We are going to start hosting weekly beginner level mountain bike rides on Monday April 14th. We will meet at 6:00 PM at Chapman Dam in the sled riding hill parking lot. These rides will be open to all riders but they will be dirt road rides paced for beginners. The speed and distance will be tailored to the ability of the group. NAMBA's 1st rule is no riders left behind.

What's Happening:

3/22/15   NAMBA's Spring Meeting will be at the TAWC building In Warren at 6:00 PM. Riding and trail building season is almost here! Lots to discuss.
