Bluff Point State Park

Date: April 29, 2013
Report Type: TA Report:
Trail Name: Bluff Point State Park
Town: Groton
Trail Conditions: AWESOME

Observations/Information: One of the guys from CLIMB (Concerned Long Island Mt Bikers) came over to play in some CT rocks. Really wanted to take him to Hartman Park but travel time and such it was just better to go to Bluff Point. That and I hadn't been there in SOME time. 


Was really surprised at the room on the trails, someone has had to have gone around and trimmed it back as it was clearer/wider than I'd seen it in the past,.. well done who ever you are!

did a lot of short hops and let him play at all the rollers and skinny's and such. Did have one major mechanical when he did the skinny out in the middle that is a broken tree up and over a large rock. Came off and hit the rear derailleur of a bit of the stump end. Funny thing is it busted the upper jockey wheel not the lower one. Did a quick run to Mystic cycles who had a jockey wheel in stock. slapped it on and we were off again. did the tour out to the bluff, hit the preserve section and then out. I think he had fun!!
