Easily Network with other riders in the new WNY Mountain Bike Meetup
Written by Leapingdog   
Monday, 18 February 2013 10:49


Easily network with riders, create new events, and meet new riders with the WNYMBA's new meetup page.

The new Meetup.com site has been setup for mountain biking in WNY, and there is hope that this will attract many new members to join WNYMBA.

The Rochester, NY mountain bike club (GROC) has set up a similar account and has attracted 293 trail lovers, and Hamilton Trail Blazers now have 281 people.

 

It takes at least a few months to get to a critical mass of new members, before the membership takes off, so it would be very helpful if WNYMBA club members would join.

The cost is free and you can either create a new account or sign up with one click using your FaceBook account.

 

Please consider signing up and helping out with this new WNYMBA initiative.  Use your real name if you feel comfortable doing so.

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!

Allegany SP Trail Building is a GO!

Yes, the moment you have all been waiting for - new trail construction at ASP!

We have new trails approved in the Allegany State Park Master Plan.

We are starting construction this April 20 and 21 (special two for one deal).

We are going to start work on the Ridge Run singletrack extenion

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.
