Keep your eyes peeled on your computer screens this coming wednesday (Feb 13).

IMBA and Bell helmets will be funding development of three new trails, a DH/gravity trail, a pump track, and a flow trail.  WNYMBA submitted an application for funding under the flow trail category for the Cain Hollow trail, one of the three trails approved by the Allegany State Park Master plan.

IMBA will announce on Wednesday the four finalists for each category.  Keep hitting F5 on your browser over at http://www.imba.com/grants/bell-built on Wednesday to see if we make the cut!

 
Help Wanted - 2014 WNYMBA Race Director
Written by Ben Clauss   
Sunday, 10 February 2013 16:49

After years of hard work and well run events, our race directors are stepping down after the 2013 season.  Thanks to their efforts we have a well established race program in place and we need your help to continue its success.

This is the opportunity you've been waiting for.  Our race directors have a wealth of information to pass along and are willing to help out with race promotion here and there as their schedule permits.  Depending on your interest, you can take over the whole program, just run one event, or anything in between.  We encourage you to get involved this season so that you can learn the ropes while working with our current race directors.  Please consider becoming involved in any way you can.

If you are interested in taking over as WNYMBA race director for 2014 please contact:

Ben Clauss at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or Scott Jeziorski at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

We will also be discussing this at our next meeting. 

We are excited to see what the future brings for the WNYMBA race program.  This is your chance to get involved and help make the future of mountain bike racing in WNY great.  The WNYMBA Race Program is an essential part of the club not only providing exposure for the club and the trails that they have built and maintain but generating funds that ultimately get put back into the trails we all ride.

Unlike E-ville, trail building in ASP is more remote, and getting there takes longer from Buffalo (but shorter from Bradford, Olean, and Warren, hint..hint).  So we are going to do something different.

 

  • First, we are meeting earlier - 9 AM!  Yes, you have to get up early.

  • Second, we are driving out to the work area along the XC trails (special permission).  If you arrive late, you can bike out to meet us working.

  • Third, we are working all day.  Because it takes a while to get to where we are working, we will put in some long hours.  We will provide lunch *on the trail*!!  Don't worry, you don't have to stay the whole time if you don't want to.  But if you do leave early, you will miss...

  • Fourth, we are staying overnight in the Summit Cabins!  We have arranged to have two cabins provided by the park in return for our work.  This way we can stay over, have some fun, and get an early start Sunday morning on Day 2.

 

So get ready for some trail building.   This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it if you have any questions!

 

 
Allegany State Park Planning Process
Written by Jon Sundquist   
Thursday, 24 January 2013 20:37

This post is a little behind schedule but I am getting it up finally because the plan is soon to come to fruition.

ASP has one of the longest history of supporting mountain biking, and was the place where many of the early WNY MTB pioneers got there first rides in.  The Raccoon Rally has been running at ASP for an incredible 22 years now!

The one drawback has always been the lack of single track, since the hiking trails are off limits to bicycles.  The master planning process starting in 2010 was the perfect opportunity to get permission to develop new singletrack trails.

WNYMBA submitted a large, comprehensive proposal for new trails.  You can download it here, but beware - with lots of figures is is 35 MB!  WNYMBA provided detailed analysis of the proposed routes.

State parks came back with some comments, requiring us to modify one trail, but we took the opportunity to add another trail.  We submitted a revised proposal for two of the trails, and got all three approved!

The three trails are:

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.
