What Blackstone Valley NEMBA is all about:
The mission of Blackstone Valley NEMBA is to promote sustainable mountain biking in the suburbs west of Boston and Worcester County and to organize a variety of fun rides and events for our members. We work with land managers and perform trail maintenance to increase the quantity and quality of terrain available to bicycles.
We host a weekly Wednesday evening ride series in some of our favorite trails at Callahan State Park in Framingham, Upton State Forest, Whitehall Resevoir in Hopkinton, and "Vietnam" in Milford. We also visit some of the hidden jewels such as Hodges Village Dam, and Mt. Pisgah. Get off the beaten path and come ride with us!
Trail maintenance is a key component of our chapter activities; we work where we ride. Thanks to positive relationships with local land managers and user groups, including the MA DEM, the Trustees of Reservations, and the Bay State Trail Riders, we organize regular maintenance projects in the spring and fall months. We've cut new singletrack, built bridges, switchbacks, and waterbars, preserving the trails for years to come. Our trail maintenance events are part of the Merlin-NEMBA series; volunteers are eligible to win an awesome Titanium bike. We invite you to get down and dirty with us!
We also host special events for our members, such as the EFTA/NEMBA fun ride at Douglas State Forest, The Triple Basin Blast Epic ride, and a Volunteer Appreciation ride and lunch. If you have an idea for a ride, fun event or maintenance project, please contact us.
