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

Description

If Central Maine had a crown Titcomb Mountain would be one of its jewels.  Located in Farmington Maine Titcomb has been owned and operated by the Farmington Ski Club since 1939. 

Over the past several years Central Maine NEMBA has added about 8 miles of purpose built single track. The trail design intertwines this single track among down hill and cross country trails, crossing but not following any of those ski trails. It’s possible to ride almost the entire system without crossing or repeating any of the single track. Switchbacks and grade reversals make the climbs enjoyable and the descents just plain fun.

The trails pack in lots of variety with numerous stonewall crossings and other rock work features. Everything, currently, is rideable without jumps, gaps or surprises, rock solid you might say.

During snow season there's a $5 fee and the trails can only be used by Fat Bikes.

The rest of the year the trails are open to all mountain bikes and there's no charge.

Titcomb hosts a very popular Fat Bike race in the Winter and the Titcomb Mountain Challenge in the summer..

Central Maine NEMBA Liv Adopt a Trail Night

Date

8/29/18 (All day)

It's not a regular TNT (Tuesday Night Trail work), so for those of you who have had work/scheduling conflicts, but are dying to get your hands dirty (and your conscience guilt-free), the ladies of Central Maine (and beyond) now have the opportunity to "adopt" a section of trail at Mt. Apatite- currently undergoing a major single track make-over thanks to the NEMBA Signature grant.

Under the expert guidance of a couple of local trail gnomes, we will be working on a much needed re-route of 'Gretel' around that stinky, sloppy puddle. The plan is for us to extend both ends of the trail by at least half a mile. Tools will be provided, so just bring a 'can do' attitude, your muscle, bug spray and gloves (this is totally a trail dog friendly event too).

What is your ROI (return on investment)? Hang in the woods with fun friends, be part of building and improving some local trail we all love to ride, assuage your guilt from not being able to attend other regularly scheduled trail events, be entered into a raffle for a sweet Liv MIPS helmet.

Oh yeah, and there will be a 'happy hour cooler' available.

We meet on Mt Apatite Road at 5:30 and be done by 7:30. Read more about [node:title]
