Rain

Looks like rain coming in about 6:30 or 7:00. See you next week.

TNR at TF lot

Roses are red Violets are purple Last week we fled This week: full circle Back to the mountain Back to our home base The home we can count on Like which there is no place. We will arrive At town forest lot At five forty-five Ride at six on the dot. Okay, so I recycled this post, but can you find this (above) pile of rocks on the ride?

WTF Trail Day

The Weathersfield Town Forest has a network of old doubletrack trails that the town is reopening for multi-use recreation. Phase one, this Saturday the 19th is to clean up the windfall (trees and branches) and a bit of weed whacking, so it can be used for hiking and skiing this fall and winter. Next spring, we'll make the treadway more bike friendly for some great beginner loops added to what's available on Swoops and Loops. (Also some great future singletrack opportunities.) STAB will be joining with other Weathersfield volunteers at 8:45 at the Swoops & Loops parking. Bring tools for cutting logs, branches and brush, with appropriate safety gear, plus water, snack and gloves. Per usual

Trail Closings 10/5&6

Saturday 10/5 all Ascutney Trails will be closed to mountainbikes from 8:00 AM to noon. This closure applies to all Ascutney Trails (except Swoops & Loops on Rte 44A.) There will be many horses and riders from one end of the network to the other. Be aware that horses may be present in the parking lot in the afternoon, and on some adjacent roads during the whole day. Be prepared to stop, talk to the horses and riders, and then give them a wide berth. Thank you for your help in keeping all involved safe. Sunday 10/5 the skiside half of Ascutney Trails will be closed to mountainbikes from 8:00 AM to noon. The town forest side will remain open
