Disclaimer: The club and its members take no responsibility and will not be held responsible for any injuries or accidents that may occur during club events. Outdoor sports are inherently dangerous and accidents will happen. By joining the club or participating in any events posted on the GayOutdoors web page you are taking responsibility for your own safety and well-being. Anyone with an internet connection can post a trip on the GayOutdoors web site. It is your responsibility to determine if this person has the experience and competence to lead the trip. GayOutdoors does not certify or confirm the qualifications of any of its members to lead or participate in trips.
Be Prepared: Please be prepared to be self-sufficient. Have your own provisions such as first aid kit, food, water, extra clothing for unplanned weather, etc. Have your EMERGENCY CONTACT SHEET completed and in your backpack; it may save your life, and help reach someone who greatly cares!
Pace: There may be activities when the group is either slower or faster than your current ability. Please know that because this is a group activity, it's hard to accommodate everyone's pace perfectly. Our desire is not to leave anyone, however there have been times when it is in the best interest of all to split up. Please do your part by knowing your own abilities, communicating with the organizer head of time if you would like to start early and have us catch up or fine with finishing on your own.
Summary

Please join us for this 20-mile roundtrip ride on the original railbed of the Airline Railroad which was designed to provide the shortest route between NYC and Boston in the 1870s.  We'll ride from Amston (Hebron)/Rte 85 south to East Hampton where we'll have lunch (at a restuarant or outside if you bring your own); then return.  Hopefully the fall foliage will be coming into full glory.  Please bring a helmet, water and snacks.  This railtrail has a hard-packed surface but is NOT paved; however, most road bikes should be fine for this ride.

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

Please meet at the Airline State Park Trail Parking Lot on the west side of Route 85 in Amston (Hebron) CT; this appears on maps.google.com.  Please note that there's sporadic cell & GPS service in the area so, just in case, you may want to print out a map to find the parking lot.
