Board meeting Tuesday, Nov. 15

Board meetings are where lots of boring stuff happens.  We try to work out boring details about running the club, in order to present to the general membership during our regular meetings.  They aren't a lot of fun, but since WNYMBA isn't a secret organization, any members can come to if they are looking for a snoozefest.  OUr next one is going to be Tuesday Nov. 15 to talk about ebikes (Cattaraugus County contacted us about them), update on membership drive, outer harbor, darien lake, and HV next steps, tool inventory, website, and 2017 goals.  This one will be at Hamburg Brewring @ 7:00 on Nov. 15 (Tuesday) (WNYMBA isn't buying, just in case you wondered).  If you like the nuts and bolts of running a nonprofit, see you there!

Outer Harbor MTB Trail Moves Forward with Selection of Design Firm

As was reported last fall, the ECHDC had scrapped the original plan for large development on the outer harbor in favor of faster, lighter, cheaper alternatives.  Thanks to ECHDC's soliciting and listening to ideas from the public, including a proposal from WNYMBA, the revised master plan (http://eriecanalharbor.com/outer-harbor/PDF/Outer_Harbor_Blueprint.pdf) included an MTB park on portions of the outer harbor land. Not much has happened publicly over the last year since the revised plan was released, as the ECHDC was working on procuring a design firm for the park and the other 5 or  improvements to be made under the new 2015 plan.  Last week, ECHDC announced the selection of Trowbridge as the design firm, and reaffirmed the MTB course to be included in the design (http://news.wbfo.org/post/mountain-bike-course-approved-buffalos-outer-harbor).  WNYMBA will remain in communication with ECHDC as this exciting new development unfolds.

Fall 2016 Trail Work Schedule Announced

It may not feel like fall yet, but it sure is getting darker faster.  That means it's time for the fall work schedule.  We hope you can make it to one or two this fall.  We have tried to schedule around major events, but do have one event on Oct. 8 (fall fest weekend) where we hope to have some boy scouts helping out.  We have events scheduled every weekend up through November.  See you on the trails!   Web page calendar Link Meetup Link (same info)

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
