SE MA NEMBA Wompatuck Clip & Ride

Date

8/17/21 8:30am

SE MA NEMBA & Friends of Wompatuck Clip & Ride

We will be having a clip & ride Saturday 8/21 starting at 8:30 from the Transfer Station at Wompatuck State Park.

Wheels will hit the dirt by 9:00.  Bring a folding saw if you have one and some hand loppers.

   Bring bug spray - as you don't want anything bugging you on this ride.

The plan is to split up into groups and to ride out to a few areas on the Landmine Classic course to do some overgrowth clipping.

Each group will ride out to a different area and after the work is done, go for a ride.

For some, this will be a chance to see parts of the Landmine course.

   Updates, and a cancellation notice if it's a crappy day will be posted on this Facebook Page. Read more about [node:title]

SE MA NEMBA Adams Farm Ride

Event Date

7/19/21 5:00pm

SE MA NEMBA ADAMS FARM RIDE  (postponed due to wet conditions)

Adams Farm to Rocky Woods

The next SEMass NEMBA ride at Adams Farm will be taking advantage of our 8:15PM sunset.  This ride will be going to Rocky Woods and back. 

We’ll be meeting at the Adam’s Farm barn in Walpole Monday July 19 at 5 PM with wheels down NLT 5:15 PM.

This is a long ride.  Including the warmup, we’ll be riding 15 - 20 miles for OVER 2 hours of riding. 

You must be an experienced rider in good condition, must be able to stay with the group, and sustain a fun pace over a long distance. 

This is not a hammerfest but it is not a beginner ride either.  I ride to have fun.  

Adams Farm, Red Gate and Fork Factory are mostly single track.  Rocky Woods is mostly double track but with a fair amount of climbing.  The descents are super fun and the terrain is beautiful.  

The route will cross Adams Farm, hit the Red Gate Farm conservation area, traverse about a mile of residential roads, re-enter the trails at Fork Factory Brook, then cross Hartford Street to enter into Rocky Woods.  We’ll zig zag about 6 miles of trails in Rocky Woods before heading back more or less  the same route.  Bring a well-maintained bike, lots of water, bug spray, and a little food.  We should return about 8PM.  

Anyone who wants can join me for a post-ride brew at Castle Island Brewing Co.  They close at 9PM.

You don't have to be a member to attend this ride, but you must have pre-signed NEMBA's Annual Waiver.

Contact me with questions.  Tom McKenna,

SE MA NEMBA Adams Farm Ride

Event Date

6/28/21 5:00pm

SE MA NEMBA Adams Farm Fun Ride

I’m holding a long overdue SEMass NEMBA ride at Adams Farm in Walpole this Monday June 28 meeting at the barn at 5PM.

I plan to start out with a fairly easy 3 mile warm up loop (double & single track, bridges, rock gardens, rock walls, rooty trails all included) then circle back to the parking lot, pick up stragglers about 5:45, and go out again for a little harder trails (mostly single track with more rocks, roots and a little faster) heading initially toward the gun club.

We will be done a little before 7 so anyone who wants to can make it to Castle Island Brewing Co. for our chapter meeting. SE Mass NEMBA members and prospective members are always welcome.

You don't have to be a member to attend this ride, but you must have to pre-signed NEMBA's Annual Waiver.

Adams Farm has about 12 miles of mostly intermediate single track, some of the best in SE Mass. Its very mountain bike friendly, great for beginners & for those that like to hammer.

It can be confusing with the extensive network of trails but you are never actually far from the parking area.

Adams Farm should be on your list of riding areas.
