Trail Pace
Wednesday, 01 October 2014 00:00

The Sherborn Forest and Trail Association is bringing back the Trail Pace Event - open to Bicycle Riders and Runners.  It will be held on Sunday the 4th of October 2015. Course open for starting anytime between 12 noon to 3:30pm (5pm to complete loop).  Farm Pond Parking Lot is located on Lake St. (nearest address is across from 200 Lake Street). For directions to Farm Pond Parking area, or click here: https://goo.gl/maps/iAg4JrsAzbS2

The Trail Pace event is a marked trail covering about 8 miles of beautiful Sherborn trails. This course is intended to be completed in teams of two or three and timed, but you can go solo if you want to. The team with the time closest to the optimum (average) time wins. There is an extended option loop to add to the end for those who prefer to go for a longer ride.  We also offer a best matched team prize for those who feel like dressing up in whatever strikes their fancy. The purpose of our Trail Pace is to introduce riders to the beautiful trail systems Sherborn has to offer and to raise funds for the association. These funds are used to support the activities of the association. Some of the activities include trail maintenance and construction, education, and assistance in purchasing and maintaining open space trails.

The association tries to use public lands whenever possible, but through the generous support of private landowners, some of the route passes over private land which is only open to riders for the day and makes this event very special. The course can be started at any time between 12 noon and 3:30pm. We ask that you return the start area by 5pm for an official time.  We request that people pre-register so that we can track numbers and speed up the sign in process.

Our bicycle rides have been very popular for the fun and scenic trails.  We hope you can come join us on this event open to all abilities.  We encourage all association members and all Sherborn citizens to come out and enjoy the day with us.  The event will cost $10 for members in advance, $15 day of. For non members it is $25 in advance, $30 day of.  The non-member price will give you Individual Membership for the year, $10 more for a full Family Membership - on line you can select for a Family or Individual.

Landry's Bicycle shop will be on site at the start finish area at Farm Pond Parking area for some free help with any tune ups your bike may need. They will have a couple of parts available for repairs.  Bring the bike down for a check up before riding the trails, or after you complete the ride for the day. Last year they had a couple bikes for people to try out, including a nice Fat Bike to test.
