RINEMBA Diamond Hill Fun Ride

Date and time:


Registration/Check In: 9:00AM

Arrows Down: 1:00 PM


Diamond Hill Park

4125 Diamond Hill Road

Cumberland, RI

Participant cap/limit: 75 total attendees


NEMBA Family Memberships – $15.00

NEMBA Individual Memberships – $15.00

Non-Members – $25.00


It's been a long while since we’ve held an event at Diamond Hill and the trails there have just gotten better since.

The name says Fun Ride but, for NEMBA, this is a VERY wild ride.

Sorry no beginner loops for this event.

The skill level is high and so is the excitement. Pads not mandatory but highly suggested.

Due to current permit restrictions, we have a HARD LIMIT of 75 participants so online pre-registration will be MANDATORY. There will be no onsite registration.

Please check in with us at the NEMBA tent and you will be provided with an event wristband. Wristbands need to be worn throughout your ride.

May is hunting season in RI so 200 square inches of Blaze Orange will be REQUIRED to participate.

2 arrowed loops to be combined as you see fit:

Intermediate/Advanced XC: 6-9 Miles of one of the rowdiest cross country loops in the North East. The drops, rollers, and granite slabs never stop, so you'll have plenty to play on. Many features are optional with a go around but some may require you to walk if you are not comfortable. Two bail out points give you the option to shorten the loop down to 6 miles if desired.

Expert Enduro “Stage” Loops: 4 of RI’s wildest downhill trails linked together in a continuous loop with 230’ of climbing in between each run. Mandatory steep terrain, drops, large rollers, and technical sections. Only 5 miles but you’ll work for every inch. These are Double Black Diamond trails and are for experts only please.

All attendees MUST sign the NEMBA Annual Liability Waiver if they haven't already done so.


Individual NEMBA members can register for $15 (Must register with the email address that your active individual membership is attached to) Guests would be at the non-member rate.

Family NEMBA members can register those that are 13 yrs and older for $15 per person. (Must register with the email address that your active family membership is attached to)

Non-NEMBA members can register for $25 per person or join/renew NEMBA prior to registering for the event to receive the discounted rate.

Any questions regarding your membership status or if you don't know which email address your account is associated with can be directed to

   Register Here.

Food: There will be no food available at this event other than small snacks at the water stop. Please plan accordingly.

Alcohol: The town of Cumberland does not allow open containers of alcohol on the property for this event.

Ravenous Brewery is 5 min down the road with some great options.

We'll be meeting up on the Ski Hill side of Diamond Hill at 9AM and having an orientation and making sure everyone signed the waiver.

RI NEMBA Beginner MTB Clinics

Event Date

     RINEMBA Beginner Mountain Bike Clinic

Ever wonder what it is exactly that allows you to get over that log or rock on the trail?

Want to have a better understanding of what it is you are doing on the bike, instead of thrashing about and hoping you clean that section of trail?

At the Rhode Island NEMBA beginner clinic you can achieve all that and more.

The event will be broken up into three successive Sundays at beautiful Grills Preserve in Westerly RI.

We ask that you try to attend all three events.

This event is limited to only 20 attendants so please do your best to attend if you sign up.

We would not want to hold your spot and have someone else miss out if you don’t make it.

   To sign up.  Go here!

Day one 3/27, 9am-noon: Day one will be focused on bike set up and bike maintenance to keep your steed running tip top for optimum fun! We will be going over emergency trailside repairs and basic bike set up. Learning how to fix a flat on a trail and keep your chain lubed are two of several basic skills we’ll go over. Please bring your bike to work on. If time allows we’ll do a short ride after class. 

Day two 4/3, 9am-noon: On day two, we will dive into body position on the bike and how to balance your weight on the bike. Definitely bring your bike and helmet, because we’ll be riding. 

Day three 4/10, 9am-noon: On the third day we will cover how to make your bike’s components work better for you on the trail (shifting, braking and dropper seatposts). Again this will be a riding class, so bike and helmet are required.
