The festival is truly an amazing event and at an even more incredibly beautiful setting in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.  The views alone are worth the journey.  And whether you are an experienced mt biker or a never-ever there is something for everybody.  There are guided rides, clinics and demonstrations for beginners to get started on how to ride, how to clean and take care of your bike; guided rides and clinics for intermediates; and guided rides for hard core experts.  There are even guided family rides, children's rides, inter-mellow rides, obstacle courses, pump tracks, and much more.

There will be free demo bikes from a plethora of vendors (ever ride a $10,000 bike), including fat tire bikes, electric mt bikes, and all the newest rides!  Food trucks, stunt shows, live music, beer garden, games, events, raffles.....it truly is a celebration of all things mountain biking.

  • Is this for singles or couples?

    Both.  Most of the people on all of our trips are single, but we do get couples as well and all are welcome.   Some come with a friend or two, or even a small group, and MANY come solo.  That is why our trips work.   They are great for everybody.  You will meet many new friends whether coming alone, with a friend, or even a significant other.

  • Can I go solo?

    Of course!  Many of or travelers go solo, that is why our trips work!  We match roommates so you do not have to pay a single room supplement, and it’s an instant friend.    If you want to meet new people, make new friends, going solo is a great way to go.  We don’t make you do anything, but if you want to meet and hang with others, it is there for you.  If you want to do your own thing, that is okay as well.

  • What is the age range?

    NEMBAfest varies greatly.  It is even family friendly.  BSSC trips on average usually vary in the 21-45 age range.  You will see some younger, some older, but the majority will be in the 21-45 range.

  • Are children welcome?

    For NEMBAfest, yes!  All ages are welcome.  The event is very family friendly with guided rides for all levels and ages, and plenty of things to do for everybody.   If under 18 must be accompanied by a parent.

  • Hotel sleeping arrangements?

    We are staying in hotel studio-2 bedroom suites.  If going solo, we will match you with a same gender, same age (close as possible), smoker/non-smoker roommate in a standard hotel studio.  Think typical hotel room with two beds, and it has a kitchenette.    We do not match opposite genders, unless requested by both people.  OR, of course, you may request to be matched up with a friend or significant other as you wish, of any gender.  You may also choose to pay for a single room at an extra cost.  
    If going with friends, or family, there are options for Deluxe Studios, 1 bedroom, and 2 bedroom suites.  See Trip Details for pricing.

  • Will there be people to ride and hang out with?

    Yes!  Trip leader will arrange daily times to get  together, to meet for après ride, for the hot tub, for dinner, nightlife, etc.  You do not have to do all or any, we don’t make anybody do anything, but if you want company, it will be there.  You can pick and chose where to meet up with group as well.

  • Is there carpooling?

    We will do our best to hook you up with others who would like to carpool.  We will share emails of those interested in needing rides or can take riders and you can reach out to them and arrange carpooling. We cannot guarantee you will find a ride if you do not have a car, but we will try our best.   We can share your email before signing up for the trip.

  • Do I need to have a mt bike?

    While it is a good idea to have you own for longer rides, you do not really need to.  The bike vendors all supply free demo bikes for you to try.  You cannot take a demo bike for the day but there are enough vendors, and trails to try them on, to keep you busy all day!  And if you chose to ride Burke on Sunday, they offer rentals for the day.

  • Do I need to know how to Mt bike?

    No, it is not necessary.  There will be clinics and rides geared to beginners so it is also a great place to learn!
