Summer Solstice Ride

Saturday, June 29, 2024
Sabine Farm, Greenwich CT

Rain Date (if needed): Sunday, June 30th

Since 1974, the GRTA’s annual Summer Solstice Ride has carried on the tradition set by Donna and Fred Nives. Originating from their home on Lake Avenue, the Summer Solstice Ride was always the first “ride out” of the season. Even as the ride has changed location it has continued to be the season opener for spring riding followed by a picnic lunch in the Greenwich Land Trust Fisher field, Mother’s Day weekend. Many of the old stonewalls and original trails are still intact and very little has changed on these precious trails that have been meticulously maintained since 1904 by our beloved GRTA trail man.

Each group of riders will begin and conclude the Summer Solstice Ride course in the Greenwich Land Trust Fisher field Saturday morning until lunchtime. All riding abilities are welcome and encouraged to attend this beautiful historic ride to help ring in the spring season. A Pizza truck will be in the Sabine Farm field off Round Hill Road.
