Shimano / RI NEMBA Spring Cleaning

Westerly Municipal Land Trust Trail Project:

Area VP and Lead Trail Builders Needed.
As most already know, RI NEMBA has been asked to build a trail system in Westerly on 500 acres of town land abutting Woody Hill Management Area. RI NEMBA is actively seeking experienced trail designers and builders to take on lead roles for this project. Due to it's location, it's unrealistic for our current group of trail builders to get down to Westerly on a regular basis so we're hoping there are folks in the area looking to take on this project. Please note that this isn't a call out for build day volunteers but a request for lead trail builders/designers and a RI NEMBA area VP for this trail system. If you're interested, please email our chapter president at JSumner13@yahoo.com for more information. Thanks!

RI Community Food Bank 2015 Friend Award

Congratulations to our Chapter!

The Rhode Island Community Food Bank has presented the RI Chapter of the New England Mountain Bike Association with the 2015 Friend Award. Last year the Lincoln Woods Fun Ride collected 1,059 pounds of food before the Thanksgiving holiday and that was all made possible from donations from our chapter and other local mountain bikers. Over the past 10 years many people have organized the fun ride and kept the tradition of giving back to the community going. The rough estimate is that over 5 thousand pounds of food and numerous cash donations have been made to the food bank.

Thank you to everyone that that has contributed in any way, and be on the lookout for this years Fun Ride to help our chapter continue the support our community.
