I'm new to the area (Longmeadow) and looking for someone to ride with. I mix it up between road and mountain. I've found a couple good mountain rides, but I'm clueless for where to ride on the road. Any help would be appreciated...

Fit to Ride and NCCC

Chris,

I JUST moved out of Longmeadow after several years. Here are the guys you need to hook up with... extremely knowledgeable staff (former racers) and a nice bunch of guys to go on group rides with. They have a Yahoo Group you can subscribe to as well.

Call/email Brian (the owner from Somers) and ask when/where they are doing their rides and for more info. Web site is...

The largest club in the area with a lot of members is NCCC:

As far as road riding, I have kids and could not ride for hours on end but doing loops around Longmeadow - the length of Route 5 and then head east towards East Longmeadow - is a decent ride. In 7 years road riding in Longmeadow, I never once had any hassles with drivers and they give you more respect and room that in most other towns. Grab a map - you can ride the main routes from Longmeadow into Somers, East Longmeadow, Wilbraham, etc.

Good luck,

Chris King
