The New England Mountain Bike Association is a community of mountain bikers committed to creating epic riding experiences, preserving open space, and guiding the future of mountain biking in New England.
What began as a group of friends and riding enthusiasts giving testimony at a 1987 meeting of the Massachusetts Metropolitan District Commission is now a recreational trails advocacy organization with 27 chapters and over five thousand members throughout the six state region. We lead nearly a thousand mountain bike rides a season, put on various skills clinics and trail building schools, and advocate for mountain biking and recreational trails. We put on hundreds of trail building and maintenance events in scores of parks in the region, donating over 8,000 volunteer hours in the process. We work with key leaders and land managers to protect our sport and allow our members to give back to the trails and to the sport they love.
The original Connecticut Chapter was founded in 1996. Due to the tremendous growth of, and interest in, mountain biking, there are now five chapters in the state. The north central and south central regions of Connecticut are served by the Central Connecticut Chapter.
Central Connecticut NEMBA serves the north central and south central areas of Connecticut. The state is also served by the Fairfield County, Northwest Connecticut, Quiet Corner, and Southeastern Connecticut Chapters. NEMBA's remaining twenty-two chapters serve the other New England states.
Trail maintenance and development work
sessions occur throughout the year. In
cooperation with land managers including Connecticut’s Department of
Energy and Environmental Protection, chapter volunteers have built miles of
trails enjoyed by all users of the resource. Recent local projects include the extensive trail network at
Rockland Preserve in Madison, and, working with volunteers from Thule in
Seymour, the trails of the Quillinan Reservoir block of the Naugatuck State
