CR NEMBA Volunteer Trail Work Day #4

Date

7/6/19 9:00am to 2:00pm

On Saturday, July 6, we are sponsoring our fourth volunteer trail work day of the season! This is an important work day as we’ll be weed whacking sections of the trails/race course for the 9th Annual Carrabassett Backcountry Cycle Challenge (completing the unfinished work projects from our June 29 trail work day). The CBCC is the largest yearly fundraiser for the Carrabassett Valley trail network! In addition, we'll be doing general summer trail maintenance (raking, cutting encroaching brush, etc). We have a few weed whackers to loan out but if you own a weed whacker, please bring it to the trail work day. Please also bring string and a mix fuel tank. We'll provide the fuel. Don't forget to bring eye and ear protection too. IMPORTANT: In addition to the info below, any additional event details will be posted on this Facebook event page so please check this page again as the date gets closer.

CE ME NEMBA Odyssey Ride

Date

10/19/18 (All day) to 10/20/18 (All day)

2nd Annual Odyssey Ride - Oct 19-20

This is the second year of The Odyssey Ride and we hope that it's better than ever.

What is the Odyssey you ask??

Well, that is completely up to you. In its simplest form the Odyssey is a reason to explore beyond your normal haunts. It's a reason to get a few of your riding buddies together and go ride as much as you possibly can, and then come together to celebrate around a bonfire. There are so many great trails that CeMe has had a hand in creating or maintaining that we created an event that celebrates that.

The event is free and CeMeNEMBA will be providing grillables starting at Titcomb around 5:30 on Saturday. We simply ask that you sign up on bikereg so we can get a head count for food. If you want your own 2nd Annual Odyssey Swag (we are thinking shirt, but we may also do a trucker hat or a beanie) you can reserve that too.

Go to https://www.bikereg.com/ceme-end-of-season-party-and-odyssey-ride to sign up and there's a lot more information there too.

Have a great weekend of riding!

Chris
