November 10

  • Rad, Rod, Ride: This is kind of epic. Joseph has designed this three day, overnight adventure that begins in Hartford and will take you way the heck out of town. Here’s part of the official description: “I’ve had an adventure ride in mind for a while, and it’s high time to make it happen. As some may know, I grew up in Washington state doing a lot of fly-fishing, and when I went to college the reason I started mountain biking was to get faster access to good fishing water. Somehow, the mtn biking took over, and I’ve never fulfilled the bike to fish mission. I’m putting out the word, and inviting those that are up for a solid, fun, challenge. If your reading this you have sense of adventure, a desire for going beyond the standard route, and at least (maybe) a passing interest in fishing. The objective is to stack great trail/gravel/farm roads between fishing/camping spots somewhere off the beaten path. We’ll fish for 2-3hr each morning and evening, and hopefully, have a great stop at a bar/brewery/other for lunch. Your method of fishing doesn’t really matter, though dynamite fishing may be frowned upon. The route, particularly day one is tough, and all should be self-sufficient, with some experience/competence riding gnarly terrain, with significant elevation, and 3-5hrs of riding. The ride, however, will not be fast. Attempts at such won’t make you friends unless you agree to start the campfire, pour whiskey shots for everyone, and to carry an extra tent the next day. It’s the off-season, y’all. It’s a chance to make some new friends and enjoy some great riding. Fat-bikes, plus bikes, mtn bikes are all welcome and appropriate for the ride.” Go read the rest of the details.
