My bad. Either I’m confusing you with someone else or just confused. Usually it’s the latter.
I was out Sunday too and Monday. Perfect weather. Did the whole Loop, about 190 miles. Sadly....Lot of Paving going on the Westside. Stayed at the Blackberry River Inn in Norfolk, CT, 4.5 miles to Wheeler Rd/Barry Hill Rd.
The Blackberry River Inn....

I used to to go cross country skiing there,nice trail across the street.
Had a nice little ride on the TMT this weekend. Such a nice easy and enjoyable ride. We took a detour in Becket to see an abandoned quarry. Highly recommend stopping there. We didn't see much of anyone else out there, has everyone packed their bikes away for the season!?
Not done for the season, but a busy time of year. Thinking about running the loop south of Rt 143 Friday, if I get the rest of the outside chores done. My limit for riding is usually first road salt.
Looks like y'all had a good day of it!
I’ve ridden the full-day loop from Greenfield (down to the CT border, and the Alternate route back to Greenfield) several times, but we usually do it on weekdays. Never seen anyone else out on the route other than whoever I came to ride with. It just doesn’t get all that much traffic, and that is a good thing, IMO.
Should probably go out and ride it again this year before the snow flies.
Really enjoyed the northern 45 miles or so on Sunday morning. Chilly but beautiful. Thanks for mapping out this ride and I hope to do the whole thing one of these days. Need a little more time, and daylight, than I had Sunday.
Since this may be the last warmish day I'm heading up with a friend from Enfield CT to Greenfield and head southend see how much we can do on the today TM. So if you see orange Buell Uly and a V Strom give a wave.
Cold morning enjoy
Watch for ice. It's below freezing up in the hilltowns. Nice day to ride before the snow though.
Well it turns out we started to go the ride to "the beach route"not the TM, which also ends,starts in Greenfield. Things where going well when just getting into Miller Falls state park ( i think thats where we where) I get a check engine light on the Buell along with my voltage light I added flashing low battery! I stop, wait for my friend to notice I am no longer behind him and shut the bike off, thinking no worry I have my little jump battery on me. That didn't work, it was down to %65 which I guess wasn't enough to crank the big old V twin. So he rode home and got his trailer and came back for me. I had to do the tow of shame. Not sure what the issue is. I put in a new voltage VR and stator last fall. Maybe the New VR failed.
Last year doing the Trans Mass N to S my friend on his Guzzi Quota got a flat north of Otis and had to get a tow back we did have a nice lunch.
Congratulations, TMT! Some of the route is now also part of the NEBDR. Becket center to 143 in Peru.
I took some of the great little bits of the TMT to incorporate into the NEBDR. A tad under 12 miles is shared between the two routes.
Great job ...looks like you guys made a awesome NEBDR route
We hope everyone will enjoy the track - looking forward to feedback from riders who venture out on it this year!
I seen the premier at Union garage in Brooklyn,....looks like a perfect route...can't wait to tackle some of it this year
It was a great place for a screening - we had a fun day and evening in Brooklyn!
I'm looking forward to riding the TMT for the first time this spring. Need to pick up a GPS and do some planning first. I'm in southern CT so it'll be a bit of a haul.
