Fall Riding Tips
Written by Sliders Guy   
Tuesday, 09 October 2012 00:00

This time of year the riding can be great but definitely has it's challenges. The leaves cover up the trail and make things slick. After a dry summer it may be time to change tires to something that grips and sheds mud. That sweet line you love may have mud and leaves covering it up so keep your eyes peeled and ride light and quick over potentially slick roots. Feet and hands can get cold quick especially if they get wet so dress appropriately. The dry creek beds have some water in them now so warmer shoes or covers could be the ticket to a comfy ride. A quick clip on rear fender can save your butt from wet and muddy spray.

Just a few tips to keep you riding through the cooler fall weeks.

Keep Pedaling,

Sliders Guy

Jon Sundquist's long laughed at, but true, quote of "dancing with the bike" may have just been overtaken by Thom Wrights "surfing the contour"!

Mountain biking on upward climb
Written by Mad Man

"Over the last two years, it seems like people want to go riding again," said Dennis Baldwin, owner of the Ellicottville Bike Shop. "About 10 years ago, it was super-popular and now people are coming back to it. ... We have younger people, older people, guys and girls. It's pretty cool. Even in the small town of Ellicottville, I've had four younger, local guys, who hadn't been mountain biking, getting their own bikes and riding out in the woods. It's great to see new faces."

"There are two ways we see growth," said Kevin Preston, president of the Western New York Mountain Bicycling Association. "We're primarily a trail advocacy group and we work on adding and maintaining trails, not just for mountain biking, but for others to enjoy.

"Membership is the other way to measure growth, and right now we have about 160 members. That number has doubled in the last three or four years and it's still growing. More people want access to public outdoor places."

Indeed, mountain biking conversation has two components -- the sport and the environment. The two work together, as mountain bikers carry a strong sense of respect for nature and the trails, in part because of their collective ethic and in part because they need access to trails which often are on county or state lands.

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.
