GBNEMBA presents the 2014 Kids ride series.
Mountain Biking is a GREAT way for kids and teens to build strong bodies, build confidence, have a ton of fun and enjoy being outside!
The Kids Rides are designed for children ages 6-10 who can ride without training wheels. These rides are a great intro to the basics of trail riding.
This year, the Kids Rides are being run by Andrea Jones.
Here is the 2014 Kids Rides Schedule:
Kids Rides (for ages 6-15)
5/3/2014 - Opening Day at the Middlesex Fells (Stoneham) (11am ride)

The 5/3/2014 ride is an open ride - no registration required. The other rides will have online registrations posted approximately 2 weeks in advance of the rides. Any questions about the Kids Rides please contact Andrea Jones
For all Kids Rides:
Skill Level: Kids - ages 6-10 and 11-15
Duration: about 1-1.5 hrs
Pace: all will be waited for.
411: These rides are meant to introduce children to the fun, excitement and fitness benefits that come from riding bikes in the woods and to teach respect for the parks, trails, and other trail users. The ride will be well staffed and every safety precaution will be observed (we typically also have one of the MTB Patrol along if first aid is needed). Parents are welcome on the ride, but not required. Riders must have a serviceable bike, properly fitting helmet, and water for the ride. All riders must wear closed-toed shoes - no flip flops or sandals. Snacks will be provided! We will try to have two groups (little wheels & big wheels) loosely split by ability at the Kids Rides.
