The morning dew was crunchy, frosty and cold this morning!!! Took the fat bike out for a shakedown this morning. Had to make sure all was good with it before the cold rain and snow gets here tomorrow. Hopefully more snow than rain we don’t need the trails to turn into black muddy rivers. You might as well go get some! The trails are riding fast and every time that wheel turns round bound to cover just a little more ground, so go get some!

The ground was a bit frosty this morning and the rocks and roots were a bit slippery! But should be a great weekend to get out and get some!

Continuation from our last post...Please, please, please, heed this property owner’s wishes. If you come across this sign north of Cowles Park, please turn around! Thank you in advance! It’d be a shame if we lost access to trails...

PSA: A section of private property north of Cowles park has been closed to riding by the owner’s. There is active hunting on the property. Trail blockages and caution tape have been put in place. Please heed these trail closures, and respect the land owners desires, as your safety will be an issue on their private property. Thank you!
.
General description of the area to avoid is as follows, and its general location is marked in red on the attached map and the area being hunted actually extends further north than depicted (Cowles Park northern boundary is noted at bottom right of map):
.
* North of Cowles Park
* North side of Hatchet Hill Road
* South side of Holcomb Street
* East side of the Concord Drive neighborhood
* West side of the blue / Metacomet trail.

Foggy, humid, slick dawn patrol. Dirt was super tacky, leaves held together, but roots and rocks were slippery...mostly cloudy, slight chance of showers today should keep conditions about the same. Hopefully things dry out a little more in the sun tomorrow. Then slight chance of showers again Sunday. Go get some and have fun!

Happy Halloween!

Despite 4 inches of rain, the East side trails have dried up and are ready to ride. A ton of trees and debris came down during the storm but the Cowles gnomes were already out in full force and managed to clear it all, thanks guys! The west side reports are still coming in so we'll try to update you on conditions there when we get them.

Hey All! A lot of rain has fallen at Cowles, so let’s please give the trails some time to dry out before riding them again (at least a day or two). Also once you do get out riding again please keep us informed of any downed trees that need to be taken care of, thanks!

Amazing what team work can accomplish! 230 feet of boardwalk over wetlands laid down in a day thanks to this hardworking #nemba crew made up of local trail users and those who love #CowlesPark. Thank you Createx Colors of East Granby for your generous donation which made this boardwalk possible and East Granby Parks and Rec for your support. Come out and ride the orange trail!

PSA: All, the town has asked us to spread the following message: When the Cowles main parking lot exceeds its capacity, please do not park along RT187 / South Main Street. Being a busy road this is seen as a safety issue. Alternatively, you can park on Tunxis Avenue just past Wynding Hills Road. Please park on the south side of the road where it is not posted, and not blocking driveways nor access roads. Cowles Park actually extends to this point as part of the Orange Trail. Also please respect the property owner’s wishes and stay off the main part of their lawn as you follow the fence line into Cowles. This trail will bring you past the end of Toboggan Run.

It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down...
.
Go get some! Time for a ride! Dawn patrol was spectacular! Trails are a bit dusty and loose. Could certainly use some rain, but the temps were perfect!
.
Stay tuned for an email to those who subscribed...on some projects including trail work. We will also be seeking some donations to help complete those projects. More to come! Ps...a little foreshadowing with this pic.

Trail braid is back! With our blockage neatly stacked. I see why the braid was done. But why not take the original approach, get on the rock, make the turn, then do the drop? Like it's original intention? Get up on the rock, then decide...easy roll off left or harder drop to the right.
.
Cowles is riding nice! There is a Giant demo tomorrow at COWLES PARK from 10 until 3, hosted by Ridgeline Bikes.

Since I can't ride VT right now, might as well do some bike maintenance and drink VT beer while thinking of everyone who is riding VT this weekend! Good luck at the VT50! And everyone else I know heading to KT, Stowe, etc, enjoy! I'll get some here this weekend!

It's back and better than ever! Thanks to Eric H. for letting us know! We have a great community of riders and people who want to help out! These kinds of things will not dissuade us! The approach ramp has been reconstructed after just being destroyed and the trail braid has been blocked off as well!

BREAKING NEWS! Apparently there is now a disgruntled person (presumably a rider) who is now working on his own. This is hurting the efforts of NEMBA, the town, and the work we have done to make Cowles park a SAFE and multi-user friendly location. If anyone knows them, please ask them to stop this reckless behavior immediately. The authorities have been notified. Remember, no trail work is permitted in Cowles without permission of the town and NEMBA. This destruction of sanctioned trails was not seen last night, and was discovered this morning. The original trail was blocked and the ramp up the rock destroyed.

Trails are a touch damp this morning, but not soaking wet, and not soft, still very firm, and surprisingly...tacky. No real mud, but some slime will get on your bike. Very few puddles. But...BEWARE...the roots and rocks are slippery as all get up! Hold on tight going over them! Weather appears to be continued possible showers through out the day (weekend too) and humid. So please use common sense when deciding when and where to ride, especially immediately following rainfall.
