Summary

Please join us for this 20-mile roundtrip ride on the original railbed of the Airline Railroad (New Haven, Middletown and Willimantic RR), 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 TBD); then return.  Hopefully the fall foliage will be starting to turn.  Please bring a helmet, clothing layers (per the forecast), water and snacks.  This railtrail has a hard-packed surface but is NOT paved; however, most road bikes should be fine for this ride.

Directions To Trailhead Parking Lot

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 spotty cell & GPS service in the area so, just in case, you may want to print out a map to find the parking lot.
