The One, the Only, the Wicked Ride of the East. North Shore NEMBA has made this event into one of New England “must-do” mountain biking events, and it’s a great final gathering of mountain bikers before the snow begins to fly. This year will showcase some of the best trails the forest has to offer, not-so-coincidentally built by North Shore NEMBA’s trail building gurus. Get ready to lock ‘n load!
Costumed riders get free chili! (Well, it’s free anyway but will taste better in costume!)! Ya’ never know, we might have some great prize if you show your halloween spirit ….. or not. Trick or Treat?
There will be arrowed courses for beginner, intermediate and advanced cross-country riders, as well as led rides of all levels.
Women riders! Join Highland Mountain Bike Park’s Karen Eagan for a Ride Like A Girl beginner clinic. Karen asks that ladies pre-register with her via email – firstname.lastname@example.org.
