NS NEMBA Harold Parker Thursday Ride

Event Date

Repeats every week every Thursday until Thu Aug 31 2017 .
5/4/17 (All day)

The season has begun for the Thursday night NEMBA group ride in Harold Parker. We will ride each Thursday evening through September.
 
The ride is open to all who are interested in exploring the singletrack in Harold Parker and meeting other mountain bikers from the area. The pace is determined by the group, we wait at intersections and try not to get too spread out, we will not drop anyone. The pace will feel slow for the faster riders and fast for the slower riders. Ray Meyers and Bob Ganley will be teaming up to lead these rides, we may split into two groups some nights with a slightly slower and faster pace. 
 
We meet at 5:45 in the Jenkins lot at the intersection of Jenkins and Harold Parker roads in Andover MA.

Here is a link to the location on Google Maps.

Each rider will need to sign a liability waiver and we will depart the parking lot at 6pm, returning at dusk.
