Rides

BVNEMBA Weekly Ride Series

These rides are open to everybody but please be aware of the skill level, it's not a race, and we do not drop anybody on these rides.

Our weekly evening ride series is a lot of fun, and it's a great way to meet other riders and discover the trails in our region. We'll be hitting the trails at 6:00 PM every Tuesday and Thursday. You just need to show up and be ready to go no later than 6:15. Pace varies according to the day of the week, please be aware of the type of ride to expect when you arrive. During September and October, as the days shorten, our rides become "twi-light" rides requiring lights. Because these rides present a new set of challenges, the beginner rides will end about that time.

Vietnam Freeride/Technical Rides

We'll be holding a weekly ride with the Vietnam Land Management Commitee starting in April and running through October. We'll ride at 6:00pm just like Tue and Thu but these rides are meant to be a bit different from our other group rides.

The goal is not to put miles under your tires but instead to get out and explore Vietnam with the volunteers who manage the property. We will not be riding many miles in most cases but I can guarantee a workout. We'll tackle rocks, streams, logs, chutes, drops and other natural and man-made technical trail features. These will be highly technical rides that will focus on engaging riders of all skill levels, generating feedback and hopefully recruiting some new faces to assist with trail maintenance.
**As with all of our rides, helmets are required and we also recommend knee and elbow pads.**

Information for all rides

*Helmets are always required for all rides.
*The parking lot is not the place to see if your bike needs work. Please arrive with a functional bike. *Inclement weather can cancel the ride.
*Sometimes rides are cancelled or changed at the last minute. It is highly recommended that you join the Blackstone Valley mailing list to receive the latest info and directions to the trailhead.

As always, we encourage our members to suggest places to ride. Contact Eammon Carleton with suggestions.

Please Note:

On occasion a ride will change without us having an opportunity to update this website. The information on our Facebook Page will be the most current. We also have some members leading rides that are not listed here but are posted there.
