A Warm Welcome to Franconia Area NEMBA

Saturday, May 2, 2015

On May 2nd, 2015 NEMBA Board of Directors voted unanimously to grant Franconia Area NEMBA chapter status.  We welcome Franconia Area NEMBA to the organization and are confident that they’ll do great things for the sport and for the trails.

Their goal is to preserve, maintain, and develop the trails in the Franconia, Easton, Sugar Hill, Bethlehem, and Littleton region and to promote the growth of the mountain biking community and educate the general public about responsible and sustainable biking.

They plan to work not only with local towns and land trusts, but also to partner with the Appalachian Mountain Club, Plymouth State University and The White Mountain National Forest. The area is rich in open space protection and recreation, and the new chapter will allow for mountain bikers to get more involved in protecting and shaping the future of the sport.

 

Franconia Area

Franconia Area NEMBA was founded in 2015 to help steward, promote and improve the extensive network of trails in the Ammonoosuc Valley, which run north and west of Franconia Notch. The Ammonoosuc Valley extending from Bretton Woods to the Connecticut River offers extensive riding opportunities with gentle terrain in the valleys and challenging singletracks in the hills with stunning vistas along the way.

The Profile Trails Network includes the trails in the Franconia Easton Sugar Hill region with connections planned to neighboring towns of Bethlehem and Littleton. The center of the network is Dow Park and Fox Hill in the village of Franconia. There are restrooms behind the Chamber of Commerce in the Town Hall parking lot. Cannon Mountain, Franconia Notch State Park and the White Mountain National Forest are located on the south side of Franconia. The Cooley Jericho Community Forest owned and maintained by Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust is located at the junction of Easton, Landaff and Sugar Hill and includes a newly built trail system including a purpose-built single track that connects Trumpet Round Road in Sugar Hill to Route 116 in South Easton by Connection to the NFS Jericho Road Trail and several hike bike multi-use trails.

The Profile Trails cover private as well as public lands, is maintained by volunteers and is shared with community users in all seasons. We depend on the generosity and goodwill of private landowners to preserve the integrity of the network, and ask that all trail users be respectful of land owners, fellow trail users, and the trails themselves.


Join our chapter and help make this area even better for mountain biking!

 

Pemi Valley Chapter Meeting

Date

12/9/14 6:00pm

It is crazy how fast the riding season came to end. As I write this it is raining, or snowing, or maybe raining... not exactly sure, but in any case, my bike is up on the rack. Maybe it's time to buy a fat bike?

Join us at our next Chapter Meeting, and if there is an agenda item you would like to see, please let us know.

Hope to see you there.

WMNEMBA Benifits From Recent Bike Swap

WMNEMBA

Friday, June 6, 2014

Stan and Dan Sports 1st annual Bike Swap was recently held with 10% of the proceeds going to  WMNMBA and 10% to MWV Biking Club. Lots of great deals were to be had. They had 110 bikes and bike items put up by owners and over a 3rd sold providing WMNEMBA with over $100 donation! Many enjoyed the opportunity to ride with our own local grown pro rider Peter Ostroski, part of the Rocky Mountain Altitude Team.

Local club members showed up and helped with the bike swap, demo Rocky Mountain bikes and just hang out with fellow riders. MWV Radio also was on hand for a remote broadcast. In all a good day and WMNEMBA benefited both with a check and a new bike shop who’s grand opening included a fundraiser for us! Thanks Stan, Dan and crew!

Upper Saco Valley Land Trust

WMNEMBA

Friday, June 6, 2014

The Upper Saco Valley Land Trust is engaged in a campaign to close out the purchase of an easement on the land surrounding Mount Surprise, which includes a number of singletrack trails, and the top of Mount Surprise (north of hurricane mountain road). It would be nice to have mountain biker support for this project, to show that we are engaged in these land projects and are an interested player. We have a vision of an epic singletrack that connects the Conway Forest, Whitaker and the (to be created) Rail Corridor Trail along the sidehill of Kearsarge North to the base of red tail – this is the first piece (and already has nice trails on it!).


Please consider donating to the campaign – whatever amount, whether $5, $50 or $500, will be noticed – We want to be able to show the USVLT board (and this and future land donors) the huge number of mountain bikers that contributed. You can donate by clicking on the donate button on this link.
