    Milford, MA

    I have a business trip to Milford MA in a few weeks. Are there any trails in the area that I could a ride in before the work day? Would love to have an 1.5 hour loop.

    Here's some details from when I asked about Vietnam a while ago. Parking behind Wendy's was perfect, just follow the paved bike path back.

    If you happen to be riding that Thursday I'm usually there most Thursday nights as part of a group ride, I work about 15 minutes East of there off the pike. You can always use a GPS or the map route as well, but if you park at the lot near Wendys around 5-6pm on just about any week night you can usually find at least a few people heading in. Completely up to you, I'm happy to give a tour if Thursday happens to be your night, otherwise I'm sure you'll run into others. Just about everyone I've met out there has been really cool to ride with.

    Sorry, maybe hijacking the thread a little bit.

    I ride the paved trail a lot with my wife (from the Hopkinton line to Milford center), but I've always wondered about going off into the trails there at the beginning of the bike path.

    I don't really know anybody else around in my age group (37) that bikes. Is this something I could handle on my own?

    I'm not looking to do X-Games stuff. I live a few miles away and I just want to get off road and ride (more challenging than a paved path, you know?). Also, I don't have any concerns about physical demands -- I'm fit and agile.

    Thanks,
    David

    I see plenty of people your age and older riding. What kind of bike do you ride? The trails at Vietnam would not be much fun on any kind of hybrid bike. You'll want a "serious" mountain bike. Plenty of people ride big bikes on all the stunts in there, but you can get around the trails and even hit most of the features on an entry level hardtail (all stunts have go-arounds as well). If it's your first time riding off road it won't be easy when you're starting out. But just get out and and give a it a go and after a handful of rides you'll find yourself staying on the bike more and walking less

    Don't be afraid to approach a group of riders on the trails and ask them for directions to find your way around or even if you can tag along at the back of their group (this is a great way to get better). Most people out on the trails are reasonably friendly.

    Thanks, birdman.

    I've had an entry level hardtail for about 5 years. It has 100's of miles of roads and trails on it with no problems.

    I appreicate your information. I might head off some morning to get lost in there for 1/2 a day.
