SE MA NEMBA Thursday Intermediate Ride

Event Date

Repeats every week every Thursday 200 times .
2/2/17 6:00pm

Due to the Covid-19 crisis this ride is suspended until further notice.

 

This is intended to be a Intermediate ride. But It is more technical and has more hills than the Tuesday ride.

It is always a no-drop ride.

The route varies every week.

The ride is always dependent on conditions. It starts at 6:00 PM and normally runs until about 8:00.

The Foxborough rides usually start at the William O. Hocking Jr. Trailhead on Foxborough conservation land at 106 Main St Foxborough, MA.

But, on, normally, the last Thursday of every month the ride's location will switch to another location. These may include, Wrentham, Borderland, Vietnam or someplace else.

Email me any questions you might have and for the locations of the alternate ride sites.

Historic note: The Thursday Foxborough ride is the longest continuously running NEMBA ride.
