Event Date

Come join NEMBA for a special Kids Ride at Great Brook Farm on Sunday  July 15. After a fun filled ride NEMBA would like to treat everyone who participated to join us for a ice cream at the Great Brook Farm Ice Cream Parlor. Kids Rides are a great way for kids and teens to build strong bodies, build confidence, have tons of fun and enjoy being outside! The Kids Rides are designed for children ages 6-15. Based on the skill levels of the participants, we typically break into two groups: one for kids who have more experience with riding, and a second group for beginners. All we ask is no training wheels. No registration is required. This is a free event. If you have any questions about the Kids Rides please contact Andrea Jones.

Meet at 10:15am, ride begins at 10:30am.

Fells Social Ride

Event Date

Repeats every week every Wednesday until Wed Sep 26 2018 .
4/18/18 6:00pm to 8:00pm

This is GBNEMBA's signature ride 

Come and join us for a classic ride just miles north of Boston in Middlesex Fells 

This is a most levels ride...and very social! Come join us at the Fells on Wednesday nights - meet some new people to ride with!

There will be at a minimum an advanced and a mellower group going out each week. If we have enough volunteer ride leaders, there may be an intermediate or other groups. Advanced and intermediate riders should know their own abilities. Experienced novice riders are welcome on the mellower ride.

t's a great way to get out and meet fellow riders, learn about a great riding area and a great organization, and get in a good workout during the middle of the week.
 

Remember to 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!

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
