out my front door, and it really isn't that bad. It's alot like Kt , just tighter, with less climbing and no " rideable" freeride trail.
    Since the pic I threw on a Pushed rp3, which is great compared to the Romic.

    Most of my bikes are in there.
    I mostly ride at Earl's trails in Hadley on the Sinister Mustang
    The DH bikes aren't in the picture, they get raced around the country and ridden a ton at Jiminy peak and here in Northampton.

    Sure. The trails are by the Hadley Resevoir, across the street from Hampshire College. They hook up with the excellent Batchelor street trails, but are far faster and less rocky.

    this is my everyday bike. use a C-dale ht for racing. unfortunately the Intense FS frame hasn't been as reliable as my HTs. go figure.

    I'm on Cape Cod so my local riding is Trail of Tears, Otis and Pinehills. but I go everywhere but my favorite of New England is the Berkshires. Lenox, Pittsfield, Savoy.

    At 16 years old you may think I begged mama and dada for the previous two bikes but I earned the $$$ for both bikes working at International Bike in Newton. I mostly ride Hudson Park/Naked man because they are about a mile from my house. Problem is, no one I know who is my age is as dedicated, skilled, or educated in the fine art of all-mountain and xc mountain biking as I would have expected. Me and one other person I know go riding there a lot. If anyone rides the way I do in the Newton/Needham/Wellesley area, I would love to get an e-mail or pm. All the relatively experienced am/xc riders I know are planning a ride for fun sometime this summer. This includes most of the IBC employees w/bikes like Hecklers, Rocky Mountains, .....and Trek Liquids (I know, I know...don't ask) Anyone is open to come. Besides that, Im just looking for someone to ride with.

    You wondered why my name was Intense5point5. Now you know. Got it yesterday and I will tell you that this bike is simply perfect. It is a bit early to say so but it inspires your riding confidence in so many ways. The medium (19" ST) fits me like a glove and I can do some crazy ****. With the relatively worn and outdated components currently installed, It still runs fine and weights 30lbs, 4oz. w/ the K2's old 7lb DJ forks. Expect a Fox Vanilla RLC, Industry Nine AM Wheelset, Red Middleburn cranks, XTR Front derailleur..etc... The works.

    I got a Cannondale Prophet 1000 in July of 2005. I mostly ride closeby in the Blackstone Valley - Rayburn, Hodges, Nam, Ribbon Candy, Singletary, Sutton, Upton SF, and Leominster. My absolute favorite place to ride is Kingdom Trails in VT. Webs, Old Webs, Tody's, Sidewinder - can it get any better?

    GF sugar 2 I bought new around 2002 I think and a specialized rockhopper I just picked up off ebay. The sugar has always been a little to big for my liking so I bought the rockhopper hoping to get rid or the sugar but after getting the rockhopper home there is no way I can get rid of the Sugar. Sadly I have to report I really dont ride anywhere anymore Im hoping to change that this year though.. Wish me luck.

    I ride a Ted Wojcik 29er, almost exclusively at Otis. I ride less now that I have a family of my own, and really mostly ride on weekdays during work breaks.

    My primary riding buddies moved out west, so if you want to ride at Otis midweek (or weekends) send me a PM. I have also been riding less since I usually end up riding solo... so I go running instead.

    My folks live in Warren VT, so I ride there in the summer, as well.

    Only boring people get bored.

    Rode a little of rayburn today. Had a great time but im out of shape like a somma gun. Otherwise it was great. I need to learn the trails better though. Not sure if I started in the right place but I did eventually find the arrows it didnt loop like i think its supposed to though.... Have to work on that.

    I'm new to the area,( just moved from pittsburgh) but i have been exploring, lynn woods, middlesex fells, blue hills, and cutler park. Looking for more places, the closer to jamaica plain the better. I keep reading about B&Ts online and from some pics i have seen it looks amazing. I would be really interested in hooking up with a group ride there, where ever it is.

    Just took it on its maiden voyage today at lynn woods, and it was a dream. The bike is soo buttery smooth and i haven't even really dialed in the suspension yet.

