Join us as we dust off the cobwebs on our bikes, fill up the tires, lube our chains, and get our bikes ready for the first easy warm-up ride of the season on the Ahuwillticook Rail Trail with queer folks from all over the region. We will have a couple bike mechanics standing by to help you with easy repairs & lubrication before the ride. This is an easy ride on a paved trail that runs through wetlands, forest, and by two spectacular lakes and best of all we will not be bothered with car traffic on the rail trail, except for a couple of well-marked intersections where the trail crosses Route 7. We will stop for lunch at Whitney's Farm Store in Cheshire, which has great sandwiches, including gluten free bread, and eat our lunch next to a beautiful pond.

TUNE UP OR RENT A BIKE: If your bike is in bad shape, we highly recommend you get it tuned up well before the Pride Ride by calling


  • whatever equipment your bike may need to ride safely, & you could buy some of these items at Berkshier Outfitters (e.g., air pump, spare bike tube, bike tube changing tool, lube for your chain, windex or other cleaner for your bike, rag, basic bike tools
  • rain-gear (rain coat & rain pants, ideally high visibility color with reflective strips)
  • appropriate footwear,
  • high visibility vest, jacket and helmet (we strongly recommend you wear a helmet)
  • flashing bike lights on the front & back of your bike (red in the back & white in front)
  • snacks & water,
  • waterproof gloves & balaklava, depending on the weather forecast
  • Glasses, Sunglasses, or Goggles to protect your eyes from dust, debris, & sunlight

WEATHER & & COMMUNICATION: Please check the weather the morning before the ride so you can make sure you have the right clothing & equipment if conditions change, which they often do in June in the Berkshires. We will only cancel the ride if there is more than 60% chance of thunderstorms or heavy rain predicted the morning of the ride, and we will text you in the unlikely event we have to cancel or reschedule because of a weather emergency. Please provide us with your cell phone number and an emergency contact when you register.

REACHING US DAY OF RIDE: If you have trouble finding us, will be late, or can't make it, please call/text Bart at 503-734-6508 or Andy at 339 221-3051
