    The Story of the Barre Awesome Trails

    The Barre (rhymes with “very”) trails are a huge success story: shut out of trails on state lands, mountain bikers approached local private landowners and the town for permission to build and ride singletrack. 

    The result is over 25 miles (and counting!) of trail across a dozen landowners, and it’ll all be open for this event. We will be celebrating the landowners and volunteers who made it possible and opening it all up for you with local businesses helping make the event a success.

    Be aware that these trails have a fair amount of challenge, we will do our best to lay out beginner/intermediate-friendly options but there will be rocks, roots, and wall crossings like most places in the hills of Central Mass. A-lines will have bypasses where possible. Don’t be alarmed, we just want to be up front.


     8:00 am. Registration open

          Self-guided loops

          Local food vendors

          Local brewery vendors

          Advanced, beginner, and intermediate led rides

          Kids events and ride


    You must sign the NEMBA Waiver to participate in the event.
