You can also stay informed about the latest happenings by joining GBNEMBA's Facebook Group and our GBNEMBA Rides Facebook page.  We hope to see you on the trail!

Always be an ambassador for our sport! Best practices include:
  • Slow down when you see other riders, hikers, or animals.
  • Pass other trail users at about their speed - be courteous and talk to them
  • Ride through the center of a mud patch or puddle, NOT around it.
  • Ride over an obstacle, NOT around it.
  • If you can't ride over an obstacle, get off and walk it - stay on the trail.
  • Do not make new routes or trails.
  • Do not build stunts.
  • Do not skid, spin out, or fishtail - uphill nor downhill.
  • Always offer to yield the right of way.
  • Be friendly - say hi to other trail users!

BV NEMBA Trail Build in Upton

Date

7/10/22 9:00am

It would be nice if trails grew on trees – but they don’t. They have to be pulled from the ground.

We have that opportunity on July 10th with our first venture with the Town of Upton as they have accepted our offer to add a trail to the Whitney Parcel.

While the parcel itself isn’t that large it abuts Upton State Forest and is a key connector to the Warren Brook area.

The plan is to lay in the trail in 3-4 hours, break for lunch and then put first tires on the trail during a tour of the parcel.

Bring gloves, water, bug spray and your bike.

BV NEMBA will provide tools and lunch.

Please be sure to be ready to roll at 9 am as we’ll gather up and hike/bike to the trailhead together.

There will be volunteers to help with parking and direct you to the meeting location.

Sign up on Golden Opportunity to let us know you're coming!

   You don't have to be a NEMBA member to help out.
