Join Merrimack Valley NEMBA for a fun day of riding just west of Boston.
Great Brook has become a popular site for area cyclists. For over a decade, NEMBA has been working with park staff to create a wonderful assortment of trails for beginners and experts alike. So whether it's cruising along gently wooded cartpaths or negotiating the technical rocky descents of Stone Row, there is something for everyone.
New for 2013 - there will be an arrowed loop at Russell Mill!
