RI NEMBA DIY Adventure Ride 2021
Fundraiser Details:

Virtual Ride offers Rhode Island Mountain Bikers of all abilities
a chance to “laugh like a kid again”

Throughout Rhode Island

The Rhode Island chapter of the New England Mountain Bike Association (RI NEMBA) is sponsoring a virtual mountain bike fun ride May 1 to June 27. The outdoor and online event boasts a fun photo contest and raffle for all ages and abilities with the goal of increasing awareness of Rhode Island's many wonderful mountain bike trails, raising funds for the local food bank, and boosting NEMBA membership. Riders can choose from several routes per area ranging from easy family friendly routes to challenging technical routes. The event also seeks to highlight areas off the beaten paths: “Our goal is to help get people into areas they may never have gone or have been unsure of the trail network” says Co-organizer Christopher Flanagan. RI NEMBA member Melissa Soares adds, “The very best days I have had on a bicycle have been the days I have gotten lost in the woods. No particular time schedule or plan just taking a chance on a new trail. There are few times as an adult that we are able to fulfill an adventurous spirit. The feeling of being free and surrounded by nature, is truly one of life’s simple pleasures. This event will do just that, minus the getting lost part Let us show you the hidden treasures of Rhode Island mountain biking. We promise no matter your age, you will laugh like a kid again!”

Participation in the ride is $15 for existing members, and $25 to nonmembers. The ride has an open participation window beginning May 1 and ending June 27. To participate, go to the ride website www.rinemba.org/diy-adventure-ride-2021 and click on “Register”. Routes vary in length and difficulty from just a few miles to longer technical rides. Prizes will be awarded via a closing ceremony broadcast on Facebook Live on June 30th. Check out www.rinemba.org for more details.

We are dedicated to developing and maintaining access to sustainable, environmentally-friendly mountain bike trails, supporting our members, linking communities, supporting local businesses, and promoting the general health of our local population and the protection of open spaces.
