Welcome to The Pathfinders

The Pathfinders Motorcycle Club of Connecticut has been promoting responsible, fun, family-oriented riding in New England since 1971.  We are an official NETRA club and actively participate in the competitive side of riding by sanctioning hare scrambles, turkey runs, and enduros.  Many of our members compete in these events as well.

An important part of responsible riding is giving back to the community. You will find many of us riding, maintaining and patrolling the trails at the Thomaston Dam.  Through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, the Pathfinders have been promoting safe and legal riding at the Thomaston Dam since 1979.  Another example of giving back is the annual Pathfinders Scholarship Fund which provides financial assistance to two deserving college students.

Interested in joining? Then come on down to The Brookside Inn located in Oxford, CT.  Meetings are every 2nd and 4th Monday at 7:15PM.  Check the Announcements section for the next meeting date. Download our Membership Information document.

Pathfinders donate to the Rider Down Foundation
November 13, 2013


RDF would like to say THANK YOU to the Pathfinders MC Club of Connecticut and their ISDT Reunion Ride for the generous donation and support!

says Bruce Vermeulen, president of The Rider Down Foundation (RDF). RDF is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping responsible off-road motorcyclists and ATV racers who have been injured while riding. Proceeds are used to provide assistance to the riders and their families when faced with medical expenses and related issues.

Old Pathfinder Logo The Pathfindershave been around for more than 40 years; having been formed by Don Allen, Doug Button, and others circa 1971 in southwest Connecticut.  Always focusing on trail riding and family activities, it was not unusual for 100+ members to travel throughout New England to camp and ride the NETRA trail system during the Summer and Fall months.

The club began promoting NETRA sanctioned activities in the late '70s starting with junior enduros then progressing to hare scrambles and senior enduros through the '80s. The club now promotes NETRA sanctioned hare scrambles (The Dam Good), turkey runs (the Mohawk and the Red Fox), and enduros (Rocktoberfast). 

In 2003, The Pathfinders were honored to bring the ISDT Reunion Ride back to the Berkshires for the 30th Anniversary of the 48th ISDT. The 48th ISDT was the first ISDT event to be held in the United States.
