MTB Ben headed to Cape Cod to attend the 2019 NEMBA Ride & Advocacy Summit. He spent a lot of time learning, talking, and hanging with a great group of New England mountain bikers.
In this episode, MTB Ben is joined by Matt Caron and Sarah Thompson. Matt is the Vice President of NEMBA (New England Mountain Bike Association) and President of the Southern New Hampshire NEMBA Chapter and Sarah is involved with the Franconia Area NEMBA. They discuss the Summit, their chapters and what they learned. Matt and Sarah share their thoughts on continual improvement within their chapters, how to keep people engaged, and using what they’ve learned at the NEMBA Summit to take that back to their members and users.
NEMBA is a recreational trails advocacy organization and educational 501 (c) 3 non-profit with 27 chapters throughout New England and over 7,000 members. Their mission is to promote the best that mountain biking has to offer, steward the trail systems where we recreate and preserve open space.
