CANCELLED GB/NS NEMBA 2019 Kids Ride Series - Ice-Cream Reboot Ride

Event Date

9/21/19 10:15am to 12:00pm

***CANCELLED! After careful consideration, we have decided to cancel our kids ride scheduled for this Saturday. The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) has raised the EEE risk to high in the Topsfield / Ipswich area. We feel that having an outside event under this latest update is probably not prudent. Please keep an eye out for details on our October 20 Kids Mountain Biking Festival.***
