Welcome to the Tuesday night Sleeping Giant ride blog...
Every Tuesday night, and Sundays too, a bike ride leaves the parking lot of Sleeping Giant state park in Hamden CT on the same course north thru Cheshire and back down after making it to the industrial park section of Cheshire by the Southington town line.
The Tuesday version is fast, with speeds often averaging over 24 mph. There are traddiaiontlly no spots where the ride regroups, though there are a couple of street lights were riders can catch back on after particularly hard spots.
The Sunday version during the summer months is not as well supported, but during the winter months, can draw crowds of over 30. The Sunday ride traditionally goes slower and longer.
