    And rightfully so!! There has been a lot of people in the past that have screwed the pooch on this and fixing it has been a three year process. We have a lot of connections throughout the country which helps but CT is still CT and we all know what that means.

    I agree!

    Surprisingly, it'll be even harder to pull it off on private land vs state land. Until the state adopts a private land use liability waiver like Maine and New Hampshire have, the landowner is never 100% protected.

    The biggest liability issue remains state and municipal lands.

    This Sunday is the final meeting with the land owners in Colebrook and at that time we will get the nod either way. Wish me luck. Hopefully I have good news on Monday.

    GOOD LUCK. Hope you are able to make this work, as I am certain lots of people are.
    Get comfortable being uncomfortable.

    I gave a presentation yesterday to land owner board of directors (the land is owned by a management team) to not only tell the board what COREC is but to pitch the idea of what this land could bring to COREC, riders like you and to them as well. This is a landmark opportunity to say the least. Having the option to ride somewhere other than Thomaston is a big deal especially with the option of camping, fishing, kayaking, swimming, cooking out, bonfires and general awesome stuff.

    Yesterday evening, it was unanimously voted that COREC will have access to the land. This will be the first and only multi use area in Connecticut so it won't be just bikes. We still have tons of details to work out with the land owners but... WE ARE IN!!!!

    To anyone who wants to help out in the near future.. NETRA last ran a hare scramble on the property in 2011 and some of the berms can still be found so some bad ass single track can and will be made. Remember... this will be a great place for experienced and novice riders alike, in fact, we would love to hold a summer youth riding program there next summer with the help of NETRA. I hope this news makes your Monday grind a little better.

    We can damn near do anything we want to do. They would rather use the property for things like that. As soon as the riding program was mentioned, it was a done deal. Even racing is not out of the picture.
