Trail Work & Ride trail day

Date

12/12/15 9:00am to 1:00pm

If you're available, come out to help put the finishing touches on the last connecting piece of the "white trail". The plan is to work on the trail from 9 to 11. After that, we can take advantage of the nice weather expected and do a couple hour ride. Bring a rake, pruning shears, gloves and water. We'll park at Sessions Woods in the upper gravel lot as long as there's room. https://www.facebook.com/events/1532682537051629/

Old Furnace Fun Ride

Date

10/24/15 (All day)

Old Furnace has undergone some vast improvements made possible from the funds raised at our 2014 Old Furnace Fun Ride. This year we are looking to raise money to complete the bridge project and improve other sections of the park. 

This year's EFTA/NEMBA Fun Ride will have intermediate and advance loop options. 

Old Furnace State Park is one of the Quiet Corner's hidden gems. For a small park, this place can pack a punch. Challenging terrain, daunting climbs, daring rollers, cliff edge ridge lines, and more. Bring your legs!

Parking: Ross' Pond Lot (Boat Launch)  just beyond 223 Ross Rd. Danielson, CT 06239 follow the signs.

9am - 11am Registration 

*Helmets Required*

All loops will be marked for self guided rides or join a guided ride. 

$10 Members
$15 Non Members 

15 & Under ride FREE

**All proceeds raised go toward a bridge and boardwalk project within the park.**

FC NEMBA Summer's End Social & Screening of unReal

Date

8/29/15 6:30pm

Tickets: $15 in advance, $20 at the door https://www.eventbrite.com/e/teton-gravity-researchs-unreal-mountain-bik... FC Nemba presents this season's premiere mountain bike film. Come join us at Ridgefield Playhouse. Beer Provided by City Steam Brewing. Swag provided by TGR and local vendors. All proceeds go right back to your local trails. unReal celebrates breaking free from the confines of reality and venturing into a boundless world. Glacial walls transform into mountain bike trails, rain and snow aren't the only elements to fall from the sky and thousand pound mammals become riding partners. Breathtaking visuals conjure feelings of awe and pure joy; feelings that only those of us who venture outside can truly understand. This film is dedicated to you—the dreamers, the rule-breakers, the ones who never grow up, the ones who know the secret—the ones who know the way into the unReal world. Presenting sponsors include: Trek, Shimano and Sony

NW CT NEMBA July Makeup Kids/Family MTB Ride

Event Date

8/9/15 10:00am
Our July Kids/Family MTB ride was rained out, so we'll try a make-up in August. We'll be riding from Sessions Woods WMA in Burlington CT. Meet at 10am and we'll get rolling as soon as everyone is ready. Please respond if you're planning on coming so we know to wait for everyone. Participants should be able to ride a bike without training wheels, and, as always, everyone must wear a helmet. The pace will be slow, with plenty of stops for re-hydration and snacks. We'll ride 1-4 miles or so, depending on the group. The goal is to introduce children to the fun of riding bikes in the woods. No one will be left behind and we'll do our best to make sure that everyone has a good time! You do not have to be a NEMBA member to join the ride. Click here for directions: Sessions Woods WMA Please check back here, our Facebook event page, or via email (contact@nwctnemba.org) for updates on the ride location, or any changes to the time or date.
