Coastal Mountains Land Trust has selected the Midcoast Chapter of the New England Mountain Biking as one of two recipients of the Connecting Nature & Community Award, which honors the individual or entity that has demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to engaging the people of our community with the outdoors and the lands protected by the Land Trust.

Since 2008, the group has partnered with the Land Trust on the construction, maintenance, and promotion of a growing network of mountain biking trails near the Camden Snow Bowl. An all-volunteer organization, members have been dedicating themselves to taking care of the places that they ride, preserving open space and educating the mountain bike community about the importance of responsible riding. McNEMBA members contribute significant volunteer trail stewardship efforts and sponsored a mile marker on the Round the Mountain Trail.
