MTB Adventure Ride @ Bear Brook State Park

Date

9/12/21 9:00am to 3:00pm

The Bear Brook Boogie is back!!! With a new date for 2021 and a new starting location.

Come join the Southern New Hampshire chapter of NEMBA for all the fun, while helping to save/maintain the trails in Bear Brook State Park! All the money raised by the Boogie goes directly to the park to rebuild and maintain the trails.

New Date for 2021 - Sunday September 12, 2021 - Due to a logging operation that will be starting in the park mid September and continuing until the winter, we have decided to hold the Bear Brook Boogie while you can still ride “the Bears”. Big Bear and Little Bear will be amongst the trails closed during the logging operation, so come ride them with us one last time before they are temporarily closed for the logging operation.

New Starting Location for 2021 - Hayes Field (Podunk Rd) - Starting the event from Hayes Field is very exciting for us as it will allow us to create better loops and also provide an all around better experience for all rider levels allowing riders to “get to the good stuff” without having to ride a long way to get there.

Marked Courses: Riders can follow marked courses on their own at any time or take part in a led ride. There will be a one-mile kids/family loop, a demo loop (mileage yet to be determined), a 6-mile beginner loop, a 10-13 mile intermediate loop, and a 20-25 mile advanced loop. Ride fast or just cruise, the trails are arrowed so everyone knows where to go and you don’t have to worry about getting lost!

Led rides: We'll have a beginner ride of about 6 miles, an intermediate of about 12 miles, and an advanced of about 25 miles. All rides leave between 10:00am and 10:30am ET. Full schedule to be posted as we nail down the details and get closer to the event.

-There won't be any led family rides. Choose to ride the well arrowed kids/family loop as many times as you want at your own pace.
