This group was formed to coordinate weekly mountain bike rides for all ability levels. Some of us go fast, some of us don't. Some of us race, some of us won't. We just want to have fun in the woods on our mountain bikes. Helmets are required for all group rides. Finally, please be courteous when riding, ride on open trails only and always yield to pedestrians and equestrians.
The area surrounding Portland, Maine is situated near many excellent mountain biking trails and potential future opportunities. Some of these trails are highly developed and protected for future user groups while others are simply rogue paths cut in the land by area riders. The city of Portland is home to approximately 64,000 people while the surrounding areas include around 230,000 residents. Many of these people enjoy being outside as often as possible, and a great deal are cyclists. Currently, there is no unified group representing the interests of, and channeling the energy, of the local mountain bike community. An impressive number of people in the area have come out of the woodwork expressing interest in supporting and being involved with a local NEMBA chapter. The community appears to have sufficient interest in the group and a great deal of energy ready to be focused towards maintaining and improving the trails networks we are so fortunate to have around town.
