Ware Watershed & Mountain Biking

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Members of Wachusett NEMBA will be meeting with Department of Conservation & Recreation land management for the Ware River watershed to discuss issues relating to mountain biking on this property. Mountain bikers have ridden on the many trails within the Watershed for years without issue nor impact to the drinking water supply. However, the DCR Watershed has decided to enforce a long standing ban on bicycles from all woods trails. Hikers, dog-walkers and equestrians have access to many of the trails but mountain bikers are completely excluded.

NEMBA believes that the DCR Division of Water Supply Protection should change the recreational use policies at the watershed to include mountain biking, as well as other forms of passive, sustainable recreation.

The Ware River Watershed abuts Rutland State Park, a small 200+ acre parkland that allows mountain biking. Read more about Ware Watershed & Mountain Biking

BVNEMBA Tuesday Beginner Rides

New to mountain biking? Looking to ride at a mellow, social pace with friendly people? Want to introduce a significant other or your children to the sport in a no-pressure environment? This is the ride for you! We ride easier trails, shorter loops and at a slower pace. Nobody will be left behind and although we can't guarantee that it'll all be smiles, we'll do our best to help you have a good time while providing opportunities for you to challenge yourself as well.

We try to leave the parking lot by 6pm and we'll try to finish every ride by dark. If you have a helmet or bar light, it would be a good idea to bring it, just in case.

BVNEMBA Thursday Intermediate Rides

Been to our beginner rides and ready to step it up a bit? We ride further, faster and over more technical terrain but this is still a social ride. We'll push you a bit more than our beginner rides on Tuesday but it's still not a race. Nobody will be left behind and although we can't guarantee that it'll all be smiles, we'll do our best to help you have a good time while providing opportunities for you to challenge yourself as well.

We try to leave the parking lot by 6pm and we'll try to finish every ride by dark. If you have a helmet or bar light, it would be a good idea to bring it, just in case.
