Blackstone Valley NEMBA Sherborn XC Scramble

Event Date

Repeats every week every Tuesday 8 times .
5/7/19 6:00pm

Sherborn XC Scramble  

Join Steve the Bike Guy (STBG) and friends for a fast MTB ride through Sherborn in May and June. The course will vary from week to week with distances between 10-18 miles or up to 2 hours. The trails consist of fast single and double-track with moderate climbs. The terrain may be intermediate but the ride pace will be swift as we do our best to make hay before the sun sets and put in some miles. Long June days will allow more flexibility. A few of the planned routes will have limited road transfers between trails.

For those with a Garmin or other ride tracking device, we will be providing a route link ahead of time through the individual Facebook event. Please know Sherborn is a big equestrian town so in the event we encounter riders, we will stop and lay bikes down for horses to pass. Young horses are often being trained on the trails and can spook easily.

The STBG Velo Studio located at 25 N Main Street closes at 6:00pm and the plan is for the ride to start promptly at 6:10 pm (and should end around sunset), so come a few minutes early to get ready to ride. Lights should not be required but might come in handy late in the ride until sunset extends past 8:00.

Note:  Save time by signing NEMBA's once-a-year Annual Ride Waiver ahead of time if you haven't already done so.

What to bring:
* Mountain Bike in good working order.
* Spare tube and/or tubeless plugs to fix a flat if necessary.
* Water - Bottle or hydration pack (limited bottled drinking water will be available for filling)
* Food - Some riders may need nutrition on a fast paced 2 hour ride.
* Helmet

Please do not arrive with the expectation of getting mechanical issues looked at. STBG will be busy with service appointments and other scheduled customers until closing time. If availability allows we’ll see what can be done but the ride must start on time. A self service tool and air station will be available outside.

Parking:
There are 6 marked spots available directly in front of the STBG Velo Studio. All others please park in the playground lot on Cemetery Lane directly across the street (1 minute ride away).

NOTE: Changes to the ride, including cancellations, will be posted to the Facebook event. Please check before riding. Falling rain cancels.

GBNEMBA Wednesday Middlesex Fells Reservation

Event Date

Repeats every week every Wednesday until Wed Aug 28 2019 .
5/1/19 6:00pm

The Wednesday Fells ride meets at the Bear Hill Parking Lot off Fallon Rd in Stoneham (Marjam Supply Co). "The Fells" is the birthplace of NEMBA, and convenient to your northern commute out of Boston. Get out of rush hour traffic for a while and ride your bike! You'll ride rocky, rooty singletrack interlaced with fire roads and a few hills with great views of the city. Depending on attendance, this ride usually breaks up into three smaller groups of differing pace. If you're not sure which group you belong in, go with the slower of your choices. We use the Second Rider Drop method, with a leader and a "sweep", to ensure nobody gets lost. ". If you're not sure which group to go with, please choose a group "one slower" than you would place yourself. Of course somebody will escort you out if you bonk, but nobody wants that. Due to the technical nature of the Fells this is not the best progression from the Monday Beginner/Novice Ride. Try LLF on Thursday first.

Save time by signing NEMBA's Annual Ride Waiver ahead of time.
