    Thursday? Why don't you guys ride over to the Log House Restaurant on Rt. 44 in Barkhamsted. We have our Berkshire Trail Riders meeting there on Thursday night. Most of us get there around 7:30 to eat before the meeting. We're the club that brought you the Berkshire Big Adventure on May 20-21. We'd love for you to check us out.

    neither am I. Some of us have transitioned to adv. I still help out with the competition events; I usually handle signup, then go watch the slaughter.

    I work the events and ride some, but I'm in the club so I can eat at the Log House Restaurant on the first Thursday every month. :D

    From the Tag thread...

    A few of my favorites:

    Yelping Hill Rd in West Cornwall
    Wangum Rd in Falls Village
    North Goshen Rd in Goshen
    River Rd in West Cornwall (not a great road, but cool because you get to keep jumping RR tracks)
    Macedonia Brook Rd in Kent
    Romford Rd in Washington Depot (might be closed right now)
    Judds Bridge/Walker Brook/Battle Swamp in Roxbury

    That should be enough to get you started, will add more later.

    Ok, working on a few routes, will post some maps next week.

    Any of the NW crowd interested in meeting for breakfast at Roxbury Market tomorrow - 7/9 say 8:30? I'm recovering from pneumonia so all NDR events are on hold until I am strong enough to lead a full day ride.

    Would love to meet some of you guys & gals!
