There is no fee for this event thanks in part to our partners at Public Lands. Participants have the option to make a $20 lunch donation and/or to donate In Memory of Philip Keyes. We are working on options for a legacy-level project to memorialize Philip for both NEMBA and the larger mountain biking community. Your contribution will be designated to support this forthcoming legacy project and mountain bike advocacy, trails,  grants, and education efforts close to Philip's heart.  

What to expect:

A warm community celebration with fond memories, epic riding, delicious food, and good vibes - just the way Philip would like it!


Lunch by Redbones is included for all registered participants regardless of donation status. Pick up your lunch ticket at registration under the NEMBA tent.

Tee Shirts

Pick up any pre-purchase tee shirts, or purchase a tee shirt at the NEMBA tent.


Parking is available at the Ski Touring Center Lot, 1018 Lowell Street, Carlisle, MA 01741. Overflow parking available in the paid parking lot on North Road, HM42+WF, Carlisle, MA 01741
