    Bear Brook State Park

    Here's a write-up and video from this year's site of NEMBA-fest.

    I moved to the area two years ago. The trails that were once my favorite and most frequented, i have grown tired of. BB on the other hand just seems to get better and better. It just has that great middle of the road XC thing going on. Intermediate in all aspects and a ride there can be as difficult as you can make it. The singletrack there is well built.

    I personally don't like FOMBA. It just misses the mark for me. IMO, it doesn't flow nor have much of tech. Same thing goes for the Woronoco trail at Pawtuckaway. I just feel like i'm doing work with no payoff. In the end i'm just slowly biking through a 2 mile section of ST.

    I have been riding bear brook for 15 years. It's good, I also think it could be better..... FOMBA is not mountain biking to me, it's just biking without the mountain. As far as tech goes, try riding long trail without dabbing, then tell me it's not technical. For me Fomba is a great afterwork place, or training ground. The fun factor is not there for me..
    determined to put the "mountain" back in "MOUNTAIN BIKING!!!" "HIT IT!"
