Any other old BMXers in the Hartford CT area?

Hi all. I'm a 43 year old getting back into BMX after almost 30 years. Looking to start up a group of like minded riders in the area. I know you're out there somewhere. Let's get out of our cubicles and on to our bikes!

...used to live in Vernon...but that was 43 years ago. I sometime wonder how it would have been growing up in that area in the 80ies riding BMX. Good luck...

Re: Any other old BMXers in the Hartford CT area?

So how come U.S. MEMBERS are allowed to post looking for riding buddies but the rest of us are remanded to a low traffic area such as "bmx from other countries", and when I posted a thread asking about this..my thread was erased?

Any of you that believe theres nothing wrong with having a SPECIFIC SECTION TO FIND RIDING BUDDIES PLEASE VOICE THIS.

I didnt do anything wrong and Im constantly silenced fir looking for people to ride with.
If I had riding friends, I wouldnt be here bitching.
Now that would make everyone happy wouldnt it?


Heres my profound, life changing statement.
Lifes a bitch..PASS ME A BEER.

They're reacting and that's wonderful. It's better than them sitting there doing nothing. I say make them react - do whatever's in your power to move the audience, and if that's where it is, and there where it is with America, sex and violence, then I say project it.

Thanks for posting this. It's very helpful. By the way in our country we call that sarcasm.

CT here too.

There is a meet up/swap in RI on Oct 13th I believe. It is in the event section but is in the thread from last year.

I think there is an annual swap/ride in Wethersfield every spring too but I don't know how to find info on it, just heard about it. 

There is also the annual show/swap in Hatfield MA. That was last month.

Welcome to the museum btw.

@LMW3 I think you are referring to the Wethersfield High School Bicycle Club annual swap meet. That was back in June. I wasn't able to make that one. There was also the Sugar Cayne Bike show in Trumbull, CT last week but that's an hour drive for me. Maybe I'll hit that one next year.

Dang. that's also an hour away. Too far for me..... I have an idea for a new tourism slogan for Hartford, CT: "Hartford, only an hour away from anything good".

@LMW3 the show in Trumbull CT was put together by Al Cayne. If you keep an eye in his social media and/or youtube channel you can get all the info there.

Re: Any other old BMXers in the Hartford CT area?

Three of us from western mass were there, weather sucked but a good time for all. Got a sweet set of bullseyes for my trickstar. The pics are posted on the facebook link. We are proposing a spring show in western mass in 19. More details to follow. If there is any interest pm me so we can move forward. Thanks

Unfortunately Bmx swap New England Facebook page requires a login. I don't have a facebook and I never will. Just a personal choice, be nice.
