PV NEMBA Ride @ Wendell SF

Event Date

Repeats every week every Tuesday 30 times .
5/19/15

Wendell State Forest's 7000 acres hosts many miles of trails. Pioneer Valley NEMBA intends to explore many of them in a series of Tuesday evening rides this summer.

We'll meet at 5:00 and the rides wil start at 5:15. They'll last for 1.5 - 2 hours with some socializing afterwards.

Terrain and pace will be determined by whoever shows up. These will be, as all PV NEMBA rides are, no-drop rides.

Join us for a fun ride on trails that you may not be familiar with. If you do I expect that you'll come back again and again. Wendell's trails are that good.

For last minute updates incuding weather cancellations check the PV NEMBA Facebook page.

Location: The rides will start from Wendell's Park Headquarters building at 392 Wendell Rd in Millers Falls. Read more about PV NEMBA Ride @ Wendell SF

Ware River Watershed public info meeting

Date

1/14/15

If you've ever used or hope to use the vast trail network in the 25,000 acre Ware River Watershed in Rutland, Oakham, Barre, and Hubbardston, MA for any non-motorized recreation, the recent issues and trail closures there affect you. The purpose of this meeting is to share information and bring everyone up to speed on the Watershed regulations, boundaries, authorized/unauthorized trails, recent trail closures, enforcement, etc. We'll answer all questions, clear up any rumors, and discuss partnership as a way forward.

The date is set and the venue is secured for the January meeting that we polled people for ( http://doodle.com/5p5y4ztwq97ctesu ). We've closed the poll and are announcing the date as Wed Jan 14. We booked the large room in the downstairs of the Rutland Town Library, 280 Main St, Rutland, MA. The library is in the center of town, on Rte 122A, just to the left as you face the two churches. Enter in the lower rear library door. The meeting will start at 7pm but we've got the room starting at 6:30pm so feel free to come earlier so we can start on time. Please spread the word of this, would like to reach as many as possible. Thanks!

With that, we will begin spreading the word and your help is welcomed and needed to do this. To be sure, we are working to help solve the issues the DCR is facing in the watershed while at the same time balancing access for non-motorized trail users. We want more than anything to create a win-win arrangement and welcome you to join us on this journey.

Thanks for your help and hope to see you there Read more about Ware River Watershed public info meeting
