    Come ride and talk mountain biking at our spring summit at on Cape Cod!
    On behalf of NEMBA, the Concerned Long Island Mountain Bikers, the Jersey Off-Road Bicycle Association, and the Fats in the Cats, we're pleased to announce our North East MTB Advocacy/Ride Summit.

    While most of New England will be covered in snow and ice, we'll be riding on some of the finest roller coast trails on Cape Cod and have a full-on schedule of topics to get our mountain biking on.

    For those of you who’ve never experienced Cape Cod riding, it’s wonderfully unique. Imagine tight swoopy singletracks with lots of short ups and downs and very few rocks. It’s basically rollercoaster riding on buffed trails, perfect for getting back your riding legs while much of the northeast is still in grip of winter or mud season.

    Joining us will be Gary Sjoquist, Quality Bicycle Parts professional mountain bike advocate and Mountain Bike Hall of Fame inductee. Gary has 20+ years of advocacy experience in funding trail systems, building industry coalitions, creating youth mountain bike race programs, and promoting groomed winter fatbike riding opportunities. He also kicks butt on a mountain bike!

    $175 Registration -- This includes the summit, all the rides, and all meals (Saturday breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday breakfast and lunch).

    Register Here for the Summit

    Once registered, we have reserved special discounted pricing at the Cape Codder. Rooms, normally $160, are available to us for just $99 (double-occupancy). To get this special pricing, please call in your reservation at 888-297-2200 and reference the code: NEMB0401. You may also reserve your room online using the code where it says "Group Discount Code" at Cape Cod Family Resort, Hyannis Lodging, Hotel Rooms, Suites & Wave Pool.
