Wednesdays, 5:30-7:15

Earl's Trails, Chmura Road parking lot

(Drive all the way to the end of Chmura Road in Hadley)

Ride Leader: Sara Draper, sdraper@nemba.org

Come try out a new kind of group ride: Workout Wednesday!

The goal is to provide a supportive environment for improving your MTB fitness. This means hill/loop repeats, potential for silly off-the-bike drills, and stretching afterward (if you don't sneak away). While this isn't a skills ride, the reps-and-repeat format will give you a chance to try trail sections multiple times or add in skills drills. Riders who are comfortable on singletrack and looking to improve fitness will get the most out of this ride.

Arrive by 5:30; we'll check in/warm up and leave the parking lot at 5:45. Bring your bike, helmet, water, and anything else you need for 1.5 hours in the woods.

White Mountains NEMBA Monday Ride

Co-Sponsored by Gorham Bike & Ski

Contact Sara @  sthomson13@gmail.com or Gorham Bike & Ski for more information.

These rides are for all levels of riders. We will always divide up into groups.

If enough women show up and want a separate group ride we'll do that too.

These rides are not races and our goal will always be to finish with more smiles than miles.

It's always a no-drop ride and we welcome newer riders.

Hope to ride with you soon.   :-)

   Oh!   Be sure to sign NEMBA's ride waiver.  But you only have to sign it once.

Below is a report on ride #2.

        Information on this week's ride will always be on the cited Facebook page.

The community SHOWED UP last night for group ride #2 in the Valley.⁠

We saw a turnout of first-timers, intermediate, and pretty darn experienced riders. We're stoked to see who joins us next time!

Interested in joining us but not sure if you can keep up? Don't worry. We'll work with you to decide your comfort & skill level, then split up into different rides to accommodate your needs.

Shoutout to our North Conway Store Manager, Sara, for leading the ride, and to the several riders who stepped up & helped out.

GB NEMBA - Landlocked Forest Thursday Ride

Event Date

6/3/21 6:00pm to 7:45pm

Friendly Thursday night LLF ride. We are offering 4 groups this week - listed in order of pace, with Adam leading the fastest and Mark leading a mellow ride.

Landlocked Forest is beautiful expanse of trails. The terrain is modestly technical with plenty of rocks and roots but mostly flowing singletrack. Practically all technical features including drops, jumps, large rocks, etc have a B line. These rides use second rider drop format to keep things moving but will stop to regroup occasionally - less in the faster rides.

Ride Pace will have slight variations and the best way to know what you are in for comes for riding with each lead in turn - work your way up in speed over time and start on a slower pace than you think for your first LLF group ride.


Two steps to riding bliss:

1. Sign your waiver (once a year!): https://smartwaiver.com/splash/17029

2. Pre-register here. Rides listed in descending order of ride speed from Faster Group #1 to Mellow Group #4

Group #1 Lead by Adam/Matt Sweeps: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/157737088879

WHEELS UP AT 5:30PM!!! Group #2 Lead by Jon K./Rob Sweeps: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/157736908339

Group #3 Lead by Mary/Eugene Sweeps: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/157736489085

GB NEMBA - Middlesex Fells Wednesday Ride

Event Date

6/1/21 10:15pm

We'll be riding in groups of 10, being mindful of COVID precautions at rider discretion. It is going to be a blast to get out in small groups and spin wheels at The Fells. Two steps to riding bliss:

1. Sign your waiver (once a year!): https://smartwaiver.com/splash/17029

2. Pre-register here. A WORD ABOUT RIDE PACE: Rides are listed in descending order of ride speed from Fastest being Group #1 to More Mellow Group #4. Rides 2 & 3 move at a steady state – reasonable clip, take infrequent breaks and basically move through the technical terrain of the Fells.  All rides except for possibly #1 – use second rider drop.  While we work to define uniform language about ride pace it is good idea to a.) get to know the ride leads so you get to know their pace and b.) until that time, chose a pace one lower than you estimate you are up for! Win, win! 

Group #1 Lead by James – Fast pace: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/157732852207

Group #2 Lead by Rob - Craig Sweeps: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/157732990621
