Fall Ride and BBQ


10/14/17 9:00am to 3:00pm

Fall BBQ Details are shaping up...

October 14th (Saturday)

Meet at 9AM on Summit Rd in Keene. Just a bit past the YMCA there is a big pull off on the left.

We'll split into appropriate groups based on desired pace/ride length/distance and head up. We can access the Food Network, Stonewall Farm, and points in between.

Rides will try to wrap up between 12-1, and then we'll head to my place at 733 Hurricane Rd. Just over 3 miles from the trail head.

BBQ, fire, socialization. Kids/significant others welcome.

You are welcome to attend just the ride, ride + BBQ, or just the BBQ.

Bring your own drinks and something to share.  The chapter will grill up some burgers, hot dogs, and veggie burgers.

If it is pouring, we'll forgo the ride, I'll through the garage doors up, and we'll just social/eat/drink.

I'll be putting together a sign-up so we can have rough #s.

Wasserman Park, Merrimack

116 Naticook Rd
Merrimack  New Hampshire  03054
United States








Wasserman Park is one of Merrimack's best known recreation areas. It has a dog park, a playground , tennis courts, playing fields and miles of trails. Wasserman's 46 acres directly abut the town's 87 acre Wasserman Conservation Area. But most poeple refer to both as Wasserman Park. Wasserman also has a sandy beach, though it's only open to Merrimack residents.

Wasserman has many miles of well maintained trails. One, the Quarry Trail, leads to the nearby Horse Hill Nature Preserve. A 563 acre property that itself hosts about 15 miles of trails. Attempting to do both in one day would be a heroic undetaking. The Gilmore Hill Memorial Forest can also be reached from Wasserman.

Wasserman's trails, especially the singletracks are tight, interesting and fun. Quite a bit of trail work has gone into them and this will be obvious as you explore them.

The best place to park is at the Dog Park parking lot. From there head back towards the Park's entry road, cross it by the Park & Recreation Office, and at the end of the Resident's Parking Lot look for a trail going into the woods. (See the map above on the right.)

You'll enjoy Wasserman Park. The trails will bring you back again and again. Oh! And almost every one of them are just as much fun to ride in both direction. Read more about Wasserman Park, Merrimack

Bridge Build


10/7/17 9:00am to 2:00pm

Local MTBer, NEMBA member, and Eagle Scout Jonathan Hills will be building a bridge for his Eagle Scout Service Project.

He'll be organizing a build of a 100' span of the long wet stretch on the "Snowshoe Trail" in West Keene. This trail is below the rail trail and is a nice climbing trail from down low, and a good winter fat bike connector over to Skittles and up to Rail Trail. Even in the winter there has been a moisture problem here. This should make it a great year round trail, avoid downhill traffic on Rocket Pop, and help get us off the two track climb even more.

Rain date is Sunday the 8th.

We need to know if you are coming so Jonathan can arrange pizza and water.

Bring muscles, water/snacks, gloves, cordless drills if you have them. A rock bar, shovel, and Rogue Hoe or two could come in handy.


We will meet at Peter Poanessa's (36 Dickinson Rd Keene, NH) at 9am.

We'll update details as they come in. Hope to see you, many hands make light/less work. Read more about Bridge Build

Brattleboro Wednesday Night Ride - Grand Reopening!


8/16/17 5:15pm to 9:00pm

Join us August 16th in Brattleboro for an epic Wednesday Night Ride.  Kind of a Grand Reopening!  Meet at the parking area for the hockey rink at the Living Memorial Park.

The crew in Brattleboro have been working hard adding new trail, cleaning up and buffing out the other stuff, and getting trails signed/marked and putting a map together.  And they aren’t done.  In fact, they are just getting started.

So on the 16th they’d like to have a bigger WNR and showcase what they have been up to.

There will be 2 ride groups. An inter-mellow (casual/social/intermediate pace) that will hit the berm trail, the new climbing trail, and the town trails.  You’ll probably hit them 2x (they are that good).  There will also be a faster ride that goes out to Pete's trails and back with everything in between. Tires roll for fast group @ 5:30.  People should try to arrive by 5:15 so the guys can give a brief intro to the land use arrangement that they have worked out.

You’ll want to stick around, West Hill will be providing après ride snacks and will set up a tent in the parking lot.  There will be printed maps to help get yourselves oriented as well.

If 5:15 is too early, you should still try to come out, if for no other reason than to hang out after and socialize.  But you can probably still get a good ride in and likely run into the crew out there.

Things are really starting to get going in Brattleboro again, so come out and show some support and learn how you can help.  There is a lot of potential for new trails in the area, group rides are going off consistently, shops are getting more involved…  Come learn more.

And if you have lights, bring them.  You probably won’t need them, but it is that time of year when darkness sneaks up on you!
