A big thanks to everyone who was able to make it out to the Broken Ground trail day yesterday! Despite the less than optimal conditions, 22 volunteers showed up and built 1.1 miles of trail in less than 4 hours.

The only thing left to do before we can officially open it is install the plank bridges in the wet areas (which were very easy to find yesterday). If the weather holds we will have an additional mini trail day to get the bridge lumber moved and installed. Stay tuned.

Come join the Central New Hampshire Chapter of NEMBA on Saturday November 3rd at 9 AM to help build a new mountain bike trail on the City’s Broken Ground property right in Concord. We will meet just past the Portsmouth Street kiosk on the access road to the water tower. 

(located here: 43.228604, -71.495165).  

When finished, the new trail will be over 1.25 miles long, so we have our work cut out for us. The trail bed will be laid out, but we’ll still need to rake the trail bed as well as bench and berm a few sections.  We’ll have fire rakes, Rogue Hoes, shovels, and other trail building tools, but we can always use more leaf rakes, spade shovels, and of course volunteers who like to get dirty.

After we finish up between 12 and 1 we’ll be hosting a cookout to help thank you for your hard work.  Feel free to bring your bikes to try out the new trail.

If you have any questions, call or text Matt Bowser @603-491-5448

Hope to see you there.
