Midcoast Maine NEMBA
Introducing Midcoast Maine
We're excited to announce that Camden, Maine and the surrounding region now has official mountain bike representation with a new NEMBA chapter: Midcoast Maine NEMBA.
Over the course of the past year the new chapter's leadership has identified almost 100 people and families with sufficient and active interest in mountain biking to support a new NEMBA chapter. Midcoast Maine NEMBA has enthusiastic support from the Directors of Parks and Recreation, the Camden Snowbowl, and the Land Resource Manager for Coastal Mountains Land Trust. If fact, these organizations urged that mountain bikers organize to work with officials in developing responsible mountain bike opportunities.
One of the first initiatives Midcoast Maine NEMBA will undertake will be to create a comprehensive trail map and signage system on the trails that span the Camden Snowbowl, the Ragged Mountain Recreation Area and the Coastal Mountains Land Trust Land on and around Ragged Mountain in Camden. The Coastal Mountains Land Trust and the Camden Snowbowl are 100 percent the effort to enhance the trail users’ experience in these lands.
The chapter has already formed an executive committee, headed by Kevin Davis as president and regional board representative, Casey Leonard as treasurer and board rep, John Anders, Steve Koskinen, Michael Hartley and Jeff Kuller. Each member has a different set of skills, be it trail maintenance, event planning, working with the youth that form the Maine Junior Bike Lean, and other leadership skills.
We welcome them and look forward to some good riding in Camden! If you’re interested in helping Midcoast Maine NEMBA, contact Kevin Davis at or call 207-542-4941.
