Kona Bicycles Mountain Bike Adventure Series


For the 8th year NEMBA will be holding Mountain Bike Adventure Series rides at various locations around New England. This year the series will feature some of the best riding areas in our region. There's no better way to explore a new riding area than following a marked course that highlights a venue's best trails at your own pace. And all monies collected normally fund local trail projects.

The ride series comes to Connecticut on Sunday, June 22nd, at Huntington State Park in Redding CT. This is the first time that the park has hosted this series. There will be new trails, lost of guided rides, skills sessions and many more reasons to join CT NEMBA in Southwestern Connecticut.

The event will take place at the parking lot (Statues) off of Sunset Hill Rd, in Redding.

Registration: 9 to 11 - $10 for members, $15 for non-members but if you join NEMBA the day of the event, then it's free.
Led Rides Depart: 9:30 & 10 (return 12:30)
Demos ( Iron Horse) , Women's Skill Sessions ( Campmor Womens' Race Team), Stunt Course : 10 to 1 PM
Award Winning BBQ by Jamie Shier ($10), raffle : 12 noon to 1:30 PM

Registration money will go to Huntington State Park for signs, maps, and trail improvements. BBQ money goes to Pan Mass Challenge.

Volunteers are needed, so please contact Paula Burton (peburton@aol.com or 203-426-5369) if you would like to help.

This blog is related to Kona Mountain Bikes that anyone can participate in kona mountain bike adventure series. In my view there is no better way to explore a new riding area than following a marked course that highlights a venue's best trails at ones own pace.
