6 Rivers NEMBA Trail Day

Date

11/20/22 9:00am

Six Rivers NEMBA Butter Milk Cove Trail Day

Hello Six Rivers NEMBA members, We wanted to reach out and update everybody on some new trails in Brunswick, the Butter Milk Cove Trails.

Built by the town of Brunswick, there are approximately 3.2 miles of single track trails which are part of the Furbish East system They have been designed specifically for mountain biking, but will of course be open to hiking as well. The town of Brunswick in conjunction with six rivers, New England Mountain Bike Association are trying to put the finishing touches on these trails, and we are organizing a trail work day, Sunday Nov. 20 between 9am to 2pm to work on completing these trails.

We hope you’ll join us for a trail work day of cutting and fine-tuning trails and having a great time all together.

Please RSVP via email if you think you can make it.

Please also consider a donation for the upcoming Giving Tuesday, Nov 29th. As always, we can greatly appreciate your support and membership, without that support, 6RN can’t do the good work we strive to accomplish, so thank you.

I’d like to give a big thanks to our town liaisons Kristin Jhamb and Paul Burns, for working closely with the town of Brunswick on this. Click below to check out the trail map of the new sections.

 

Keep pedaling,

6RN Board

CE ME NEMBA Odyssey Ride

Event Date

10/14/22 8:00am to 10/16/22 8:00am

Central Maine NEMBA Odyssey Ride

Join us for our end of season trail exploration, ride challenge, and celebration of the local riding scene

Well, it would appear that once again Ma’ Nature has opted to combine our end of year Odyssey ride with a good old fashioned gully washer of a rain storm. Alas it’s not a total washout and there will be riding to be had for those that want. It may just look a bit more tame and a full Odyssey will be a bit more challenging for those going for it.

End of Season Party: We will still be gathering for our annual end of season party. Even if you aren’t able to ride a single trail this year for the event, please come say hi and help us toast the end of another great season. It’s a low key chance to mix it up with fellow riders and share some riding stoke. We will be at Van Der Brew in Winthrop from 5 o’clock on. They have a food truck lined up and there will be live music. There is a good chance we’ll have some leftover swag to give away, maybe even a raffle item or two.

Group Ride Schedule: Given the weather forecast we are changing the scheduled group rides.

Friday: No group rides due to the rain

Saturday: 2:30 pm ride/tour of Titcomb.

Sunday:

•Sunrise on the A-Trail. Meet in the parking lot at 5 with wheel rolling shortly thereafter. Mellow climb to the lookout for the first light of the day.

•4pm Mt.Apatite tour. Come help us celebrate the newest Mt. A trail and the completion of a multi phase project.

Don’t let the weather get you down and we’ll see you on the trails.

Central Maine NEMBA Dirt Divas Women's Clinic @ Titcomb Mountain

Dirt Divas Women’s Clinic Returns

Covid put our annual women’s only clinic on hold for the last 2 years, but it’s back as well. This event was a hallmark of our Dirt Diva group and helped a ton of lady riders bring their trail game to the next level. CeMeNEMBA brings this ladies only free clinic back to Titcomb Mountain on Jul 10, 2022. There is a $20 reservation fee, but you can get it back when you show up to registration. As a special bonus this year we have a local yoga instructor that is going to offer a pre-clinic 1 hour yoga class for 15 riders. Winter Adams will get you in your flow state before you jump on the bike and learn new things.
