The Central Maine chapter of NEMBA (CeMeNEMBA) is a dedicated, enthusiastic group making a difference for locals and folks from away who enjoy mountain biking on the growing network of trails in Central Maine. Our mission is to “Build it, Bike it” for trail lovers like yourself!
In addition to our ongoing work in the Augusta – Hallowell area, our recent efforts have focused on trail projects at the Pine Ridge Recreation Area in Waterville and advocating for mountain bikers at the new Androscoggin Riverlands State Park in Turner.
During the Summer of 2011 we worked on new mountain biking trails at the Quarry Road in Waterville and an off-road trail system within Waterville city limits linking Pine Ridge and Quarry Road.
The primary focus of 2012 was to increase the milage of the above mentioned systems as well as working to maintain and improve the existing trails.
In October of 2012 we joined with Augusta Trails in hosting the 1st Annual Tread Fest Event (Mtn. Bike & Trail Running) at the Bond Brook trail system in Augusta. The event was a big success with a ton of positive feedback form all who volunteered and the participants as well. The 2nd Annual Tread Fest will be held on October 20th, 2013.
We need your help to continue our efforts. You can support our local trail efforts in a number of ways:
- Renew your CeMeNEMBA membership or if you’re not a member, please join us today
- Make a tax-deductible contribution
- Help us fill our wish list by donating items such as a GPS system, hand tools, leaf blowers, or even an enclosed trailer if you happen to have a spare!
