It’s May, and we’re starting our weekly group rides. Look for other NMBA members Thursdays just before 6pm in the Galbraith Gap parking lot just past the base of Tussey Ski Resort in Rothrock State Forest. Check out our calendar for more details, and we’ll see you on the trails!
Funds raised by NMBA during the Centre Gives event will go towards the maintenance, design, and development of trail in Rothrock State Forest. Existing trail needs to be maintained on a continual basis to keep the trail clear from debris and overgrowth. Proposed new trail projects include the development of network trail in the Musser Gap area and the Whipple Dam area. If you enjoy utilizing the multi-use trail system in Rothrock State Forest, and want to see it grow, please consider making a donation to NMBA on May 9th – 10th!
Donations made by business in the amount of $250 or more during the Centre Gives event will guarantee logo placement for the business on the back of the 2017 NMBA T-Shirt! Donate during Centre Gives on May 9th – 10th and be seen!
NMBA recommends that individuals who need to renew their membership do so during the Centre Gives event – simply click on the donation link (when available) and donate $30 to fulfill your membership dues. Centre Gives provides a match of funds so the more that is donated to NMBA during Centre Gives, the greater the match for NMBA!
Happy Spring! The weather’s starting to get warmer, and you’re starting to think about riding your bike for the year again…. So isn’t it time to renew your NMBA membership too? Can’t wait to see you on the trails this spring, summer, and fall! Jump on over to our Join page, and send in your renewal through PayPal or mail it to us!
The Thursday beginner ride is no more. But it’s been replaced by a new and better all-levels ride on Wednesdays! Come one, come all! There will be multiple rides for multiple levels, and all will be no-drop rides. Come out to meet other seasoned riders, or to be shown the ropes as a beginner. Whether it’s your first time on a mountain bike, or you’ve been riding for years, we hope to see you there! Starting April 6, 2016, find us in the Galbraith Gap lot. Rides leave the lot at 6pm.
Feeling in the Christmas spirit? What better way to celebrate the season than by giving a bike to someone in need this year!
