NEMBA Kids Ride - Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day

Event Date

10/1/16 9:00am to 1:00pm

****CANCELLED***
We have been actively watching the weather and have strong confidence that the Fells will receive significant enough rain starting tonight and running through the conclusion of the scheduled kids ride tomorrow to make conditions at the fells difficult for riding. As sad as we are to be rained out three years in a row our goal is to make any ride we sponsor to be fun and safe. We still have one kids ride left on Sunday, November 27 at the Fells. See you then!

This Saturday is Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day and GBNEMBA plans to once again celebrate! Come join us for some biking, arts & crafts, food and much more.

Come join us as we celebrate International Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day at the Middlesex Fells! There will be guided rides at 9:30am and 10:30am. BBQ Lunch at noon, crafts and a raffle for some sweet bike swag!

The Kids’ Rides are designed for children ages 6-15.  Based on the skill levels of the participants, we typically break into two groups: one for kids who have more experience with riding, and a second group for beginners.  All we ask is no training wheels. 
 
No registration is required.  If you have any questions about the Kids’ Rides please contact Andrea Jones.

These rides allow children to have fun while enjoying the outdoors and getting some fitness.  In addition to learning some biking skills, we teach respect for the parks, trails, and other trail users.  The ride will be well staffed and every safety precaution will be observed (we typically have one of the MTB Patrol along if first aid is needed).  Parents are welcome on the ride but not required.  Riders must have a serviceable bike, properly fitted helmet, and water for the ride.  All riders must wear closed-toed shoes - no flip flops or sandals.  Snacks will be provided!

NW CT NEMBA Kids/Family Ride

Event Date

5/29/16 10:00am
Our first Kids/Family ride of the season will be on May 29th. We'll be riding from Sessions Woods WMA in Burlington CT. Meet at 10am and we'll get rolling as soon as everyone is ready. Please respond if you're planning on coming so we know to wait for everyone. Participants should be able to ride a bike without training wheels, and, as always, everyone must wear a helmet. The pace will be slow, with plenty of stops for re-hydration and snacks. We'll ride 1-4 miles or so, depending on the group. The goal is to introduce children to the fun of riding bikes in the woods. No one will be left behind and we'll do our best to make sure that everyone has a good time! You do not have to be a NEMBA member to join the ride. Click here for directions: Sessions Woods WMA Please check back here, our Facebook event page, or via email (contact@nwctnemba.org) for updates on the ride location, or any changes to the time or date.
