The TNR crew might be riding Ascutney,
But don’t drive from Burlington, Pomfret or Putney.
The weather has plans of its own, and it’s frightening,
Claiming clusters of cloudbursts, high winds and lightning.
Riding’s still possible, but I’m posting publicity
That it’s threatening to thrash us with bolts of ‘lectricity.
We’re wary of weather which could cause an accident
To riders of all kinds: the old and the masculine,
The fast ones, the slow ones, the young and the female,
So, by Four, check our websites, Facebook or email.
If we ride, it will be from the ski-side parking lot at 5:45. The trails will be wet. Too wet for the rocks on Jim's Jam, and much of the Town Forest side.