    Hey, I saw you today. I thought about asking to ride the bike as I've never even seen a Mission in person. The huge event at Lynn today was organized by Dieselbikes, (www.dieselbikes.com) who lead group rides all over MA / New England trails. Check 'em out.

    I ride around Boston and Saugus-Boston, I used to race a lot when I was younger then I went to boarding school in Idaho when I was 15 and rode a lot out there, but when I came back I drove and only really started riding in the city when I went to college. I am starting to get back into it, I also just discovered I am about 2 miles from the lynn woods, just I am on the opposite side of where everyone meets.. I don't really have a problem with the technical and almost never a problem with the technical downhill, but the endurance is what kills me. I used to live in Natick and BackBay so I know those areas decently well. If anyone wants to ride sometime in these areas feel free to PM me. Btw im 24 and dont really care what age you are race religion sexual preference what ever I dont care what you do as long as you dont push it on me.

    this is a Giant Canyon limited I got after new years for 300 bucks off a coast guard guy that was leaving RI (craigslist). The lobster on the front is for easy identification and I think it makes it just ugly enough at 1st glance to make it less stolen in the city. They were giving them away in Copley as apart of a Nova Scotia travel thing.


    This is a trek I got off a guy my dad works with that was going to china, it has those kinda cool lean forward forearm handle bars. The frame is to small for me though, Also the computer flew off it when it was on the trailer. so if you want the part I still have let me know

    this is the part of the computer I still have =(

    once again if you need this thing let me know I can give it to you in the city or at lynn woods event, or mail it locally. I don't want any money for it and I don't have any use for it.



    Last but not least my old school Schwinn this was the 1st sweet spot design and one of the last USA made SchwinnsI have grown out the frame quite a bit it is a 17.5 I think If anyone is interested in it or its parts I accept trade goods and mula =) All kinds of stuff, make an offer I will accept just about anything or if you are broke I could probably hook you up with some parts. It has a nice set of Titec HellBent raiser bars I think they are 1 inch lift or maybe 1.5 I cannot remember. The front wheel is in way out in Sturbridge, I used the valve on the tube on a cagiva and forgot to put it back, or bring it back for that matter. This was my 1st Mt Bike and I have had it since new I think for 9 years now. The frame is good and would make a fun single speed project in the future. I like what Jason did with his trek Y frame I am thinking something along those lines. I have a huffy with V brakes under some crap too that guy that went to china gave me too. But other then the brakes that bike is total crap. I don't see me having much do for it in the near future so if anyone wants it that will actually use it in the area I am up for letting it go for like 20 bucks, or trade for something random like a bottle of some Rhine area wine. I have had the bike for ever and would really like to see someone be able to get half the fun out of it that it has given me.

    Thanks! My old bike's frame got too small and I figured I could get away with less travel. I got to spend a few hours on it before it snowed, and it is sweet!

    Here's my ride, '07 Chumba XCL.

    Just moved to Charlestown from San Diego, so I don't know where I ride yet! But I'm guessing Middlesex Fells and Lynn Woods will be favorite spots:

    That's right. I sold the 575 this winter. Loved the ride, but wanted something different. I used the money from the sale to buy a used Salsa FS frame (not yet built) and the Evil (SWEET!!!!). I actually almost got a 456, but the deal on the Sovereign was too hard to pass up. Do you still have your Yeti?

    Welcome to MA - the riding here is great. PM me if you ever ride in the Boston area.

    Nice bike. Welcome to MA. The Fells kind of blows. Most of the good trails are banned by the hiking nazis. Lynn Woods rules. You'll also need to check out Harold Parker and Vietnam. You'll also want to do some summer road trips to Exeter/Ft.Rock, Kingdom Trails, Highland, etc.

    Cheers!

    Good stuff. Are there any group rides around those spots? In other words, I hate to ride alone as I get lost frequently .

    By the way, I have a road trip lined up to Rays in Cleveland on Feb. 28. Super pumped.

    Yeah, group rides galore. You'll see postings once stuff gets ride-able. Local trail knowledge is key around here. Stuff isn't marked too well and there are too many rabbit trails to get sucked into.

