Trail of Tears Shooting Range

Saturday, August 30, 2014

Do you want to continue to keep the West Barnstable Conservation Area quiet and safe for biking?  We need your help! A group of concerned citizens are working to keep the shooting range (located on the north side of the West Barnstable Conservation Area) closed. 

The Town of Barnstable wants to re-open the range as soon as it can (it's been closed since Dec 2012).  A few trails will be closed to make a "buffer zone" from the shooting ranges. 

If you are concerned about this and might be willing to write an email or make a phone call, or, if you just want to learn more about what's going on regarding efforts to keep the Conservation Area safe for ALL passive recreation, send a note to friendsofwbca@yahoo.com and we'll get right back to you!  Thanks!

At the October 16th Barnstable Town Council meeting the Council voted to put off consideration of this issue until January 22nd.    http://www.barnstablepatriot.com/home2/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=37638&Itemid=152

>>Try to attend that meeting it will be at 7:00 PM at Town Hall, South Street, Hyannis that's when the vote is expected to be taken. Read more about Trail of Tears Shooting Range

Wompatuck Race Prep Ride

Date

8/10/14 8:30am to 12:30pm

On Sunday 08/10, we'll be out with Bikebarn Racing to prep the 2014 Landmine Mountain Bike Classic course.

Meet at 8:30am at the Visitor Center parking lot, rolling out by 9. This is the day that we get almost all of the trails cut back.

We send out five or six rolling groups (i.e., on bike) to each cut back four or five miles of trails. We also need help from volunteers on foot for a couple of projects. % miles of trails won't take very long as the trails are already in great shape.  -  Then we'll go for a ride.  :-)

Lunch provided afterwards. 

This will be a fun ride and there will be a group for evey rider no matter what pace they prefer. Join us and help the Friends of Wompatuck and SE MASS NEMBA get ready for Wompatuck biggest fundraiser of the year.

Hope to see you there!

Sandy Neck Beach Fat Tire Policy

Sunday, June 8, 2014

Sandy Neck, Barnstable Beach Fat Tire Policy

A web page for Fat Tire Bike information for folks that want to ride on Sandy Neck Beach has been created.  As Fat Tire Bikes continue to grow in popularity, the challenge is going to be to keep riders educated during the summer (shorebird nesting) seasons.  It is during this time (April through September) that areas of the beach will be closed to many types of recreational activates (including biking) as required by state and federal endangered species protection laws.  Within these closed sections there can potentially be hundreds of tern and plover nests/chicks that are camouflaged almost completely with sand.  I would suggest that mountain bikers check this web site prior to each visit as the closed areas will change over the season.  Also, it goes without saying (but we will say it nevertheless) fat tire bikes must stay on open marked trails.

After and before nesting season, usually from sometime in September to sometime in May, (though that can vary significantly), most established trails are open to bikes. But, as always there's never any riding on the dunes.

Check the  Fat Tire Bike information page for updates.

Cape Cod NEMBA Saturday Mellow Ride

Event Date

Repeats every week every Saturday 200 times .
3/16/19 10:00am

Note: This ride series is back on!

Saturday Mellow rides are designed to be fun!

They are low key follow-the-leader rides where the goal is to get out and enjoy the woods rather than race through them.

The trails we ride are usually easy and this is a perfect ride for people with developing skills, kids and families and people getting back into riding afetr a break.

from adderall We normally ride for about 1.5 hours and we stop frequently to catch our breath, or, if desired, occasionally we'll practice a skill.

Better riders will enjoy these rides as recovery rides or to just cruise around in the woods without presure.

Saturday Mellow rides will happen frequently on Saturdays. But only when I know people are coming.

by phentermineYou can register for this ride using Eventbrite. 

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cape-cod-nemba-saturday-mellow-ride-june-registration-109410969154

Be sure to check off "Do you agree to report the onset of any of these symptoms during the ride and remove yourself from the ride?"

This ride will be limited to the first 6 people who sign up and will conform to NEMBA's Guideance for Holding Group rides.

I'll respond with the location, directions or to answer any questions. 

   Also save time by signing NEMBA's once-a-year Annual Waiver ahead of time.
