Blackstone Valley NEMBA Tuesday Morning Ride Series

This ride series will explore many of the riding areas in our region.

The rides will be fun, no-drop rides but are probably not for beginners.

The rides will start at 9:00 AM, but try to arrive by 8:45 so that we can get going on time.

You do not have to be a member of NEMBA to go on these rides. 

But you do have to have signed NEMBA's annual waiver before you attend the first one.

  Unless you've already done so.

Contact me, Bruce Rioux,   with questions.

Details for each week's ride will be posted to the BV NEMBA Facebook Page.

Full Moon Over Sherborn - Flower Moon Tuesday, May 25

Tuesday, May 25 at 7:30pm is the next Full Moon mixed terrain ride starting at Ride Studio / Ride Headquarters in Sherborn. The best mixed terrain riding is found at night under the Full Moon.

Bring your gravel, cyclocross, mountain or fat bike to the ride! Any bike with 35mm knobby tires or bigger will have fun. The bigger, the better as we will be on all surfaces. Bring a mask, it's easy to ride far enough apart such that we are able to stay safe.

After the ride, we enjoy cold drinks outside, socially distanced but it's easy to enjoy a good conversation in the fresh air! 

We ask all to RSVP, please email  , so we know you will be coming. We will email all who RSVP with any last-minute details by 5pm before the ride.

   Be sure to sign NEMBA's Annual Waiver. (But you only have to sign it once.)

Description

The Delaney Wildlife Management area consists of 577 acres of conservation land originally designed as a flood control project.

It's frequently referred to as the Delaney Flood Control Project it's managed by the Massachusett Department of Fisheries and Wildlfie.

The trails are really fun.

The best place to park is on Finn Road in Harvard. From here you'll find trails on both sides of the road. 

The area north of Finn Road is larger and consists of some very smooth flat trails and also intermediate and a few advanced trails. I'd recommend that beginners and families try these trails first.

Alternative parking for the flattest/easiest of these trails starts at the boat ramp parking lot.

The area south of Finn Road is more technical, though not overly so. You'll enjoy riding over a lot of roots, but there are no big drops.

One trail has a steep downhill/uphill at a bridged stream crossing. A few trails end in dead ends at private property boundaries, but most loop around.

The best maps of the area as well as the best description and some great pictures of the area are on this PAGE.

Whether you're looking for a scenic fun ride or moderatly technical challenges you'll find it at Delaney.
