WACHUSETT NEMBA & AMC WORCESTER TRAILFEST RIDE

Details are coming together for Trailsfest on June 1. A full day of outdoor fun to celebrate National Trails Day is planned! There is no charge or admission for morning rides or at Mt. Wachusett in the afternoon. This is a great venue for meeting and riding with NEMBA members, and learning about other outdoor partners in Worcester County.

Our experienced chapter members will lead a diverse mix of ride options at Leominster State Forest in the morning. Choose from a shorter, easier route to a longer, more challenging route. All rides will be no-drop fun rides. Riders don’t have to be NEMBA members.

The rides will be followed by afternoon activities at Mt. Wachusett (499 Mountain Road, Princeton) and include live music, food and brew.

This event is organized in partnership with Appalachian Mountain Club’s Worcester Chapter.

Fun for the entire family--kids activities at the mountain include face painting, story time, and more! AMC, REI and LL Bean are providing gear demos and retail opportunities. 

8 am Registration & Waiver, 8:45 Roll Out - Rides will be leaving the parking lot near the Fitchburg/Princeton town line on Route 31 (this is just south of the beach parking lot and a bit north of the Rocky Pond parking lot). Thanks to Jim W., we have a special permit to park there for the event. Several Wachusett NEMBA members have volunteered to lead rides of all levels. You do not have to be a member of NEMBA to take part. Sign our waiver (on site), or you can sign NEMBA’s once-a-year Ride Waiver ahead of time. Watch Facebook for more information. 

Mt. Wachusett (499 Mountain Road, Princeton, MA) activities 12 pm - 4 pm - Music, Food Trucks, Beer!  Wachusett NEMBA has a table under the tent, which will be located behind Base Lodge. There will be over 25 organizations with tables, booths, etc. Please let me know if you can take an hour to volunteer at the table (several have volunteered, please let me know the time you would prefer, ideally 2 persons/hour from noon to 4 pm):

Hope to see you all on June 1st!
