Greater Boston NEMBA (GB NEMBA) is where organized mountain bike advocacy in New England all started. NEMBA was born in October of 1987 when Heidi Davis and Mark Abrams attended a public hearing at the old Metropolitan District Commission (MDC) regarding mountain bike use on MDC land. During the course of that meeting, Heidi announced that she represented the New England Mountain Bike Association. It is amazing how easily things start. Since then NEMBA has grown to 24 regional chapters and nearly 5000 members. The Greater Boston Chapter is proud to be the place where it all began.
Our chapter has a mission of promoting and preserving mountain bike access to the trails in the Greater Boston area. We do this by hosting fun riding events, helping to maintain the trails, training new riders and acting as advocates for the mountain bike community with local land managers and government authorities.
We organize many group rides, ranging from ad hoc rides, to ride series for adults and children, to skills rides and clinics, to big events like the Fells Opening Day, or Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day
Skills clinics are provided for riders of almost all abilities. Events are scheduled and announced via this website and email lists or social media. Find us on Facebook here!
Lastly, all members are welcome to attend our chapter meetings - they are usually scheduled for the first Monday of each month.
