This group was founded in 2010 with a vision of Social Bike riding with the no rider left behind mentality. It laid the foundation of social bicycle riding in Connecticut.
This is a local Co-ed biking group ages 21 and up that likes to ride their bikes in a group setting. This is a non competitive group that is created to build social networks of bike riders. The idea is to get people out and form a "Trail Riding Community" statewide.
This is a social group, which means we put social and fun first. Anyone looking to race or brag about their bike might not fit in too well here. We have a variety of rides of every kind and skill level. LTRA is a judgement free zone. Whether your bike is expensive or found in a dumpster, everyone is welcome here at LTRA. This group is laid back with the goal of exploring new trails, meeting new friends and trying new places to eat.
Each event will have a detailed description of what the ride is about so it gives each member a chance to understand what each ride is all about.
We are all about fun, but safety first. Please wear your helmet.
LTRA is open to people who enjoy life and are not easily offended. Bikers who are compared to Lance Armstrong, Greg Lamond, or anyone attempting "X-Games" stunts are NOT going to enjoy this leisure activity especially for these rides. On our casual rides, there is a no "Lancing Policy." That means this ride is not a full throttle Olympic time trial. Faster Riders must understand the speed of the group. So if you feel like getting in shape, have a good sense of humor and want to meet new friends, welcome aboard!
LTRA is not liable for any injuries that may occur while attending our events. By RSVPing yes to attend any event or showing up to participate, you acknowledge that you accept full responsibility of yourself as well as guests you may bring, waiving any right to hold the group and its members responsible. There are many pictures posted of many different events. Please let me know if you do not want to be photographed.
