Tour de Quiet Corner: Virtual Fun Ride

October 9, 2020, Danielson, CT… … The Quiet Corner Chapter of the New England Mountain Bike Association (QC NEMBA) is holding its annual fundraiser as a virtual guided tour of six different riding locations in northeast CT from October 15 to November 15. After downloading the Trailforks app, anyone can follow 13 different planned routes with a smartphone. Routes range from a 6-mile novice loop at Mansfield Hollow to a 22-mile expert beat-down in Pachaug State Forest. QC NEMBA welcomes donations to help support its efforts to maintain trails (for all trail users) and advocate for recreational trail use in the Quiet Corner.  

The Tour de Quiet Corner features at least one route in each of the following riding locations: Old Furnace State Park, Goodwin State Forest, West Thompson Dam, Mansfield Hollow State Park, Pachaug State Forest and Nathan Hale State Forest. Every route on Trailforks offers parking locations, mileage and elevation, suggested riding level, places to eat and area bike shops. Participants will have a chance to make a donation to support the chapter.

QC NEMBA is also offering great raffle prizes (including wool socks, shirts, neck gaiters and gift certificates for eats & drinks from our generous sponsors—see them on Trailforks links) to anyone who makes a donation and rides all 6 parks. Please share pix & adventures on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/QuietCornerNEMBA and Instagram @QCNEMBA. The Facebook event post is https://www.facebook.com/events/2413682608940613/. To enter the raffle, send your Trailforks logs to [email protected] by November 15.
