Description

 

The following is from the Rangley Lakes Chamber of Commerce.

The Rangeley area offers some great Mountain Biking. The terrain is mountainous and the views are fantastic. You'll experience single and double track, gravel roads, logging roads and wilderness riding. You'll find (and go through) streams, ponds, deep forests, and open fields and see wildlife in their natural habitat.

The Rangeley Lakes Trails Center located at 524 Saddleback Mountain Road offers seven miles of trails for mountain biking. In difficulty rating, 2 miles are easy (to steel bridge and back along Tote Road). The remainder is suggested for advanced mountain bikers. Many of the area's woods roads provide excellent riding.

Before embarking on a ride, there are some basic rules one should follow. Preplan your trip; let someone know where you are riding and carry a map. Don't bike alone and stay in sight of each other on the trail. Have your bike checked out (lubricated, adjusted) before starting. At least one person in your party should carry a tool kit including: extra tubes, mini pump, tire levers, multi-tool, chain tool, extra chain link, tube patch kit, and spoke replacement. In addition, a compact first aid kit is handy to have along. Read more about [node:title]

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..

Schmid Preserve, Edgecomb

190 Middle Rd
Edgecomb  Maine  04556

Description

The 766 acre Schmid Preserve hosts a quiet multi-use trail network that is part of the River-Link Trail which runs the span of Edgecomb.

The Preserve contains some of the town’s largest and steepest hills and affords some views, as well as a historical site.

It sees limited use, mostly by hikers, but is conducive to mountain biking as well. Difficulty is varied, with some highly technical sections and some doubletrack roads.

It is possible to avoid the most challenging terrain by using the Old County Road trailhead.

There are two trail heads.

For the one on Middle Road, take a right onto Route 27 from Route 1 after passing through Wiscasset. In 2.5 miles take a left onto Middle Road. Go .9 miles until you see the parking lot and trail head on your right.

For the trail head off of Old County Road, take Route 27 from Route 1. Go 3.1 miles and turn left onto Old County Road. The trailhead is .4 mile on your right.

Six Rivers

  • Six Rivers NEMBA started in April 2018 to serve the Bath, Topsham and Brunswick area mountain bikers. We plan to partner with municipalities, land trusts and private landowners in order to link the numerous trail networks in the area. Our goal is to increase the viability of mountain bike trail development in Bath and Brunswick through advocacy and education, and develop new trails on municipal lands in Topsham. In addition, we are prioritizing youth outreach and programming, and working proactively with our local land trusts, municipalities, schools, and other organizations to identify, acquire, and protect areas for trails, increase off‐road connectivity in our communities, as well as promote outdoor recreation.

PR NEMBA needs Riders Like You

Wednesday, May 3, 2017


Would you like to be more involved with PR NEMBA?
  • At our last board meeting we developed committees to create an opportunity for members to be more involved. We know everyone has busy schedules so we created an opportunity for members to be involved in a limited way. These committees will meet 1-2 times a year and most communication will be done through email or messenger. Members of the various committees will be tasked with investigating, considering, reporting, or acting on different matters of business that PR NEMBA will be engaging in for 2017.
    • Current Committees are:
      Membership Committee
      Branding and Merchandise Committee
      Trail Development Committee
    • We are also looking for a member or two to head up the following committees:
      Program and Events Committee
      Fundraising Committee
  • If you are interested in more information about how you can step up and serve the mountain biking community in our area, please email prnemba@gmail.com.

And a few other things to consider.....

  • At least half (if not more) of the trails in the "bog" actually lie on BLT properties. As a land trust they must balance conservation and the recreational needs of their many users. Mountain bikers are their largest user group on these trails, we have put in hours of trail work on our own and with BLT over the past few years. And yet very few of us are paid members. Please consider joining or making a donation.  It would be nice to show BLT that conservation AND trails are not mutually exclusive......here's the link: BLT Donate Page
  • And if you are a rider of the Orono Land Trust properties, consider joining or donating to this land trust: OLT Donate Page
  • And don't forget about us!  Since we have organized we have been forging relationships with landowners. And they are taking notice. So please support our efforts to improve mountain biking opportunities in our community by joining or renewing here
