The 7/27/15 Monday Night Beginner/Novice ride is CANCELED - 5pm update: I'm canceling the ride unfortunately - there are some thunderstorms forming up that will be right over Beaver Brook at ride start. See you next week hopefully!
Returning for the 2015 season, GBNEMBA is hosting a Monday night ride designed specifically for new and novice MTB'rs. Come learn the basic skills to ride singletrack! We will be teaching bike handling, shifting, body position, basic trail skills and basic trailside bike maintenance in a relaxed and supportive setting.
What to bring:
1. Bike with fat tires (2" or over)
2. Helmet (required)
3. Shoes suitable for riding your bike (no sandals, flip-flops or other open-toed shoes)
Instruction will be by GBNEMBA's experienced Ride Guides in a supportive, fun environment.
Ride format will *always* be no-drop, very casual pace (Note: this is not a recovery or rest ride for your experienced MTBrs - this is an instructional ride format for new riders). We'll have plenty of opportunity to practice what we learn as we go along! Please be ready to ride by 6:00pm, ride will leave the lot by 6:15pm.
