We usually go down the first week of May every year and it's 65-75 degrees in the day and 40's at night which is good for hanging out around a campfire. I also heard it could get pretty humid in July/August time frame and that means bugs. We're going down to Little Coal River March 30-April 1 for a weekend get away, they say it's in the high 50-mid 60's that time of year so it should be pretty comfortable riding but the nights get chilly.

CBG - The sticky at the top of the page is for the 4th annual H-McCoy Thumpertalk ride. Can't predict the weather, but it's bound to be a good time if you can make it.

Been there in August, November, and March. It's always fun. Wet in November though... don't remember any out of the ordinary bugs on any of the trips.

I'm thinking mid to late July. It'll be hot but dry. Bugs don't scare me!

I think I'm hillbilly enough and may even head down for the TT ride. I just need to find some people to head down with.

Just gotta ante up my two cents worth.

Anytime it's warm enough to ride is a good time... As long as your moving the bugs won't bother you and smoke from a campfire keeps the bugs away also.

As for being dry? LOL. The mud holes around here never dry up. At least you can go around them when it hasn't rained in three months.

      I'm currently active military and have 4 years to decide on what to do when I get out. I have post 9/11 gi bill so I can go to college or technical school for free,  and I love the northeast and saw there's a good amount of mx tracks up there, good roads for motorcycles,  and excellent mountain biking. 
      I'm here for any input on good jobs up there that some of you have, I'm currently looking at real estate but they often work weekends.  So if you have a job that you don't hate going to everyday please let me know what you do and if you want to say the good and bad parts of it.
       
      thanks in advance

      So I'm starting to get a bit sick of riding the same old stretches of quad/sxs trails along the mass/NY border, and am looking to stretch my dualsport's legs a bit more in New England. 
      I know there's plenty of legal riding in the Western Mass state forests as well as class four roads in VT, I'm hoping there are some well traveled riders who can give me some recommendations for technical bike oriented trails in the area, or point me to riding groups who seek out such things.

      MCI is pleased to announce we have been working our butts off to create what we feel is the best Stump Jumper in quite some time! We first took the opportunity to (again) hold a Fall Sand Run. What that means to you is a more pleasant enduro experience. Pretty colors, no bugs, and virtually zero over-heating of the bikes/you. The fall is the best time of the year to ride, so come ‘on out and pin that thing!

      First on the agenda, we took a long hard look at NOT sending you down 539 in the morning so you know what that means… you’re going to get something a little warmer, a little “slower” to start the day. Trust us, we engineered things so you can start you day by testing your time keeping skills. No ridiculous “Tricks” that waste your whole day, just a fun way to show all you know how to get the 00/00!

      After the “warmer” morning you are going to be treated to an amazing route that crisscrosses the wonderful forest known as Bass River. The majority of your day will be filled with fun, flowing, smooth, clean pathways that have been painstakingly maintained by the elite MCI strike force. All you old MX guys, does the words “MX special tests” mean anything to you??? Ah yes, I can hear the rev-limiters popping now… If you come out of Bass River at the end of the day without a smile welded on your face, I’d recommend selling you dirt bike and taking up knitting.
