This spring has been fantastic for mountain biking in the northeast. It took a while to warm up (it was cold well into april) but once it did it was like summer came early. With beautiful warm days and dry trails, our mountain bikes were calling to us.
The Montague Bikes team had some opportunities to get out and take our full size folding bikes off road. Many people may not expect a folding bike to be trail ready, but Montague is certainly the exception to the rule with full size wheels, a Rockshox or Suntur suspension fork, and a rigid frame that doesn’t break the tubing to accomplish folding.
The Middlesex Fells is a reservation just outside Boston filled with ponds, reservoirs, and a wide variety of trails ranging from rolling doubletrack to rocky singletrack. It’s by far the closest and most accessible off road riding to the city.
The Fells has a surprising variation in elevation as well which provides some great views.
On the two highest points in the reservation are towers you can climb to get an even better vantage point.
While this is unfortunately not our trail dog, there were lots of fury friends sharing the trails with us that day. I couldn’t resist documenting this guy’s Go Pro setup. I’d love to see that footage!
Pit stop to take in the scenery. This area around the reservoir appeared to have been burned in recent years.
From light paths…
To rock gardens!
Sometimes life behind bars is really tough….
