DERBY — On Wednesday, members of the NCUHS Mountain Bike Club were found working after school on the Memphremagog Ski Touring Foundation (MSTF) trails, located on the Primeau property in Derby.

Their task was to clean out culverts found along the double track/ski paths, as the winter ski season is fast approaching. The club is wrapping up their biking season soon, having met every day after school from Monday through Thursday, since September 2.

There have been a total of 14 different riders to date, and the members simply come on the days that work for them. The club is open for all NCUHS students, faculty, and staff who enjoy being on a bike and getting outside.

They have taken advantage of the miles of single and double track available throughout the MSTF trail system, and encourage everyone who enjoys the outdoors to go and check out this incredible network of walking, hiking, running, biking, and skiing trails.

For more info you can visit the MSTF webpage at http://skivermont.com/memphremagog-ski-touring-foundation.html.

The group wanted to thank Bob and Ellie Primeau for giving them permission to use their wonderful trail system, Jeff Manning from the Village Bike Shop in Derby for providing tech support, and Principal Bill Rivard and the NCUHS School Board for allowing the Bike Club to become a reality.
