Next Meetup

Kingdom Trails NembaFest
Hey Peeps, A couple of us are planning to head up to Kingdom Trails for NembaFest July 22-24th. So I thought I'd post a meetup for other people that might be interested. I've been to Kingdom a few times and its a great place to ride. Not technical, but great fast flowy trails in a gorgeous location wit spectacular mountain views in rural Vermont. I actually think this is a good place for beginners or intermediate riders because the trails are so well manicured and they have many services & people around to help. If you're an advanced rider that really prefers technical rocky/rooty stuff you might find Kingdom a little boring, but they do have some very steep and fast trails that are challenging too. The town of East Bruke is like a ski resort for Mountain Biking, its quite a hike from NYC to get up there (5+hrs without traffic?) so be prepared for a long zipcar ride. Here's some links with more info: http://www.nembafest.com/ http://kingdomtrails.org/calendar/nembafest-annual/ I've never been to Nembafest at Kingdom, but it should be pretty fun although likely very crowded so be prepared for longer lines and crowded trails. You'll also want to sort out your accommodations soon, there is camping which sounds like a fun option, but consider if you're ok with camping if we get bad weather. So let me know if you're going and we'll hook up while we're there. If the weather is good its an amazing way to spend a summer weekend. -Peter

What we're about

NYCMB is for anyone that shares a passion for mountain biking and trail riding. We are a fully volunteer/no charge/no profit like minded group of people who simply gather to share experiences, discover and explore all the wonderful bike trails in our area that nature has to offer and of course, make new friends.

We try to plan different events for all levels of riders, so you don't have to be a downhill racer to be a part of this group. But we do have some pretty strong riders that definitely will make sure you have a great workout if that's what you're after.

We ride as a group to enjoy the event together so no one gets left too far behind and no one is pushed beyond their comfort level.

>>>We ride through woods on fairly rugged terrain so a true "fat tire" mountain bike, preferably with front suspension, is required. A Hybrid bike will not be enough for most of the places we ride.<<<

If someone is tired and can't keep up, they won't be left alone. If someone has a problem with their bike, they'll usually have 3 or 4 other riders vying to help fix it. If someone's hurt, they and their bike will be helped back to the trailhead and home if needed.

No doubt you'll find that mountain bikers are the best kinda people.

Are you what we consider a Beginner, Intermediate or an Advanced rider?
