    I didnít realize youíre leaving from Montpelier, Iím leaving from Middlesex and usually cut out Montpelier entirely. This route is also really dirt and gravel heavy so I wonít be trying it out again until mid-April at the earliest when the dirt roads dry out. This particular ride was from last fall.

    If this was the DNC forum this thread would be, "Flatten the Bern".

    2021 NE - Flatten That Berm

    I was actually in southern New Hampshire this weekend and meant to reach out. It seems most areas are free and clear with dry weather this weekend (and 50 on Sunday). Has anyone ridden Clyde Pond?

    Yeah man, you should have!

    I've never been down to Clyde.

    Heavy winds again probably brought more stuff down.

    Spent too much time farting around with this yesterday after the ride. And it kinda sucks The sharky boulder on the right it too sketchy.

    That bots thread in the PR is sounding pretty negative on the longevity of this place. Are you guys in the Fb group The Powder Zone? If you use Fb you should join so we don't lose the NE role call.

    Snowmelt, rain and lotsa wind has made the trails a real mess. I'm going to try to carve out a few hours this weekend to go do some maintenance, hopefully I can make it happen.

    Yeah, my local spot is definitely not ready. Did a quick half hour spin with a bunch of walking around the soft spots.

    So a local guy has a couple of these things and they've been riding our trails lately. The area does not allow motor vehicles. It's kind of a bummer as they're rutting stuff up. I'm all for fun and I am an old motocross guy, but these are a bit much for the specific mtn bike trails we built.

    These are probably pretty fun in the right place!

    My thought is if you want to ride that on bike trails, you damn well better be part of the trail crew fixing your ruts on Sunday.

    A state park I used to ride when I lived in Boston just got torn to shreds by a group of e-dirt bikes just like the one you linked. A few dudes just shamelessly rode them all over the park while it was soaking wet. Makes you wonder why they thought that was okay.

    Meanwhile, my sciatic nerve back injury is becoming less fucked every day. Stoked to at least grind some gravel next week if the weekend isn't a total flood.

    That thing has absolutely no business being on publicly maintained MTB trails. Period. I am constantly amazed by what people rationalize as acceptable behavior/practices on a public good. Its bad enough that people regularly ignore trail closures, but that is just way over the line.

    Yep, many miles of trails in backyard and lake does offset the absolute shit skiing here.

    I'm generally sympathetic to ebikers. Not for me, but I see their utility. That does not look like an ebike, but a small electric dirt bike.

    Definitely an eMotorcycle. This thing has big tires and footpegs without pedals.

    Ebikers are fine if they're legally allowed, which they are in this spot.
