White Mountains NEMBA Monday Ride

Co-Sponsored by Gorham Bike & Ski

Contact Sara @  sthomson13@gmail.com or Gorham Bike & Ski for more information.

These rides are for all levels of riders. We will always divide up into groups.

If enough women show up and want a separate group ride we'll do that too.

These rides are not races and our goal will always be to finish with more smiles than miles.

It's always a no-drop ride and we welcome newer riders.

Hope to ride with you soon.   :-)

   Oh!   Be sure to sign NEMBA's ride waiver.  But you only have to sign it once.

Below is a report on ride #2.

        Information on this week's ride will always be on the cited Facebook page.

The community SHOWED UP last night for group ride #2 in the Valley.⁠

We saw a turnout of first-timers, intermediate, and pretty darn experienced riders. We're stoked to see who joins us next time!

Interested in joining us but not sure if you can keep up? Don't worry. We'll work with you to decide your comfort & skill level, then split up into different rides to accommodate your needs.

Shoutout to our North Conway Store Manager, Sara, for leading the ride, and to the several riders who stepped up & helped out.

Franconia Area Trail Grooming

Thursday, February 18, 2021

 

May be an image of nature, snow and ski slope

Traditionally most winter riding was done on packed snowmobile trails. But more recently NEMBA chapters and others have been grooming trails specifically for fat biking.

Many of us have spent uncounted hours trudging through the woods on snowshoes, packing down the tracks. And then, after exhaustion subsides, we return to ride them.

Several NEMBA chapters have invested in snowdogs while others drag some kind of a weighted sled behind a snowmobile.

But Franconia Area NEMBA and Bob Lesmerises have come up with some innovative ways to groom their trails for fat biking.

May be an image of bicycle and outdoors

The most interesting of these is dragging a sled using an e-Fat Bike. The bike is a KHS Enduro 1000 which has 14 power settings that can apply just the right amoint of power to get through the trails. The sled which weighs 25 pounds can also be loaded with more when appropriate.

But that’s not all.  FA NEMBA members also use snowshoes and Drift Boards. Drift boards are sort of a cross between skies and a snowboard.

                          No photo description available.

Bob has been grooming trails near the Franconia Inn for 2 years now. Normally he maintains about 10 miles of trails. But when conditions allow that sometimes expands to 15. There is no charge for riding on these trails.

Especially if you stop every once in a while to make snow angels.

     May be an image of bicycle and nature

So far this winter the Franconia area has had a lot of snow, a lot of frequent snow.

Bob estimates that he’s done over 350 miles of grooming so far this season.

He’s usually out very early in the morning so that the trails will have a chance to “set” before they get used.

Once-and-only-once this year so far magic happened. A thaw followed by a freeze turned the snow’s surface into something resembling Styrofoam. No grooming was needed. No trails were needed. You just rode anywhere you wanted. You could even run on top of the snow.

Nearby PRKR Mountain in Littleton. Also grooms Trails. But they favor a snowdog as theirs is much more hilly terrain.

While other FA NEMBA members use a Rokon.  Which is a two wheel drive motorcycle.

If you’re north of the notch this winter, Franconia Area NEMBA invites you to stop for a while and enjoy the trails.

Oh! But be sure to come back when the snow season is over. There’s a lot of riding in the Franconia NEMBA area.

Franconia Area Trail Collaborations

Wednesday, December 12, 2018

Borderlands: A collaboration of emerging and established mountain biking destinations in the area north of the New Hampshire Notches including adjacent Vermont and Maine have been working to establish a coordinated set of riding destinations for visitors to northern New England. Founding institutions include Franconia Area NEMBA and Parker Mountain as well as Kingdom Trails, Circuite Frontieres in East Hereford Quebec, Coos Cycling/Hub North in Gorham NH and Mahoosuc Trails in Bethel Maine and the effort is being coordinated by the Northern Forest Center (link) with a goal of leveraging the MTB cycling as an economic driver of the north country. The brand of “Borderlands” has been chosen to label this collaborative and folks should expect the Borderlands to roll out in the Spring of 1919.

Trail Grants and projects: A collaboration of community leaders and local organizations including FA-NEMBA, The Friends of Profile Trails, Lafayette Recreation, Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country, Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust, and The Profile School have been working to formalize the trail networks in the Franconia, Sugar Hill and Easton Valleys and also to link them to our our adjoin communities of Bethlehem and Littleton. Grant funding has been received through the Mountain Bike Collabroative, the NH Department Education, The Recreational Trail Program, and private donors and work to improve the trails is in progress. A big project seeks to link Franconia Village to Profile School and on to Bethlehem Village as a keynote addition to the emerging Profile Trails network.

New Eateries in the Franconia Village: 2018 saw establishment of several new eateries in the Franconia Village. At the west end of town the Iron Furnace Brewery has been launched. It is at a popular location just down the street from the start of the new Art trail adjacent to the iconic stone furnace viewing area on west main street by route 117. At its launch it is operating on weekends limited by the capacity of the brew master, but expansion is anticipated soon. In the heart of town, the hungry bear café has just opened offering both breakfast and lunch offerings with a good variety of choices and at the East end of town on the Cannon Mountain at the junction of 142 Plain Kates Saloon is a popular new location for dinner and drinks. These compliment Dutch Treat and Chef Joe’s as well as the restaurants and pubs that can be found at our many regional classic England inns Read more about [node:title]
