General Event Information:
Bring your whole family and join us in Groton, CT on November 6, 2021 for the Mountain Bike Adventure Series ride! The route will visit Bluff Point State Park, Haley Farm State Park, the Town of Groton’s Mortimer Wright Nature Preserve and Groton Open Space Association’s (GOSA’s) The Merritt Family Forest.
The properties offer a wide variety of riding and activities for the whole family. The varied terrain is perfect for all riders offering easy fire roads, fun cross country single track, and even some technical playgrounds for the advanced rider. Bring your group and explore the flagged routes!
A 6-7 mile led kids' ride will depart from the registration tent at 9:45 a.m. Kids must have an accompanying adult, a helmet, water and snacks, and a trail-suitable bike, and will need to register. Pace will be geared to safely suit all riders who join.
Meet and get to know GOSA and all they have done for the open spaces within Groton, CT including their X-Town trail.
Along with the great riding, there are other activities for the whole family with great hiking on the four properties with views of Mumford Cove and the Thames and Poquonnock Rivers. Bluff Point activities include a sand beach and tide pools, and a launching area for kayaks, canoes and paddle boards (“car top-carry in" only). Fishing is allowed with proper license.
Online Pre-Registration is REQUIRED and will be limited to 160 participants.
Sign up early to secure your spot!
Because this event is a fundraiser there will be no refunds.
Please also note, Connecticut now has a parking fee at Bluff Point SP and others for vehicles with an out-of-state license.
