Lowell-Dracut-Tyngsboro State Forest

A week-and-a-half ago I went on one of NEBC's fall mt bike rides in Lowell-Dracut-Tyngsboro State Forest. I always have so much fun riding there. There's plenty to challenge the experienced mt biker but most of it is still rideable for someone like me with less-than-stellar skills. I was the slowest in the group but people either didn't mind or were very polite about waiting for me. :) One of the things I enjoy is that I end up riding much better when I'm chasing the NEBC guys. Going faster means less time to worry about crashing and more momentum to deal with rocks, small logs, and hills. Norm B., who built a lot of the trails, was very encouraging. He just sent out some pics -- he took all of these except for the one of him (yellow jersey), which I took with his camera.

That is a beautiful looking park. I need to get a mountain bike one of these days... or at least something with fatter tires.
