Date

Repeats every week until Sun May 08 2016 .
4/30/16 9:00am to 12:00pm

Southern New Hampshire NEMBA will hold a work day on Saturday April 30th and Sunday May 8th.

Plan on meeting at the hiker/biker lot off of Podunk Road at 8:45. We will move to the work site at 9 AM. We will work until noon or 1 PM.

Bring water, gloves and lunch if you want to join a ride afterwards (no need for tools, we will have the trailer).

On 4/30 we will be working around the old 4-H camp clearing some of the old trails.

((Bear Brook is hosting the annual NEMBA trail building school at the 4-H camp this year May 21-22. If you are interested in attending the trail school, contact Matt Caron (our trusty president) or Philip Keyes, NEMBA executive director.))

On 5/8 we will be hauling materials to the work sites for the trail school. We will finally be able to work on the bridge project that was part of last years RTP grant.

If time permits on either day, we will work on the third and final re-route on Hedgehog Ledge. Hope to see you there!

Any questions call Kathy 603-724-7187.

BK NEMBA's unReal MTB Day

Date

3/26/16 7:30pm to 8:30pm


It is about to get unReal. Saturday (March 26th) is fast approaching and we've got a full day of MTB activities lined up in Keene, NH.

We'll kick the afternoon off at 2:30 with Drummer Hill group ride(s). The trails are dry, and the weather looks good - 50° and sunny. We should have enough leaders to keep the group sizes reasonable and accomodate a variety of ride lengths/difficulties. Meet at the Cheshire Medical Center (hospital) parking lot ready to roll. Please park on the Emergency Room side, out by the main road. The address is 580 Court Street Keene, NH 03431 or just follow the blue “H” signs... We will ride to the Drummer Rd/Green Acres trail head from there.
We are also working on getting things in place for a kids ride. Saturday Kids Ride details... Meet at Stonewall Farm at 3PM. We have plenty of people to help guide everyone around the farm. It sounds like we may have enough to split things into 2 groups of kids if need be.

After the ride we'll all converge at Margaritas Mexican Restaurant. The address is 77 Main St, right in downtown Keene, and just a couple doors up from The Colonial Theater. There is plenty of parking out behind the restaurant, and the bar is quite large so we'll have no problem accommodating a big group. We'll shoot for being at the restaurant around 5PM for drinks, dinner, or socializing. Just go to the bar side. If you want a table, see the hostess. We'll just start at the bar and go from there.

The doors at The Colonial Theater open at around 7PM for the 7:30 show. Again, just down the street. Try to get there a little early to get a free ticket for some awesome giveaways from Strava, Highland Mountain Bike Park, VMBA, West Hill Shop, Ted's Shoe and Sport, Likin' Bikin', Norm's Bike and Ski, and more – over $4,000 in prizes will be given away, to include a new Surly bike! There will also be a table set-up in the lobby with BK-NEMBA selling maps of Drummer Hill ($5, cash money).

After the show we'll head over to Elm City Brewery for some more food, drink, and socialization.

Stonewall Farm Trailcare

Date

11/1/15 8:30am to 11:00am

We'll be hanging some additional trail markers, putting some nice cedar arrows up at intersections, and clearing the trails of leaves. If we get a good turn out there is a little reroute I've been eyeing, but the main goal is to square the trails away for fall/winter.

Also, following the workday, Advanced Cyclist will be having a demo day at 11 right there at the farm. Get a full day of bikes in.

Remember, Daylight Savings Time ends that morning...

We'll meet at stonewall Farm - HERE