    Since I broke the ML I figured I'd update things. The ML was nice but not up to the thrashing that I gave it. I've been on the El Guapo since last June and this thing is tremendous. It's a much better fit for my style of riding and these trails

    Norton Farm area, Gloucester

    Hey Woodyak, I'm just across Dogtown from you! Been in Gloucester for 8 years now, 3 in Rockport before that. I've come across so few bikers in Dogtown over the years...a nice little haven of solitude sometimes.

    Dogtown, B&Ts, Bev Farms, Lynn, Fells, and HP are my favored stompin grounds.

    Pic is of Norton Farm side of DT.

    That would be cool.

    I think I've covered most of Dogtown, but ya never know.

    I've only been in B&Ts 3 times though. I could use some guidence over there for sure!

    I'll drop you a line when either things freeze up enough or clear.

    As you wish. I went over to HP for about an hour today. Was pretty fun, though tiring and very hot. Here are some pics. My first time out on the trails.

    Slightly over-exposed cause I accidentally left my camera in manual mode and didn't adjust anything. Adjusted it best I could with my amatuer skills.


    Jenkins lot gate.


    Ouch. My first battle wound. Happened less than ten minutes in. Those Kona pedals hurt.


    After shower.


    And she did get a little dirty. Rode through a few small patches of mud.

    Ouch!

    HP is a bit technical for a first ride. Still, it's one of my fave places. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    BTW - I find Great Brook Farm to be a great place for beginners. Fun, but less techie, you should give it a shot.

    I mostly ride this Maverick ML7:



    Just got it this spring, and love it to death. It's a lot dirtier now than in the photo.

    I do most of my riding at the Fells, simply because it's really close to home and I can get there pretty quick without having to drive.

    I agree that Great Brook is a good spot for beginners. It's got some easy-but-fun stuff, and some optional tougher stuff when you're ready to step it up. And compared to a lot of New England trails, its pretty well mapped and marked. I go there from time to time because it's a fun laid-back ride, and I know the trail system pretty well so I can go ride for a few hours without having to consult a map or hunt around to find the good stuff.

    Otis is pretty cool, but too far away to be worth the trip to me -- except in the winter when it's the only place not snowed over. (Actually, some of the Great Brook trails are open to bikes year round, and are a lot of fun in the winter once the snowshoers and hikers have packed the snow down a bit.)

    I really like what I've seen of Harold Parker and Lynn Woods, but I don't know those trail systems so well, and recently I haven't been in the mood to put effort into learning a new area. So I usually just hit the Fells.

    Thx I'll have to try Great Brook sometime soon. Yeah there were some spots I hit that were well above my skill lvl, and I got quite lost as to lack of markers. But I did have fun.

    Boderland and Foxboro SP are both close to my work, and I also ride some silly little trails near my home in Attleboro.

    Finally got off the old Trek hardtail, will be riding this for now on:

    Here's the rig:



    I ride through Medfield, Dover, Sherborn and Westwood. Most trails are public, but I have permission for crossing private trails to connect some loops.

    Yep, I did point it down.
    Got to ride it a bit and I know I will love it. We should ride when the snow melts and the trails dry up.

    I ride mostly at Callahan Park because I live close enough to bike over there. I ride up at Sunday River a lot too. I'll head over to Vietnam once in a while too.

    Here's my new bike I built up over the winter: 09 FSR XC Pro

    Intense 5.5 EVP

    Hi Guys,

    First post on the local forum. Live in West Boylston but grew up in Stow, MA so I hit Leominster, Trout Brook (Holden), Delaney (Stow), and some power lines downhill out in West Boylston (gnarly and friggin dangerous!).

    here's the ride: 2005 Intense 5.5 EVP. Debadged 2007 Fox Talas 140 RLC, XTR Dual Control, Avid Mechanicals (hate fluid and don't trust hydro lines), XTR rear derailleur, XT BP front derailleur, etc, etc

    My bikes

    I get bored easily, so I ride all over.
    Douglas State Park
    Borderland
    F. Gilbert Hills
    Ribbon Candy
    Fells
    Vietnam
    Adams Farm in Walpole, MA
    Wrentham State Forrest

    Mt. A in ME
    FOMBA in ManchVegas

    Here are my bikes, which the pics won't load:
    2002 Red SC Superlight
    2003 White Specialized Epic Pro
    1998 Trek 8900

    All my bikes are 1X9 except the Trek which toggles between a singlespeed and a 1X9 rig. I'm looking into longer travel bikes so as to have some variety, cause these are all pretty much XC. See everyone out there.

