      The Blackstone Valley Region stretches from the Connecticut border in the South to Northborough in the North, and from Worcester in the West to Natick in the East. There are a large number of riding areas in the Region including Callahan State Forest and Mt Pisgah in the North, Douglas State Forest and Mendon Town Forest in the South, Hodges Village Dam in the West and the Vietnam Trail Network, West Hill Dam and Goat Hill in the East. It also includes a number of other riding areas in the towns of Millbury, Westborough, Grafton, Upton, Sutton, Northbridge, Holliston, Ashland and Hopkinton.

      The mission of Blackstone Valley NEMBA is to promote sustainable mountain biking in the Region and to organize a variety of fun rides and events for our members.

      We work with land managers and perform trail maintenance to increase the quantity and quality of terrain available to bicycles. Vietnam is one of our key riding areas, but we all offer a weekly rides on various trails in the area, so come join us.
