If you are an active intermediate to advanced mountain biker who gets out and rides trails regularly (rather than just lurking on the meetup site), this may be the group for you. Our primary focus is riding trails, preferably singletrack. Our rides rarely, if ever, include boring stuff like rail trails, pavement, smooth or flat terrain, except when necessary to get to the "good stuff ". Most rides are local to western & central Connecticut and southeastern New York, with occasional trips outside that general area. We do not generally host any rides for beginner riders, sorry. Many established members are able to organize and lead rides; there are not just a few designated "ride leaders" in the group. ALL members must be willing to always use the RSVP system so that we can keep things organized. That means you must have internet access regularly.  (having the Meetup app on a smartphone is a big plus too.)

Some of the many places we like to ride: (in CT unless noted)

    Nepaug State Forest

    Trumbull - Indian Ledge

    West Hartford Reservoir

    Penwood State Park

    Tyler Mill, Wallingford

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
