The One, the Only, the WICKED RIDE is back for 2020!

North Shore NEMBA has made this event into one of New England’s "must-do" mountain biking events, and it's a great final gathering of mountain bikers before the snow begins to fly. This year we’ll showcase the best trails “Harold Parka” has to offer, not so coincidentally built by North Shure NEMBA's trail building gurus.


Live Music!     Great Food!      Awesome Raffle!     “Best-In-Show” Prizes