Right now I ride at Massasoit, Freetown SF, Gordon College/Chebacco, Weetamoo Woods in Tiverton, RI, been to Lynn Woods once but I didn't find anything great, I'm sure it's there, I just went to the wrong areas.

    first post

    Hello,I'm new to the forum and just getting back to riding after about a 12 year break.Figured I would post a pic of my rig.Not as fancy as some,but seems to be working so far.Moved to the north shore about 3 years ago,and started riding this year.So far I have ridden at Lynn woods,harold parker,willowdale,bradley palmer,and once at highland mountain bike park.Bought the bike last fall and spent the winter doing upgrades(nothing for flash,just making it strong).

    Wow-
    Some nice stuff in here.

    I have 4 bikes, one road and 3 MTB to choose from. I ride mostly on trails in Fitchburg(Burbank Hospital trail area), and my running club did a trail race up Lynn Woods the other night- so I rode up the fire roads with one of my Cannondales to get pictures

    I work in North Reading- so I gotta get into Harold Parker- I hear its sweet stuff. Someone took my into Leominster State Forest- from the upper end of Parmenter Road(off Elm St), and did a bunch of small trails on both sides of Parmenter. I wasn't really ready for that stuff- but I'd try it again.

    I have a 1994 Cannondale Delta-V 500
    a 1999 Schwinn HomeGrown
    a 1999 Cannondale F4000
    a 2005 Lemond Sarthe

    I try to ride each of them as a part of my daily commute as well. I park near I-495/Rt 38 in Lowell and ride down rt 38 and back roads to work. For some reason- I seem to have more fun and be more comfortable on the old Cannondale Delta-V.

    I go to Hampshire College. So far I have been riding local trails but I am excited to go explore new trails.
    Just finished building this bike. I don't know what it weighs but I am guessing in the 23-24 pound range.

    Fave riding spots - the Fells, Landlocked Forest (Beddy/PR), Great Brook, and my local Callahan/Nobscot woods. I also try to get to Kingdom Trails, Massabesic, and Otis as much as I can.

    Steeds - Dawg Dlux, Jamis Exile 29er

    See you out there

    Listen! NFL Jerseys!

    I purchased the jersey to support this hometown hero's great year of SuperBowl and Pro Bowl honors. The FansEdge rules as the jersey was awesome and arrived quicker than expected. Excellent product and service definitely will keep me coming back to the FansEdge for all my sportswear purchases.http://www.google.com/

    Right now, I ride a Trek 3900, no mods except accessories that have nothing to do with performance. I live in Shrewsbury, and ride in all the towns surrounding here, Tend to explore new areas allllll the time, high power lines, and any state forests/reservoirs when possible.

    I'm in the market for a new HT jumper MTB, but heres my current setup from about 6 months ago(only pic I got of her)

    Cape Cod here. Getting back into biking after years of lame or no riding. Live near the Trail of Tears and have been there twice in the last week. Bike is a '99 C'dale Raven 700SX with Spinergy wheels and 6 bolt Avid mechanical brakes. Thinking of a new bike, but will wait a bit. Photo taken this morning near the "highest elevation in Barnstable".

    It sure is. It was a geared bike last year. The "tensioner" is an old xt der.. I still have all the parts to turn it back into a geared bike if I so desire.

    Another new rider (at least mtb-wise... I've been road-biking around the area quite a bit). Just got a Motobecane Outcast 29er (a single speed hardtail) delivered yesterday. It's assembled and I took it out for a shakedown run around the Turtle Pond area in W. Roxbury/Hyde Park because it's biking-distance from my house. Hoping to try it out Saturday on some real rides. I've got a friend on the north shore, so thinking maybe Dogtown.

