The Whole Enchilada
Bring your bike for the fourth annual Charlemont Trail System (CTS) Whole Enchilada bike ride on September 20th! When the Whole Enchilada started the first year the CTS was made, the idea was to bike all the trails - then only 15 miles. Now the CTS has closer to 45 miles of trails, but the goal is still to ride them all in one day! Don't worry though - there's shorter rides if you don't want to do all of the trails. Click here for more information. Online registration closes on September 19th at 5:00pm.
