    Big Ride - Pittstown State Forest & Grafton Lakes State Park 7/12

    SMBA is hosting a big ride in Pittstown State Forest & Grafton Lakes State Park in a few weeks.

    Date: Sat 7/12
    Time: 10am start
    Location: Meet in Pittstown State Forest – main parking lot.

    The route will be to ride some of the singletrack in Pittstown, then climb Long Pond Ext (Kautz Hollow) to Grafton, ride singletrack in Grafton, stop at the beach for a break, then bomb down Long Pond Ext and finish up on the trails in Pittstown.

    The ride will be 20+ miles long. Lots of climbing, descending & technical riding! Fairly demanding, but we’ll do it at a casual pace. There are a number of bail-out points along the route if you need to cut it short.

    Bring plenty of water, food, etc. We’ll have a sag wagon that can carry any extra stuff you would like to bring. We’ll meet up with the wagon at Long Pond beach where we can take a break, have lunch, maybe a swim.

    After party in Pittstown hosted by SMBA! BBQ, Beer, campfire!

    So who’s in?!?!

    Sounds like a plan. I'll definitely try to make it down again.

    Ah, just like "the good old days"! Used to love that ride. We'll be at BMX race, otherwise would love to be there & especially ride the new trails in Pittstown.

    Don't forget about the Big Ride this Saturday! We're expecting a big turnout!! We'll break into at least 3 groups.

    The weather forecast looks perfect! Trails conditions are prime! Should be a great day! Can't wait!!

    Hope to see you there!

    I hope a ride like this happens again there as it conflicts with the Ascutney Fest.

    Yes, we plan on doing this as an annual event!

    During this time of year it's nearly impossible to schedule an event that is not in conflict with another event, race, etc. But we'll schedule next years event well in advance.

    Thanks!

    Big thanks to everyone who helped pull the event together!

    We'll definitely be doing it again next year!!
