Place to try a buggy on the east coast


Hi, I am doing a cycle trip out east (NY,VT,ME,RI,MA and CT) the end of Sept and first week of Oct. I would like to try out a buggy as it seems nobody here in WI offers it. If any of you have any ideas of who to contact I would appreciate it! Thanks!

If there is any way that you can expand your travels to include the NJ Coast (https://goo.gl/maps/pt65eD7Pn2p) and wiggles the dates to include the second week of October (Contact Rich Miller by clicking here), you would be aligning your stars with the Wildwood Buggy Bash.



If you can't, but your travels still land you near Nahant, MA (https://goo.gl/maps/W7o32ByAySQ2), you might be able to set up a meet with the Nahant Crew. Send an email buggydanny. His email is in his profile, CLICK HERE.

ATB,
Sam

If you can't make Wildwood, would hooking up the with Nahant crew in MA, per the second part of my original post, be doable?

Yes some, and by then, a whole lot more. Have a new Beamer purchased here to learn after I can master my HQ Rush trainer.
New Glarus Spotted Cows, Fat Squirrels, Totally Nakeds and a couple others work? Good we haul a trailer behind our motorcycle. ;)

I live in Green Bay, WI and have a buggy:D This state is terrible for buggy locations or I think more of us would be doing it. Water is pretty much where it's at in this state. There is a sizable community of kiters in the Madison area if that helps any. Don't think any of them buggy either but it wouldn't hurt to ask. Your always free to give my buggy a spin if you ever find your way to the Green Bay area.

Robert Cook is the guy you want to contact in Madison. His website is:

Stiff breezes!

Rob.
