Cape Cod NEMBA Trail Care @ Nickerson SP

Date

Cape Cod NEMBA will be taking part in the DCR's Park Serve Day @ Nickerson State Park.

The event will run from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM on Saturday April 28th. There will also be an optional ride after the work is completed.

Projects are cutting down some leaning dead trees on the trails by Silas Road and trimming back the cat briars around the Flax Pond trail. Please comment if you can make it! 

If you bring your bike you can ride to the area, the areas of work are condensed and we won't be traveling a large distance like our usual trail maint days. Bring hand snipes and hand saws, we will need possibly two more chain saws. Come on CC NEMBA let's show our appreciation for the privilege to ride these great trails in Nickerson state park and help on the Park Serve Day.

Last minute details will be posted on our Facebook Page.

We'll meet at Niickerson's main parking lot next to the Cape Cod Rail Trail.  That's HERE! Read more about Cape Cod NEMBA Trail Care @ Nickerson SP

Cape Cod NEMBA Meetings

Date

8/5/16 (All day)

Cape Cod NEMBA Meetings are fun.  During the riding season they may include a ride or a cookout. But the norm is to have a party, and then errrr discuss chapter business.

We use the meetings to set up rides, trail care sessions and plan for the Cape's major biking events. But mostly we just discuss bikes and riding.

They are always BYOB and include some food. 

Locations vary. As each month's meeting is planned info will appear here, and on our Facebook Page.

This month we're holding the meeting in conjunction with the normal Friday evening Trail of Tears ride which starts from the 1590 Race Lane parking lot at 5:30.

If you like, bring your favorite food to throw on the grill and the Ice Cream Truck should be there at around 7:15.

Hope you can join us.  :-)

You don't have to be a member of Cape Cod NEMBA to attend.
