SNH NEMBA -Bear Brook Trail Care CANCELED

Date

4/26/14 9:00am

trail event is cancelled while State reviews all trail usage
we will be hosting a intermediate ride instead at the toll booth parking lot 9am

We will be working on clearing the trails that were damaged by the most recent logging over the winter. Meet at 8:45 at the toll booth on Deerfield Road. We will be working at the bottom of Sentinel Pine. If we have enough people and time, we will then head over to clean up Hemlock. If you have a chainsaw and feel comfortable using it, please bring it along. Otherwise I'll plan on having the tool trailer at the site with all the tools we will need. I think it will still be too wet to ride at that point, so it's just a work day this time. Any questions, call Kathy 603-724-7187. Pass this along to anyone that might be interested. Hope to see you there! Read more about SNH NEMBA -Bear Brook Trail Care CANCELED

Wednesday Night Ride - Trail work!

With the Bike for Bovines race less that 2 weeks out it is time to give the trails at Stonewall Farm a last minute detail.

Lets meet this Wednesday at 6PM with leaf rakes or leaf blowers and give the trails a once over. Many hands make light work. If enough turn out we just might have time for a ride as well, so bring your bikes too.

Also, if someone has a weed-wacker bring it a long so we can touch up where the trails enter at the power lines. I think behind the learning center and the other 2 power line crossings are OK, but by the garden needs another pass. It is currently tick country in there. Read more about BK NEMBA Trailcare & Ride

SNH NEMBA Women's Weekend Skills Session #1

Event Date

6/17/18 (All day)

Alanna and I will be teaming up to host a special skills session at Yudicky for Advanced Novice Women Riders that want to try new skills and features to work towards Mountain Biking Goals. 

We will start off with some skill work in the parking lot and then move to practice the features on the trails. Yudicky is a great location to try new skills as it is packed with many natural and man-made features in such a short loop.

Be sure to bring water, trail snacks, bug spray and sunscreen. Helmets are mandatory. At the beginning of the ride there will be a waiver to sign as well.

Address 1 Gregg Road, Nashua, NH will get you to the park, please park at the first lot behind the baseball field.

The session will run from 11:00 Am to 1:00 PM.   Hope to see you there. 

Late breaking details will be posted on the Facebook Page. Read more about SNH NEMBA Women's Weekend Skills Session #1
