Online registration is now CLOSED for the Willowdale Mountain Bike Ride on Sunday. Feel free to join us on Sunday morning!
Did you know that Massachusetts DCR's Willowdale State Forest offers over 40 miles of trails ranging from fire roads to single tracks? Join ECTA as we explore this extensive trail network on a novice/intermediate level mountain bike ride led by ECTA Director Scott Bumpus, owner of Seaside Cycle.
From 8 to 10am on Sunday, July 24th we'll cover about 5-8 miles of trail, which should take about 1.5 - 2 hours at a no-drop pace. The terrain will be tailored to make sure that people do not get in over their heads. Willowdale SF offers great single track that has some roots, rocks, side obstacles and climbs, but most of the terrain in this area is mainly fast and smooth single track.
Meet at the Willowdale Meadow Parking Lot located on Ipswich Road in Topsfield. "Wheels down" at 8:00 am, so please arrive a few minutes early to unload and check in. Helmets required, water bottles recommended.
From Route 1, take Ipswich Road heading east. After passing Asbury Street on the right, the parking area will be just over 1/4 mile farther down Ipswich Road (If you reach the Ipswich/Topsfield town line you have gone too far). Parking available on both sides of the street.
Questions or comments, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 978-468-1133. This event is free for active ECTA members, $20 for non-members.
