      Massachusetts is a mountain bikers paradise There are mountain biking trails in virtually every corner of the state with trails suitable for absolute beginners to some of the gnarliest trails you will find anywhere on the planet. While New England is notorious for its technical riding, we also have some of the smoothest flow trails anywhere.

      If you want to find riding opportunities near you there are several ways to go abut it. First of course is to search Trailforks for local riding areas near you. The second alternative is to find your nearest NEMBA chapter. We have added links to all of NEMBA's websites below, where you can find your local chapter as well as contact details. The third option is to look for your nearest bike shop in the Trailforks directory and to chat to them about local riding opportunities.

      Also, what sets the mountain biking community in New England apart, is the fact that we have NEMBA with all of its local Chapters. NEMBA believes that mountain bikers care about the trails they ride—that's why we are a chapter-based organization. NEMBA has 29 chapters throughout New England, each offering a wide variety of rides, events and ways to give back to the trails. Join your local NEMBA chapter and become part of our community of mountain bikers!
