RI NEMBA Beginner MTB Clinics

Event Date

Repeats every week every Sunday 3 times .
3/27/22 9:00am

     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!

For More info or questions contact

All attendees MUST sign the NEMBA Annual Liability Waiver 

Dates:

March 27th, 9am-noon

April 3rd; 9am-noon

April 10th; 9am-noon

Location:

Grills Preserve

198 Bowling Ln, Bradford, RI 02808

Fee:

This event is free to all whether you are a member or not. 

Participant cap/limit: 20 attendees

Details:

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.

RI NEMBA Trail Day @ Arcadia Management Area

Date

10/23/21 9:00am

Rhode Island NEMBA Trail Day

PARTICIPANTS MUST PREREGISTER WITH ALAN at

RINEMBA, along with other user groups, has been asked by DEM to join a trail cleanup day in Arcadia on Saturday, 10/23/21.

This effort will remove blockages from recent storms, etc.

We'll break into small groups and work on trails or areas as directed by DEM.

Since we could be on bikes, I've asked that we be sent into the less-accessible areas.

We will be permitted to use chainsaws for this event; NEMBA will provide the required insurance.
Some within DEM are aware that we do a lot of trail cleanup independently (thank you everyone); this will be a great opportunity to show all of DEM what we can do, and I hope to get a large turnout.

      If you're able to lend a hand, please email me and include:
- Do you prefer to ride or walk
- Have you taken first aid training
- Have you taken chainsaw safety training
- Do you have a chainsaw and safety equipment and can you carry it all safely if you're riding
- Do you have a handsaw (of course you do)
I'll try to split us into appropriate groups (e.g. a sawyer a medic and several laborers; or a few folks with handsaws and fast bikes).

Let me know soon, please, and include a phone number.

This event is open to member and nonmembers alike. All participant need to have completed the NEMBA general waiver (once a year) found here: nemba.org/waiver

RI NEMBA Arcadia Fun Ride

Date

9/18/21 9:00am to 2:00pm

Arcadia Fun Ride

It’s been too long since the last RI Fun ride so please join us at Arcadia Management Area for marked courses through some of the best areas of the park. Due to current permit restrictions, we have a HARD LIMIT of 75 participants so online preregistration will be MANDATORY. There will be no onsite registration. 

   Click this link to Register.   https://member.nemba.org/event-4474423

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. 

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

We’ll have 3 loops that can be combined as you like with a water/snack stop in the middle.

“Advanced Beginner” 7 mile loop around Breakheart Pond and through the flower fields of Midway. Riders should prepare for some roots and rocks but only about 400’ of climbing and mostly mellow terrain.

Two “Intermediate Loops”

-A classic backcountry experience up Breakheart Hill following and crossing wild streams and old campsites into the deepest parts of RI forests. Yielding 8 miles and about 900’ of climbing!

-As a second option a rowdier “enduro” style route up and down the reclaimed trails of Mt Tom with open views of the Arcadia valley and steep fast descents. This one should get you around 9 miles and 1000’ of climbing but you’ll probably remember the downhills more!

“Advanced” loop will be the whole enchilada, backcountry and enduro at about 17 miles and almost 1600’ of climbing/descent. Expert line options will be marked for the adventurous.

REGISTRATION TYPES:

Individual NEMBA members can register for $10 (Must register with the email address that your active individual membership is attached to) Guests would be at the non-member 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 membership@nemba.org .

Please don’t forget to sign the NEMBA waiver if you have not already done so this year.

RAIN DATE: THERE WILL BE NO RAIN DATE THIS YEAR.

Arcadia Management Area (Division of Forest Environment): At over 14,000 mostly forested acres, the Arcadia Management Area is the state’s largest recreational area, offering users a great variety of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Co-managed by DEM’s Divisions of Forest Environment and Fish & Wildlife, it is promoted as, and actively managed for hunting, as well as fishing, boating, hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding, to name a few activities. “Multiple use” management principles apply, assuring a safe and satisfying experience for hunters and non-hunters alike. Miles upon miles of gravel roads and well-marked and maintained trails entice hikers to return to a different section each visit. These same trails are often used by mountain bikers or horseback riders so all users need to act responsibly, show courtesy, and “share the road”.

Description

Ryan Park is located in North Kingston RI. AT 350 acres there are over 11 miles of mostly easy trails to enjoy.

This is a great place for newer riders and kids as it's almost devoid of the rocks and roots of typical RI trails.That's because the park is built on an abandoned dump. Though you'd never know it when you're there.

The trail around Bellview Pond is especially scenic.
