NW CT NEMBA Thursday Ride

Event Date

5/26/16 5:30pm
Let's do it all again this week. Last week we rolled 26 strong in 3 different groups. Can we top that this week? We plan on 3 groups again. This past Thursday, our leaders were pushed by their groups a bit beyond our mileage expectations for each group so let's reset our estimates to: Group A is 6-8 miles; Group 2 is 9-11 miles; and Group X is 11-13+ miles. No matter what group you feel most comfortable in this is still a no drop social ride. There will be a good mix of abilities on these rides, so don't let the "intermediate" label scare you off.

We'll be back at Sessions Woods WMA off of route 69 in Burlington this week. Let's meet at 5:30 and try to be rolling by 5:45-6:00.

If you're on the fence about going - Just do it! We have some fun loops planned again for this week!

NW CT NEMBA Kids/Family Ride

Event Date

5/29/16 10:00am
Our first Kids/Family ride of the season will be on May 29th. We'll be riding from Sessions Woods WMA 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 1-4 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.
