Is "Winsted to Green" big bike friendly?
It's the same kind of riding(gravel, dirt) as the TMT.
OK...drove up from Long Island and stayed in Becket, to do the "Real TMT" , then the Winsted to Greenfield route. I started at 8:30 am on my WRR, and headed south on the TMT starting from Johnson Rd., got back to Becket at 4:30 pm. The Loop was about 210 miles. Hafta say this is one nice Loop. No reason to do a there and back on the "Winsted to Greenfield" any more. I stopped once for gas at Neighbors. This is where the two loops intersect. Real nice day of riding.... Thanks Massachusetts
Hich I'm from Port Jefferson thanks for that post I'm going to try loop next week
On the South end, I turned around at Smith Rd & Losaw Rd. (a dirt road) and reset my route for the "Winsted to Greenfield" Loop. On the North End, (Upper Rd. and Hawks Rd.). I didn't need to go to those gas stops in Winsted & Greenfield. You can hit "Neighbors" twice if ya hafta. There are 2 detours around Train over passes, no biggie, just follow the detour signs.
you're parked in front of a fire hydrant!!! whadd'ya trying to give dualsporters a bad name??
You ride right thru the center of this Place. Take it slow. Dancers everywhere. The dirt roads after you pass thru are pretty nice too!

That alternate route will make a nice loop, looking forward to trying it
Days are getting shorter, to pull off the whole loop in day light ya gotta do it soon. The pic below is on "Nobody's Rd", yes that's the name of the road.
Did the "alt" version on Saturday. Pretty fun, especially with the cross country ski trails included towards the end. Unfortunately there are 2 bridges out nearly side by side on Frost Road and Summit Hill Road in Washington MA.
Somebody should do a route sheet version of the alt route.
Can a mileage and mileage at turns be done with a GPS?
what roads did you use to avoid the bridges?
Backtracked a bit on Pittsfield Rd and took Shultze Rd to Lovers Ln to avoid the first bridge, then took a left on MA8 (instead of continue straight on to Stone House Rd) until we hit Middlefield Rd and Washington Rd East to get back on track.
Unfortunately the 2nd reroute is a bit out of the way. FWIW don't take Bullard Hill Rd to try to cross, unless you don't mind a steep hill descent, crossing RR tracks and a steep hill climb.
Just follow the Detour Signs....part off the adventure. Looks Like they will be working on Bridges for awhile.
This is kinda funny.....I find most of the turns in this neck of the woods "Blind Turns".
a couple of us from LI are going to go up the alternate and back down the TMT this Sat.
Were the detour signs enough to find your way around or should i plan a route around them?
Oh man I was planning to go this weekend but I forgot I have a wedding to go to....going to be awesome weather too
The first bridge out didn't have a detour sign for the road outlet I came out on. It wasn't until you started heading south that the detour sign was posted.
The 2nd one did have a visible detour sign IIRC.
I thought it was easy to follow the "Detour Signs". Plus if you are using a GPS it will help Guide you around.
