The New England Trail Rider Association (NETRA) promotes the sport of off-road motorcycling in the New England and New York region. With over 80 competition and recreational events annually, our 2500+ members and 25 member clubs provide and enjoy varied riding opportunities. NETRA is also active with legislators and land managers to preserve your right to ride.
The New England Trail Rider Association (NETRA) was formed in the early 1970’s for the purpose of promoting off-road trail riding in the New England area. The sport was in its infancy, and in cooperation with New England Trail Rider (now Trail Rider) Magazine, NETRA focused on identifying and communicating places to ride, bike set-up tips, and riding techniques suitable for the tough New England terrain.
A couple of years later NETRA entered the competition arena when we inherited the New England Enduro series from the New England Sports Committee (NESC) organization. NETRA has produced some top national enduro and ISDE riders like Don Cutler, George Peck, and Kevin Hines. In 1982 the NETRA Hare Scrambles series was born, and over time this series has become home to NETRA’s most well-attended events. This series has also produced some renowned national racers such as Tom Norton and Nate Kanney. NETRA believes in developing tomorrow’s riders, and the Junior Enduro and Pee Wee series provide an opportunity for kids to have fun and improve their riding skills.
On the recreation front, NETRA has long offered a range of organized trail rides known as turkey or poker runs. In recent years the dual sport phenomenon has added several of these more big bike-friendly rides to the schedule. All of NETRA’s recreation rides are a great chance to enjoy an arrowed or route-sheeted ride with friends through some great terrain. Several of the turkey runs are affiliated with local and national charities, and give back to the local communities we ride in.
NETRA’s member clubs have been integral to its success since the beginning. Our clubs and their volunteer work force create and maintain trail systems, organize and work the events, represent NETRA on legislative and land use forums, and serve on the NETRA Board of Directors and related committees.
