Mountain Flyer Magazine and the New England Mountain Bike Association announce Flow2Fest powered by Küat, a week-long link up of two amazing mountain bike festivals coming this summer

Jeffersonville, VT. (FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE)Mountain Flyer Magazine, in partnership with the New England Mountain Bike Association (NEMBA) and  Küat Racks, is excited to announce Flow2Fest, a four-day adventure linking some of the most iconic trail networks in the Northeast starting at FLOW STATE, The Vermont Mountain Bike Festival in Ascutney, VT., and wrapping up at the New England Mountain Bike Festival in Carrabassett Valley, ME.

After FLOW STATE, July 29-31, Flow2Fest hits new trail networks over the next four days starting at Waterbury, VT., then heading to Craftsbury, Kingdom Trails, Franconia, NH., Gorham, Bethel, and finally, Saddleback Mountain before arriving at NEMBAfest August 5-7. It’s going to be an action-packed road trip you don’t want to miss!                

Here’s how it works: Printed passports will be handed out at the NEMBA tent all weekend during FLOW STATE. The next four days we’ll ride bikes, collect passport stamps, hang out with other likeminded riders and have a great time! Passports can be dropped off at NEMBAfest and participants will be entered to win prizes from Küat and other Flow2Fest partners.

“We encourage you to attend as many locations and events as you can throughout Flow2Fest,” says John Costello, events manager for Mountain Flyer. The majority of our socials start after each group ride has ended each day so there’s ample time to mingle and make new friends.”

“Flow2Fest is such a rad way to connect mountain bikers and our communities throughout New England,” adds NEMBA’s Rachel Gittens. “With NEMBAfest making its return this year, we see this as a great opportunity to experience both festivals and create your own adventure in between.”

Flow2Fest is a collaboration between NEMBA, Mountain Flyer, Küat, the Vermont Mountain Bike Association, FLOW STATE, NEMBAfest, Bike Borderlands and countless other local and bike industry partners.
