The Berkshire Triple - September 15, 2013 - Trail Ride, Dual Sport & Adventure Ride

The Berkshire Triple
Trail Ride, Dual Sport and Adventure Ride

Come ride the Berkshire’s! Three route sheets to choose from:

Trail Ride: For enduro bikes and trail worthy dual sports. Knobby tires are a must. This route will be mostly on single track trails and rugged woods roads. Bypasses may be used for the hardest sections.

Dual Sport: Route will consist of more dirt roads and rough woods roads. Dual Sport riders will have the choice to jump into the Trail Ride route sheet at times as a hero section. Knobby tires still recommended.

Adventure Ride: A classic big bike friendly tour of scenic paved and dirt roads in SW New England. A route sheet holder highly recommended as this ride will not be arrowed. The route is easy to follow using just a route sheet.

Date: September 15, 2013. Start time 9am. Mandatory riders meeting 8:30am. Last rider out 9:30am.

Start Location:
1043 Burt Hill Road, Tolland, MA 01034. (Follow the arrows from Route 57, Tolland MA)

Sign-up: Sunday 7-9am.
Pre-Entry: $35 | Post Entry: $40 | http://mudslinger.org/PDFs/2013berks...%20Form%20.pdf
Mail Pre-Entry to: Berkshire Trail Riders, PO Box 601, Winsted CT 06098

Requirements: NETRA or AMA membership suggested but not required. Route-sheet holder suggested. Motorcycle drivers license, valid license plate mounted on fender, vehicle registration, proof of insurance, working headlight and taillight. Spark arrestor/muffler 96DB MAX! We will be running a strict sound test on all bikes.

Sadly I'll be in Colorado and Moab for this. Last year I did the dual sport on the SE. Very fun. Highly recommended you go and see what BTR can put together. No matter which route you choose you'll have a blast.

Can't Wait!

I did the Dual sport loop with hero sections last year.
Was the ride of the year for me!
If anyone is thinking about doing this ride, STOP thinking and DO IT!

HoodZ,

Did you do this ride on your DRZ? Will it be OK for bigger 650 bikes? What was the difficulty rating? Any fotos or videos of the dual sport ride??