    I just moved to Foxboro, MA from Northern California......gotta get used to this winter weather riding. Don't really have a favorite trail out here yet. I've ridden F. Gilbert Hills once so far, but plan on checking out Vietnam and Borderland as soon as I can. As for my bike, I have a 2009 Kona Hoss Hardtail, and a 2011 Trek Scratch Air 9 which I picked up on Friday.
    Here's a pic of the Scratch.

    Looking for Seekonk Area riders

    I'm starting to blaze some trails in the Seekonk, Rehobeth area and could use some assistance and riding pals. I've been down here for about 18 months and haven't found any other real riders or decent trails.

    You are smack in the middle of some good riding - Lincoln Woods in RI and Freetown State Forest in MA.

    I really don't want to come off as holier than thou or a narc, but are you in touch with the land managers/owners where you are blazing trails? If not, it's a good way to get a promising riding area shut down.

    I'd check out these sites for more places to ride and help building trails:
    Southeastern Massachusetts New England Mountain Bike Association
    RI NEMBA

    Happy Trails

    Very true, Chris. I am currently speaking with one land manager, the other area I'm working on I have not located any info for. I've ridden LW, but not Freetown yet. I'm looking for as local as possible since there is an abundance of land in the area.

    Nice bike!

    How's that Ikon treating you on the front? I have one on the rear of my HT, and have been thinking about running it up front, but worry about the lack of cornering knobs.

    BTW - It looks like your chain could be shortened a link or so. Might cut down on some chain slap.

    Antonio - The Ikons are riding nice for me, I have not noticed any issues with losing traction in the front on hard corners but I don't yet have a lot of miles on the bike. I also tend to run whatever tires I have and don't experiment much. This is my first time with a 29er and tubeless so I am still figuring out tire pressures and overall handling,

    Thanks for the tip on dropping a link - have not noticed chain slap yet but will keep an eye on it.

    There's some GREAT riding in the Beverly/Manchester/Gloucester area. Greenwood ave is very close to the Beverly Farms stop. Gspot is a couple miles from the Manchester stop. B&Ts is very close to the West Gloucester stop. I'm not sure exactly how, but I'm fairly certain you can ride from Beverly to Gloucester on almost all singletrack. So you could take the train to Beverly ride to Gloucester and take the train back. Pretty sweet

    Willowdale is also only a couple miles from the Ipswich station.

    Nice bikes and nice Kuat. I love my Kuat rack and the customer support is awesome even a year later.

    This is my latest addition to my fleet:



    This one will be my urban assault bike. I'm usually riding around the streets of Boston anyway. You can find me around the Charles!

    Live in Hudson NH. Ride mostly at Lowell / Dracut State Forest and Russell Mill. Coming off a 1997 Avalanche GT hard tail, this is my first full suspension bike and I can not get enough of it.

    Why did I wait so long???

    I've lived in northern MA and southern NH. So i ride both states. This is actually Bear Brook in NH, on top of Catamount hill. A bit of a hike for southern MA residents, but i suggest you make the trip

    I'm out in Western Mass. I ride the old and new trails at Facing Rock in Ludlow, and also hit up Earls and B-St on my Sette Ace (photo to come). I also commute from Ludlow to Palmer as often as I can over Red Bridge on the "Old Lady" pictured here. It was my first mountain bike: 1999 Speshy Hard Rock Comp and she got me back into the sport and saved my life 2 years ago. Treated her to new hoops, tires, crank and cushy seat for her new role as my commuter.

    I live in North Central MA. I have ridden Maudsley State Park, Lynn Woods, Quabbin Reservoir, Tully Mtn., And Little Monadnock Family trails in NH. I can't post pics yet, but I ride my old dependable 96 Klein. I only live 25 min from Leominster, but have never ridden there, hopefully this summer.

    Old faithfull.

    Just moved back to Massachusetts after 5+ years in DC. Live in the Western 'burbs, go-to ride is Beddy but enjoy RM and the Fells (especially now that Orange is legal!) as well. Haven't had a chance to ride anything else yet but looking to explore.

    Here's my new ride, present to myself for getting a job up here. Thanks Brian and JRA! And no, I don't ride anywhere near well enough to warrant such a nice bike.
