    any fun bike stuff going on near holyoke ma.
    just moved up here
    Don't know about Holyoke, but there's a sweet paved railtrail out of Southwick, MA heading south. If you do dirt, there's another rail-trail up in the SW corner of NH- along the Ashuelot River. Hinsdale to Keene NH. Rode it this fall on my touring bike with 28mm tires and fenders- fun, but I would recommend fatter tires or a mtb or cyclocross rig. There's some trails around Northampton too. Check out the local shops- I'm sure there's some organized road/ mountain rides or other events happening before things turn white....maybe after:)

    thanks, skinny tires for now but im building up a cross ss, just waiting for some parts to get here. hopefully before the snow does.
    ps ive noticed that some feel its bad form to post w/ out having a bike posted. sorry, i will fix this as soon as my phone is introduced to my computer.
    Nice. CX has always had a following in Mass. I had a 90's Hot Tubes frameset- ended up selling it impulsively to fund another project. God that was a sweet frame! Aaah, regrets:(

    Go ride your bike up Skinner State Park.

    There are endless great routes in the pioneer valley. I miss it. A lot.
