Massachusetts, a state known for its rich history and cultural heritage, is also a mountain biker’s dream. With a vast network of trails meandering through shared state parks and private-public collaborative projects, the Bay State delivers a biking experience locals will say is second to none.
Subjective? Sure thing!
A major player in this thriving scene is the New England Mountain Bike Association (NEMBA) and its regional chapter such as Blackstone Valley NEMBA. These dedicated groups are all about preserving and promoting trails across New England, making sure the region stays a top-notch spot for riders.
From technical rocks at Vietnam Trails in Milford to the smooth cruising trails at Abram’s Rock in Swansea, there’s something for every rider. One of the best parts about mountain biking in Massachusetts is that, unless you’re seeking a lift-access experience (which there is some) — getting onto the trails is often free or low cost. For local trail recommendations, NEMBA’s website offers a comprehensive list via Trailforks.com, and many NEMBA chapters and local bike shops offer group rides at popular trail systems. The New England Ski Journal (ironic?) has a pretty good list of the “must hit” destinations such as “The Fells,” “Vietnam,” and lift access via “Thunder Mountain.” Read more from Jes Slavin’s Massachusetts mountain biking: 5 must-ride spots.
In celebration of the unique biking culture of Massachusetts, we’ve teamed up with the local mountain bike lifestyle brand, MTBMA, to create the Yew! MTB Laps Sticker. This top-notch holographic vinyl sticker is more than just a tribute to the trails and riders of Massachusetts. It also gives a nostalgic nod to the popular 80s and early 90s programming on MTV, “Yo! MTV Raps.” The Yew! MTB Laps Sticker is a wicked good way to showcase your love for the sport and the Massachusetts trails. It’s a piece of the trail you can take with you, wherever you go.
Gear up, hit the trails, and leave your mark.
