Red-White & Blue BBQ- We Try Again

After some uncooperative weather on the 1st we will celebrate America’s birthday with the 5th annual “Red, White and Blue” RidewithUs-FrontMountain Bike ride and BBQ on Monday, July 15th at Bicycles Unlimited in Greenfield! Join us at 6pm for a 1.5-2 hour ride on the infamous red, white and blue trails on the Rocky Ridge surrounding Poet’s Seat Tower. There will be a shorter, beginner-friendly route in addition to the regular intermediate option – great day to bring your friends, kids and significant others! Afterwards, relax and refuel with hamburgers, hot dogs and cold drinks, provided by Bicycles Unlimited and PV-NEMBA. Feel free to bring a dish to share as well as your beverage of choice (we will have non-alcoholic options available); folding chairs are always a good idea as well. A rough headcount is appreciated – please let me know by Saturday if you plan on coming. 🙂
The Greenfield ridge is rocky at the top, and smooth with rocks and roots in the lower parts. We will start with a warm up on paved and gravel roads over to Highland Pond where we will transition to some easy single track that will gradually lead us to the top of the ridge. After crossing Mountain Rd we’ll finish on red – white – blue and hopefully catch the sun setting over Greenfield on top of Poets Seat.

This ride will start at the Bicycles Unlimited parking lot at 6:00pm. Bicycles Unlimited is located at 322 High Street in Greenfield, next to the car wash.
