CANCELED - GBNEMBA Kids Ride Series

Event Date

10/3/15 9:00am to 2:00pm
Canceled - Due to the large amount of rain falling this week we are not able to hold the Kids Ride. See you all at Opening Day at the Fells next year!
Come join us as we celebrate International Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day at the Middlesex Fells! There will be guided rides starting at 9:30am, 10:30am, 11:30am. Lunch at noon and a raffle for some sweet bike swag after!
 
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.  If you have any questions about the Kids’ Rides please contact Andrea Jones.

These rides allow children to have fun while enjoying the outdoors and getting some fitness.  In addition to learning some biking skills, we teach respect for the parks, trails, and other trail users.  The ride will be well staffed and every safety precaution will be observed (we typically have one of the MTB Patrol along if first aid is needed).  Parents are welcome on the ride but not required.  Riders must have a serviceable bike, properly fitted helmet, and water for the ride.  All riders must wear closed-toed shoes - no flip flops or sandals.  Snacks will be provided!
