Ride Leaders Notes:
The NER Meshomasic (“Mesh” for short) 117k is a wonderful mixed terrain loop ride that starts and ends at Hartford’s Hanging Hills Brewery and travels to the small town of Willimantic, CT along a mix of paved urban and suburban roads, gorgeous dirt state forest roads, and the crushed gravel surfaces of the Airline and Hop River State Park rail trails. This route uses some of the same roads and trails as the Detour de Connecticut, but is a significantly shorter and easier ride.
