Winter is still upon us but your NSMBA Board is busy preparing for a great season of riding on the Shore. We have a lot of great plans for the year and are confident that 2011 is going to be a great year for all of us who love trails.
Our 2011 schedule is shaping up and weâ€™re excited to have a great slate of events. Thereâ€™s still quite a few dates to be firmed up but the plan is coming together. As always, the success of these events is dependent on contributions from you, the riding community, both as volunteers and financially. If you ride, please plan to get involved in whatever way you can.
