NW CT NEMBA Weekly All Levels Ride

Event Date

Repeats every week every Wednesday until Wed Sep 05 2018 .
5/2/18 5:30pm

This year NW CT NEMBA will be combining our Monday and Thursday rides into one ride on Wednesday each week.  We expect to split into 2 or more groups - one social paced and the other more advanced, with the option to create more groups as needed.

 

We're also switching up the locations a bit this year, by adding more spots into the regular rotation.  Don't worry, the Soccer Fields and Sessions Woods will still be in the mix, but we'll also be making regular visits to Harwinton, Cowles, and Nepaug.  The exact rotation of locations is still being worked on, so check back here, or our Facebook page, for more details as we get closer to May.

 

Please plan on arriving by 5:30, with the intention to be rolling out of the lot by 5:45pm.

NW CT NEMBA - Trumbull Ride

Event Date

9/16/17 10:00am

NW CT NEMBA is taking a field trip to Trumbull (Indian Ledge Park), Saturday, 9/16. 
Intermediate/Advanced ride due to the terrain - a lot of rocks and features to play on (rollers, drops, etc.) - not the speed.
Expect to be out anywhere from 2-3 hours, depending on group size and time spent on various features.
Protective gear (elbow pads, knee pads) recommended for those who have never ridden Trumbull (lots of rocks that can sneak up on you when you're not familiar with the lines...not to comfy if you eat it...).

We will be meeting in the commuter parking lot on Park Street (Route 25 and Daniels Farm Road, Exit 9 off of Route 25). Here are the GPS coordinates: 41.25236277 -73.20073556.

All other NEMBA groups (if you are a member of our FB page, too, and see this) are welcome - especially the Fairfield County Folks - would love to have you!
