Sorry folks , due to all the rain that fell Friday night into Saturday morning we are postponing the ride tomorrow and as soon as we pick a new date we”ll post it up. Thanks for your understanding in our decision to postpone.
Do to the heavy rain fall in the last 24 hrs we may have to cancel the D H fun ride , we will be out their on Saturday afternoon checking on trail conditions , please check back on Saturday evening for an update.
A couple of years ago some downhill mountain bike enthusiasts, led by Chris Nichols and Mike LaBlanc, and with encouragement from the Town of Cumberland,began developing freeride trails in Diamond Hill State Park, an 8,000 acre undeveloped area across from the former Diamond Hill ski Area . The riders realized the area also held enormous potential for cross country trails and recruited help from the broader RINEMBA community. Everyone that showed to help was hooked – they saw what special place it is and saw the rare opportunity to develop a trail system that eventually will rival any other place in Rhode Island. There is still much work to do , but several folks have been working hard to create a trail network and are eager to show off their efforts.
The Diamond Hill Fun ride is this Sunday , June 9th. Registration is from 9:00 am to noon. Parking is at Diamond Hill State Park on rt 114 , about 3 miles north of Rt 295 in Cumberland .
We”ll have an 8ish mile arrrowed loop that will show off some of the spectacular Diamond Hill terrain. This Fun Ride will be more low-key than others we’ve had… we’re calling it ” A Taste of Diamond Hill ” … there will be only one marked loop( which , despite the length, will challenge most riders ),there will be no charge for the ride, and we won”t be providing food ( but the nearby Ice Cream Machine will beckon). There will be a chance to try ( or to advoid ) some of the downhill sections . We think once you see the area , you”ll be hooked too.
This months meeting will be held at J Greys 405 Mendon rd Cumberland on Tuesday June 4th at 8:00 pm . If you have some free time before the meeting we will be meeting at Diamond Hill main parking area at 4:30 to do some trail work for this Sunday”s DH fun ride.
