NEMBA (New England Mountain Bike Association) is a recreational trails advocacy organization with 34 chapters throughout New England and has over 10,000 members.  Our local chapter currently has over 200 members.  Our mission is to promote the best that mountain biking has to offer, steward the trail systems where we recreate and preserve open space.  We are an educational 501 (c) 3 non-profit.  We lead nearly a thousand mountain bike rides a season, put on various skills clinics and trail building schools, and advocate for mountain biking and recreational trails.  We put on hundreds of trail-building and maintenance events in scores of parks in the region and donate over 10,000 hours of volunteerism to local parks.  We work with key leaders and land managers to protect our sport and allow our members to give back to the trails and to the sport they love.

Our Cape Cod Chapter leadership team consists of Frank Merola as President, and Lev Malakhoff and Dave Lafreniere as Vice-Presidents.  Our secretary is Karen Zunti and our Treasurer is Rich Higgins.  Wendy Higgins and Terry Downey are our Community Liasons. Our team and our membership strive to be seen as partners in responsible use of our precious natural areas.
