Bikers make their way down Park Street for the annual Fall Run benefit for Shriners Children's Hospital. See more photos here.

ADAMS, Mass. — The rumble of engines echoed through Adams on Sunday morning as more than 1,000 motorcycles queued up at Bowe Field for the 60-mile Fall Run motorcycle ride.

Mike Roberts, owner of Custom City Cycle Shop and co-founder of the annual fundraiser, said although the 35 years marks a milestone for the run, it almost marked the end of Bike Night.

"The biggest issue we had this year was there was no Events Committee in Adams, they disbanded recently," he said. "They helped organize Bike Night and that was a big hit to

Q&A: Pownal Woman Conquers Appalachian Trail After Detour
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff

Hannah Cochran's 'weird selfie' atop of a sleety Mount Katahdin. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Hannah Cochran is a hiker through and through, but she is not a "thru-hiker," not technically, at least not in her opinion.   Others would differ with the Pownal, Vt., resident and Mount Greylock Regional School graduate.   Cochran launched an attempt to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail in 2014. But before she could complete the 2,190-mile trek from Georgia to Maine, she was sidetracked by the news that her father in Hancock was diagnosed and being treated for cancer.   Understandably, she decided to forego her dream and be with her family. But this summer,

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:36PM / Saturday, September 24, 2016

DALTON, Mass. — The 10th annual Buddy Walk of the Berkshires was bigger than ever. And thanks to a high school sports scheduling quirk, its reach was a little broader than ever. 

The Saturday morning walk, organized by and for the support of Berkshire County families living with Down syndrome, drew about 1,000 participants who gathered at Craneville Elementary School for the annual walk up and down Main Street. 

That group included the girls soccer team from Westfield High, which had a game scheduled for 1 p.m. against Dalton's Wahconah Regional. Problem was, many of the girls on the Wahconah team are long-time Buddy Walkers, going back to their days as Craneville
