Always be an ambassador for our sport! Best practices include:
  • Slow down when you see other riders, hikers, or animals.
  • Pass other trail users at about their speed - be courteous and talk to them
  • Ride through the center of a mud patch or puddle, NOT around it.
  • Ride over an obstacle, NOT around it.
  • If you can't ride over an obstacle, get off and walk it - stay on the trail.
  • Do not make new routes or trails.
  • Do not build stunts.
  • Do not skid, spin out, or fishtail - uphill nor downhill.
  • Always offer to yield the right of way.
  • Be friendly - say hi to other trail users!

GBNEMBA Dark Hollow Pond Project, Middlesex Fells

Date

4/27/14 8:00am to 4:00pm

DCR has green-lighted phase 1 of DARK HOLLOW POND TRAIL. Everyone remember this - this is what catalyzed us all in 2009 to fight for equitable access to singletrack in the Fells and culminated in the release of the Fells Resource Management Plan which granted that access for mountain biking in the Fells. The RMP designated Dark Hollow Pond as to become legal for MTB and we've been working through the process with DCR since the RMP was released to get to this point. So save the date: Sunday, April 27th, 2014. 8am to 4pm. Come help finish what we all started! Stay tuned for an event page with exact details

Meet up: Kiosk at upper Sheepfold Lot

When: 8am-4pm
What to wear: Clothes and shoes suitable for working in the woods, closed-toes shoes/boots, work gloves, water.

We will be providing lunch and extra water.

Wachusett NEMBA - MRA Camp Marshall Fat Bike Race & Winter Carnival

Date

2/24/18 (All day)

MRA Multisport Information Page

The Camp Marshall Snowshoe/Fat Bike Race, presented by DION Snowshoes


 Saturday evening February 24, 2018 - now under the stars!!


(6:00pm fatbike race, 7:30pm snowshoe race)

We're excited to partner up with the Snowbirds Snowmobile club and Camp Marshall to produce this race.  Working with the Camp, the Snowbirds maintain (i.e. create, clear, and groom!) trails over the winter months.  As part of this race partnership, a new trail system will be created and dedicated to non-motorized winter recreational activities, such as cross-country skiing, snowshowing, and fatbiking.  This will be open the public beyond just race day.  A portion of the entry fees will go towards the creation and maintence of these trails.    
The 5k loop will be ran for snowshoe race.  The course is primarily double wide tracks and fireroads through the trails of the Worcester County 4H at Camp Marshall, but a few sections of flowy singletrack too.  We'll have the bumdrums fire pits going all morning too, just in case the crisp winter air puts a chill on you. There is also a warming hut at the main venue too, and great food for after the race!
 
* In the event where there is not enough snow for snowshoes or fat bikes, we'll change the format of the race to be a trail race and open up the bike race to skinnies.  We'll announce this at least 2 days before the race date. We're racing no matter what!

This event is co-sponsored by the Snowbirds Snowmobile ClubWachusett NEMBA and MRA Multisport.
Come and enjoy a Fun Frigid Family day outside. 
Games, Snowman Contest, SnowShoe and Fat Bike Demonstration area's. Stay into the evening with a camp fire and send off our Fat Biker Races and Snow Shoe Racer at Twilight.

Location: The event will be held at 92 McCormick Rd in Spencer. Read more about Wachusett NEMBA - MRA Camp Marshall Fat Bike Race & Winter Carnival
