We're going to host this year's RI NEMBA Fun Ride to benefit the RI Food Bank on Sunday, November 27th (rain date 12/4). This will be an arrowed 10 + mile ride featuring most of the myriad of trails in Lincoln Woods. As always there will be some longer climbs that pay off with some fun descents and plenty of technical rock features to go around. We're including many of the more technical trails this year.
Also, please note that there will be a "climb and descend" led ride that will hit some of the gravity oriented lines that are NOT going to be a part of the arrowed loop as well (time/details to follow).
The cost of admission is some canned goods/non perishable foods. If you can't make the ride feel free to swing by the shop with some food! We'll be collecting all month to add to the pile at the ride itself.
Registration opens at 9:00 and runs until 11:00. Arrows will start to come down ~ 3:00. Directions are simple, find Lincoln Woods State Park on the map of your choice (digital or otherwise) and enter via the Twin River Road entrance. Take a right and follow the signs to the double parking lot on your left. Easy.
Post ride hang out and enjoy Stacy's mostly world famous chili, beverages and snacky cakes. Mike may even make corn muffins infused with bacon - yeah, bacon. Who could ask for more?
Hopefully the weather is as nice as it was this past Sunday at Bluff Point in CT. Here's Mike's Ibis Mojo HD relaxing on the beach...

We are getting reports that barrels are up blocking the East Bay Bike Path and cyclists are being told to turn around if they ride past them. The sewer project has officially started on the bike path.
Unfortunately, it appears that East Providence is concurrently ripping up the portion of Veteran’s Parkway near where the end of the pipe will come out. They have the road closed down to a single lane, just wide enough for cars to pass through, one side at a time. If you are planning to ride through this section, it’s a perfect time to TAKE THE LANE. As a cyclists, you have every right to do so and this is the safest way to pass through a one lane section like this. Ride in such a way that cars can not squeeze by you. The section is short, assert yourself and most importantly ensure you keep yourself safe.
If you are nervous about riding through the detour, we have a few people who are willing to ride with you, at your pace. If you contact us, we will put you in touch with someone to ride with and you can arrange a time and location to meet.
