Kona Bicycles MTB Adventure Ride at the Middlesex Fells

Date

5/7/17 9:00am to 4:00pm

Come Ride and Support the Middlesex Fells Reservation!

Join Greater Boston NEMBA in the 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. The Fells Kickoff is part of the Kona Bicycles MTB Adventure Series — events designed to raise funds for  parks and charities, which is why there is an admission fee to the MBAS events. We are delighted to partner with MTB Adventure Series to advance conservation and sustainability efforts in the Fells. Group rides will be leaving throughout the day or you can ride with your friends on a fully arrowed course.

Industry Expo
Back Bay Bicycles, Cannondale Sports Group, Cycle Loft, JRA Cycles and Wheelworks will be in attendance.

CycleLoft will once be firing up their grills and providing some tasty lunch!

NS NEMBA Trail Work at Beverly Commons

Date

4/26/14 8:30am to 4/27/14 8:30am

North Shore NEMBA Trail Work Weekend
Saturday April 26 8:30 AM – 3 PM
Sunday April 27 8:30 AM – Noon
Beverly Commons, Greenwood Ave. Beverly MA

Location: Beverly Commons (aka Greenwood) Beverly MA. Meet at Beverly Farms end of Greenwood Ave. at Stone Ridge. Parking at the trailhead is tight. If you find no parking spots, there is plenty of on-street parking on Greenwood closer to Hart St. Please respect the neighbors, driveways, mailboxes, etc.

Map: http://tinyurl.com/mdnb43g

Greenwood has great technical riding and a remote feel for a place so surrounded by civilization. Some of the trails follow lowland routes. Prior projects have addressed some of those and bridged other problem areas.

Project: Build New Trail. This is a sizeable trail addition that will create a dry loop on the east side of the Commons where an existing trail makes an extended tour through a swamp. The terrain is rocky and wild, the route challenging both to build and to ride after completion. There is a considerable amount of tread work, so be prepared to move some stone and do some digging.

Due to the amount of work involved, we have scheduled 2 days to complete the project. It’s best to arrive for an 8:30 AM start on either or both days, but no problem coming later, particularly on Saturday, if that’s what your schedule allows. The walk in, about 15 minutes, will be marked. Given the duration of the project, we are hoping that everyone can participate at some time over the weekend.

Bring work gloves, sturdy footwear, eye protection, and pack in water/snacks. Tools will be supplied but feel free to bring your favorite rock bar, pick mattock, stone hammer, etc.

Lunch will be provided. A ride may take place in the afternoon, weather and ground conditions permitting.

Project will go on in light/moderate rain, but heavy rain may result in rescheduling.

Merrimack Valley Trail Care - Russell Mill, Chelmsford,MA

Date

5/12/18 8:30am to 12:30pm

We'll be putting in a boardwalk next to the long log skinny on Orange. Its a simple 2-plank boardwalk similar to many other boardwalks in RM. We'll do other work on mucky spots depending on time available.

Parking TBD

Sturdy shoes/boots and long pants suggested. I assume the work area will still be wet on the 12th. Lunch will be provided afterwards. Read more about Merrimack Valley Trail Care - Russell Mill, Chelmsford,MA
