White Mountains NEMBA
Sunday, August 30th— Monthly Trailwork Sunday REMINDER. We’re planning on rerouting the south end of the Muffler Trail, meeting at 8:30 at the Hemlock Rd. parking lot. Please bring gloves and wear sturdy shoes, bug dope is highly recommended! Tools will be supplied, bikes are not needed–it’s a short walk to the project site.
Our 15th annual trailbuilding weekend is coming up 7/25 and 7/26. We will be building new trails in the town of Conway’s new Marshall Conservation Area on West Side Road. Schedule for the weekend:
8:30 am – meet at Marshall Conservation Area (MCA) at stone pillars where RR tracks cross West Side Road.
Lunch on your own
2:30 pm – rides leaving from MCA
6:00 pm – barbecue at Echo Lake State Park. Drive into the park and tell toll attendant you are with NEMBA.
Summer season is on! There are still branches and blow downs around so please keep your eyes open and remove those derailleurs breakers when you can. The Tuesday night crew is working each week to improve the local trails so please join us or provide input where work needs to be done.
Our monthly trail work sessions run from 8:30 am to about 12:30 pm, the schedule is as follows:
- July 25th and 26th – our 15th annual MTB weekend
- August 30th – TBD
- September 27th – TBD
Trail Stewards – We are always looking for volunteer stewards to be responsible for basic maintenance (primarily drainage work, pruning and small blowdown removal). Please consider adopting your favorite trail or one close to home. You will not be tasked with doing everything – if a trail warrants a full trail day or a Tuesday night tweak we can schedule it in.
Our mission is to advocate for mountain biking opportunities and create & maintain trails in the eastern White Mountains of New Hampshire. Our accomplishments so far are significant and speak for themselves. We rely on a group effort to get things done and to make our activities and events successful.
The chapter has a schedule of activities including weekly trail work and rides to suit all levels. Check the links on the right for descriptions of planned rides, meeting notes, a group calendar and other events. To be notified of activity on one of the postings, be sure to subscribe to the post.
While you are out enjoying the local trails, keep in mind that a dedicated group of people spend much of their spare time caring for them. Your input and involvement is critical to our continued success; we can’t fulfill your needs unless we know what you want. Please join NEMBA today and identify WMNEMBA as your local chapter. Your assistance will make a difference.
If you have any other suggestions to improve our trails, our communication, or our membership please let us know!
