Bruce & Tom's

Location: Gloucester, MA

B&T's Media Page

Bruce & Tom's is considered one of the most talked about mountain biking spots in the Boston Area.  Much of this property is managed by Essex County Greenbelt better know as Tompson Street Reservation.  However much of the trail network floats from public into private land which contains technical singletrack and stunts.  This private section of land is better know as B&T's by the local mountain bike community. 

This private land is literally the backyard of local mountain biker "Bruce The Firefighter" and if you want to play, you need to obtain permission from Bruce or you are trespassing.  Over the past few years many mountain bikes have ignored getting permission due to ignorance or just not knowing this section of land was private.  

We at Dieselbikes are continually assembling information related to Bruce & Tom's geared towards mountain bikers to keep everyone informed about what's happening with the woods!  We work closely with Bruce and are combining our efforts to make this location a premier destination for the mountain bikers.
