NW CT NEMBA October Kids/Family MTB Ride

Event Date

10/18/15 10:00am
For our October ride we'll be starting from Nassahegon Soccer Fields 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.

This will be our first official trail day in the Harwinton Sports Complex. The project of the day is to start on a new beginner mountain bike loop at the complex, which will be the first step towards a more substantial network in the area. Wear sturdy shoes and bring bug spray, water, and whatever hand tool you have available. We'll be using tools like rakes, pruners, loppers, hand saws, etc.. We will be meeting at the cul de sac in the southern end of the sports complex, which is off of Bentley Drive, past the town hall.
