Attention mountain bikers! October is in full swing and our opinion, it’s the perfect time to ride (as long as the rain manages to hold out).
Earlier this year, we announced our proud sponsorship of the New England Mountain Bike Association (NEMBA), to play a substantial part in supporting its mission to promote responsible mountain biking and to protect and preserve New England trails and open space. We did this because we believe in NEMBA’s mission and several team members – including our co-founder and CEO Aaron Reames – count mountain biking as a hobby.
One of the most tangible (and fun) ways that mountain biking enthusiasts can see what our contribution to NEMBA looks like is by exploring the Mountain Bike Adventure Series (MBAS), which our sponsorship directly funds.
MBAS comprises dozens of rides spanning nearly all of New England, from Maine to Connecticut. The series is great for bikers of all skill levels and NEMBA does a fantastic job ensuring that the trails on all of these rides are well-maintained and welcoming.
The following upcoming rides – as the weather truly shifts into the exercise-friendly mid-50s/60’s of New England fall – are among our favorites. All rides and events can be found on the NEMBA website, as well. Come out and ride!
