Come join GBNEMBA for our first in our Kids Ride Series happening during the Fells Kickoff day, which is a celebration of 29 years of advocacy to normalize access to singletrack in the Fells and help us raise money to improve trail conditions at the Fells. (http://www.nemba.org/events/kona-bicycles-mtb-adventure-ride-middlesex-f...). All kids 15 and under ride free with a registered parent or guardian. The Kids Ride starts at 10am. After the ride hang out for the festivities including lunch. The Kids Ride is a great way for kids and teens to build strong bodies, build confidence, have tons of fun and enjoy being outside! All 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. If you have any questions about the Kids Rides please contact Andrea Jones.

MV NEMBA by Grateful Tread Thursday Ride

Event Date

Repeats every week every Thursday until Thu Oct 26 2017 .
4/20/17 6:00pm
Our Thursday evening “Easy Rider” ride is aimed at maxing out the fun factor while not being overly technical.

We try to get in about 10 miles and have it last around 2 hours.
 
We ride at the Billerica Town Forest but start from the Russell Mill Parking lot at 130 Mill Rd. In Chelmsford.
 
The pace is generally more mellow than our Tuesday ride and we will finish after dark. So bring lights. Feel free to join us!
 
Please let the ride leader know that you're coming or for directions. On the rare occasion that no one RSVPs, or in case of inclement weather, the ride may be cancelled.
