Trail of Tears Trail Care

Date

4/8/17 (All day)

Cape Cod NEMBA will be holdiing a trail care event on Saturday April 8th at the Trail of Tears. We'll meet at the 1590 Race Lane parking lot at 9:00 AM.

The plan is to devide up into groups and go for a "Clip & Ride".  So bring a folding saw or a hand lopper as well as your bike.

Prior to the last storm the trails were in pretty good conditions so hopefully we'll be doing a lot more riding than clipping.

If plans change or there's bad weather we'll post them here and on CC NEMBA's Facebook page.

CC NEMBA will provide coffee and donuts and we should be done by Noon. A ride will follow the trail care session for anyone who has the time.

Hope to see you there.  :-)

Event Date

Repeats every week every Thursday until Thu Oct 26 2017 .

It is always a no-drop ride.

The route varies every week.

The ride is always dependent on conditions. It starts at 6:00 PM and normally runs until about 8:00.

The Foxborough rides always starts at the William O. Hocking Jr. Trailhead on Foxborough conservation land at 106 Main St Foxborough, MA.

On, normally, the last Thursday of every month the ride's location will switch to another location. These may include, Wrentham, Borderland, Vietnam or someplace else.

Email me any questions you might have and for the locations of the alternate ride sites.
