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:

2013 WNYMBA Winter Fest Mountain Bike Race

In its second year, the Winter Fest Mountain Bike Race at Chestnut Ridge Park is sure to be hit once again.  The fact that most of the course is visible from the top near the casino will make this a great event to watch.  The race will be on a short-track course a little over a mile in length, with the first part going down the sledding hill.  COURSE MAP

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!

 
The Art of Passing and Being Passed
Written by Scott Bixby   
Wednesday, 31 October 2012 18:00

I’ve been racing mountain bikes since 2003. Obviously, I’ve had to pass other racers and based on my general lack of speed, I’ve been passed many, many times. Unlike many other disciplines of bicycle racing, passing and being passed during a mountain bike race can be stressful, generally because of the nature of the course. Single track typically is only wide enough for one bicycle so here’s a few things to remember that will make the passing/being passed experience safer and less stressful.

 
2013 WNYMBA Racing

With the 2013 race season starting just after the holidays with the 2nd annual Winterfest Race in late January, I thought some discussions about racing/riding would be nice since the weather is not cooperating for riding.  To start it off, slower_than_u has written an article about passing, which touches on general race etiquette.  I have also started a new topic in the forums HERE, where anyone can go in and post a comment or question.

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.
