WNYMBA Stymied for major RTP grant

WNYMBA submitted for a Recreational Trails Program (RTP) Grant this past fall in an effort to garner funds for building one of the new Trails at Allegany State Park.  While we have one of the three approved trails (the one off of Ridge Run) mostly built, the other two are more remote and could benefit from some contracted construction.  The proposal was quite an effort (take a look here).  The RTP program is federally available trail building funding that in New York is administered by the State Parks folks.

We unfortunately were not successful in pursuit of the grant. However, we gained great experience, and got some records organized enough to help in our recent solicitations for funds for the Muck Truck, which has been a successful effort.

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.
