PV NEMBA Wednesday Evening Batchelor Street Group Ride

Event Date

5/15/19 (All day) to 11/6/19 (All day)

Pioneer Valley NEMBA Batchelor St Wednesday Evening Technical Rides

Wednesday night intermediate+ group rides at the Batchelor Street trail system! Ride will be no drop (we will wait for you at intersections).

Participants should be comfortable riding over technical terrain for 5-10 miles.

Trails that primarily go up will be ridden at an easier pace so that we can conserve our energy to focus on trails that primarily go down.

I will organize each ride so that they consist of at least two loops ending near the parking lot, which will give any rider the opportunity to drop out early before the group goes back up for another loop.

Rides will run every Wednesday throughout the season, weather depending.

Meet at 5:30 and roll at 5:45. My name is Kenny, and if you have any questions feel free to message me on FB or TEXT 413-345-1500. Bring your bug spray!

The rides will startat 30 Batchelor St in Granby.

Why not save time by siginig NEMBA's once-a-year Ride Waiver ahead of time if you haven't already done so.

PV NEMBA Monday Facing Rock Ride

Event Date

Repeats every week every Monday until Mon Jul 01 2019 .
6/3/19 (All day)

Pioneer Valley NEMBA Monday Facing Rock Ride

During the month of June Jonathan Falcetti will be leading some Monday evening rides at Facing Rock in Ludlow.

We will roll at 5:40 sharp. 7.7mi, intermediate/chill pace, no one will be left behind. However, this is not a beginner ride; I only say that because the terrain can be technically challenging and there is a fair amount of sustained climbing in the 1st half of the loop (leading to beautiful vista).

The trailhead is at the end of Bridle Rd in Ludlow, its a dead end.
There is large brown sign at the end of the road indicating the trailhead, you cannot miss it. Very easy to find using the address 60 Bridle Rd, Ludlow, MA. Parking is on either side of the street at the end... please be respectful and do not park on any of the neighboring resident's property.

If the group would like, we can always add to the route. Facing Rock is a beautiful lesser known trail system. It is generally dried out before anywhere else, but keep an eye on the event page for cancellations (if the trails are too soft we do not want to cause damage with a large group).

Why not save time by siginig NEMBA's once-a-year Ride Waiver ahead of time if you haven't already done so.

Wachusett NEMBA Trail Day & Ride @ Bearsden Forest Conservation Area

Parking at the big lot at the top of Bearsden Rd in Athol:

Bring some basic hand tools like metal rakes and clippers, gloves, and water.

Kevin will have a chainsaw with all safety gear, blower and power pole saw.

Bug spray might be a good idea too.

Bearsden has 10 miles of trails and we'll be removing some deadfalls and doing some trail definition.

After the trail work, which shouldn't take too long, we'll be going for a two hour ride around the conservation area.

You do not have to be a member of NEMBA to take part. You just have to want to make Bearsden's trails better.

This will be a Wachusett NEMBA event and we ask that you sign our waiver (on site), or you can sign NEMBA's once-a-year Ride & Trail Care Waivers ahead of time.  Read more about Wachusett NEMBA Bearsden Trail Day & Ride
