SMBA hosting 2nd Annual Epic Ride from Pittstown to Grafton

Last year’s ride was so much fun we’ve decided to do it again!

Saturday 7/25 / 10:00AM / Pittstown State Forest

The ride will start on the SMBA trails in Pittstown State Forest and then ascend into Grafton Lakes State Park. We’ll take a mid-ride break in Grafton that will be supported by the sag-wagon. We’ll ride the trails in Grafton, then descend into Pittstown and finish on the Pittstown trails.

SMBA will be throwing a post-ride after party with BBQ and frosty beverages. The ride will be approx 20 miles long with nearly 3K feet vertical. We’ll break into several groups based on ability. Bring plenty of water, snacks and energy. It will be a nice long ride! Also bring any food, drinks, etc that you would like to send on the sag-wagon.

There is no cost for participation in the ride, but donations to the club, or SMBA membership is greatly appreciated. Your support for the club is what gives us the ability to build & maintain kick-ass trails and host fun events like this! Please RSVP on facebook.
