Thumbs up

Hi all,

One of my friends told me about the Thomaston dam for riding dirt bikes. But he said it might be closing down to riding for the winter. Does anyone know if/when this happens. Also what other info can you give me for riding there, do you have to pay? What trails are good for beginner/medium skill riders versus advanced?

Thanks
Heather

Thomaston is an awesome place to ride dirt. We should get a group out there in the spring. Good fun. They also have a day for volunteers to prep trails. Nice day of hard work for a worthy cause.

I looked on the site, how do you go about "registering" your DB for trail use in CT? I'm totally interested in going as a group, and would probably bring Jakee seeing that on x-mas he'll be riding a DRZ110. I just have to get my RM and his bike registered to do so. Is this a DMV thing or something else??

CT Dmv. $20 for 2 years reg. I have been going there for 3 years, without reg, but if they stop you, you get chucked. Need to do it for '08. There is something for everyone there terrain wise, and best of all, it's legal.

Dam's closed for the year. I'd be down for a ride when they reopen. Technical riding though. There are quite a few rock gardens and some tight singletrack.
