CR NEMBA invites you to the Kona MTB Adventure Series ride on Saturday, September 23, at the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center in Carrabassett Valley, Maine. Come ride the epic trails of the Carrabassett Valley during peak foliage. Join us for riding fun followed by complimentary beverages courtesy of Baxter Brewing Company as well as burgers and hot dogs. We’d welcome anyone bringing along a pot-luck side to add to the feast. We hope you’ll stay for our informal annual meeting.

Riding:

Riders of all abilities are welcome and invited. There will be guided rides as outlined below, as well as self-guided routes clearly marked for those who wish to venture on their own. Ride Guides will show you the trail system with riders of similar ability with an emphasis on having fun and connecting with fellow riders.
