Get Set for NEMBAfest!!!
NEMBA's mountain bike festival is just around the corner -- June 11th. Come for the day, or if you wish to make a weekend out of it, there will be camping the night before.
Presented by Dirt Rag Magazine, the festival is the largest event that's part of our Topeak-Kenda MTB Adventure Series.
There will be all sorts of led rides for people of all abilities, including some family rides.
Check out the industry expo -- get some great deals on bike stuff or demo some of the latest and greatest mountain bikes from Kona, Trek, Salsa, Carver and A.N.T. Other vendors include Bikeman, Bicycle Link, Bikebarn, Great Glen Trails, Kingdom Trails Association, MassBike, MetroSports, Northeast Bikes (selling off all their product), SportTobin, and Wilderness Trail Bikes ... and more.
You can even bring all your old bike junk and set up in the Bike Swap Zone!
Wompatuck State Park offers fantastic singletrack, as well as mellow trails for novice and family riding. We'll have many miles of marked trails for you to explore the forest and get your fill of great New England singletrack.
For camping, come after 12pm on Saturday. Make sure you bring everything you need since it's unsupported -- we'll try to have a nice bonfire for everyone under the stars. There is only an additional $15 charge to come spend the night.
On Sunday, the event and expo opens at 9am, and we'll have led rides leaving throughout the morning and early afternoon. There will be music, food and plenty of fun and games. Bring your friends ... and your whole family.
The cost of the event is $15. Kids 15 and under are $5 with a registered parent or guardian.
Wompatuck State Park is located near Hingham on Boston's South Shore.
