Penobscot Region NEMBA wonders?

Do you want to get a taste of mountain bike racing this summer? If so The Race Clinic Series or RCS is for you!

Every two weeks, we will put on the RCS to help you train harder and become a better bike handler.

The courses will be designed to appeal to weekend warriors and hot-shots alike. •Races will take place on a short lap (0.5 to 2 miles) which will be repeated for approximately one hour. •Costumes and spectators are highly encouraged.

•Each course will be designed with several skills to keep in mind during the RCS Results will be unofficial and no one will know how many times you got lapped by the ten-year-old riding a unicycle. A well-marked course prevents dropped riders from getting lost.

*Best part is: it's FREE! **And for all abilities of rider.

Locations, Dates and Times are all subject to change with plenty of advanced notice. KEEP AN EYE ON THIS FACEBOOK PAGE. Read more about PR NEMBA Race Clinic Series

Schmid Preserve, Edgecomb

190 Middle Rd
Edgecomb  Maine  04556
United States

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.
