NW CT NEMBA October Kids/Family MTB Ride

Event Date

10/5/14 10:00am
Our October Kids/Family MTB ride is scheduled for October 5th. For our final Kids/Family ride of the season we will switch it up a little and ride from the Nassahegon Soccer Field parking lot on Punch Brook in Burlington CT. Meet at 10am and we'll get rolling as soon as everyone is ready. Please respond if you're planning on coming so we know to wait for everyone.
Participants should be able to ride a bike without training wheels, and, as always, everyone must wear a helmet. The pace will be slow, with plenty of stops for re-hydration and snacks. We'll ride 1-3 miles or so, depending on the group.
The goal is to introduce children to the fun of riding bikes in the woods. No one will be left behind and we'll do our best to make sure that everyone has a good time!
You do not have to be a NEMBA member to join the ride.
Please check back here, our Facebook event page, or via email (contact@nwctnemba.org) for updates on the ride location, or any changes to the time or date.
