About Us

Pathfinder LogoThe Pathfinders Motorcycle Club of Connecticut has been promoting responsible, fun, family-oriented riding in New England since 1971. We are an official AMA and NETRA motorcycle 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 Calendar page for the next meeting date.

The Pathfinders haveOld Pathfinders Logo been riding for more than 50 years. The club was 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 adult enduros through the ’80s. The club now promotes NETRA sanctioned hare scrambles, junior and adult enduros, pee wees, nervous novice and youth clinics. Some of our past events include The Dam Good Weekend Hare Scrambles, Remsen Rumble Hare Scrambles, The Mohawk and Red Fox turkey runs, RocktoberFast enduro, several youth clinics and Enduro education courses.

In 2003, The Pathfinders were honored to bring the ISDT Reunion Ride 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. In 2013 we reprised our role at the 40th anniversary!
