    Excellent, lots of options for the area now. If interested we can post the ride info on the CNHNemba site if you have it in advance. PM me for details.

    CNHNemba will be starting our weekly Thursday rides starting next week (fast-ish pace). Location varies from week to week. We will also be doing a beginner/novice ride every Friday at Franklin Falls starting soon.

    If all goes as planned this weekend, you will be able to go to ON & OFF RHODES and there will be a tab by Sunday evening called "Tuesday Rides". We will post time and location for the Tuesday night rides by most Sunday evenings.

    Three of us hit up Bear Brook tonight. The conditions there are awesome right now. Bow trails more than likely next week. Keep an eye out here or at ON & OFF RHODES for details.

    Tim thanks for joining me and my brother.

    I am looking to hook up with some more local week night rides. I am in Dover and may be able to break away for a Tuesday night spin with a new group. A few years back I was heading up to Laconia to ride with the Chainline Cycles crew, but that's when I lived in Rochester. Anyone willing to travel to Fort Rock on a Tuesday? Trails have been stellar lately and is always a good time!

    Anyone interested in riding the Tuesday night ride tomorrow night should try to meet @ 5:30 near the gate on Langley Parkway where it ends at the Concord Hospital grounds. We'll be riding the hospital trails and the quarries. Forecast is for potential showers. If it is pouring at 5:30 we'll cancel the ride.

    100% chance of rain basically all day tomorrow on 5/8/12. No Concord area mtn bike ride is planned at this point. 50's and rain is not my idea of fun right now. Hopefully the weather pattern will change by next Tuesday.

    Well, Tuesday nights have been pretty sketchy lately. Like tonights thunderstorms, not the best conditions to ride in.

    So, instead the group ride will be Thursday this week and the plan is to ride the 6/12/24 hour course at Pats Peak. Meet in the parking lot no later thank 6pm. Plan on riding two laps.

    Now that we finally have a decent looking Tuesday Forecast, the Tuesday ride for 6/19/12 will be riding the hospital trails, St Paul's, and Bow trails. Meet at the yellow gate on the Concord Hospital side of Langley Parkway for 6pm.

    Hey everyone, I'm moving to Concord late this week to start my new job and I am looking to check out the trails around Concord. I started riding seriously this year, I bought a Specialized Hardrock so I'm not into anything too extreme. I'd like to think I can hold my own considering given my experience and equipment though. Right now I'm living in the Woodsville area and I've met some of the locals who have been whipping me into shape and giving me a taste for some more technical riding.

    I've heard great things about the trails around Concord and have found several maps, but riding is always more fun with other people.

    Are these weekly rides still going on? Anyone want to show the new guy what the area has to offer?

    My brother just moved to Oregon, but I am keeping it alive on Tuesday nights as much as I can. PM me your email address and I can add you to the list I send out. Nothing this week since tomorrows weather is supposed to blow.
