WNYMBA would like to be the first to congratulate Richmond Virginia MORE on winning the East Coast Bell Built grant.  WNYMBA is proud of the deep support that we received throughout the Western New York community.  Even though we were unsuccessful in pursuit of this grant, losing 13,896 - 13,029, we believe that it is a win for WNYMBA and Western New York to realize the enthusiasm and effectiveness of this particular group of volunteers - WNYMBA - in our continuing efforts to make Western New York a better place.  Even without this grant, WNYMBA will continue in our efforts to develop trails in the forests of WNY, and will continue to pursue grant opportunities to develop a wider variety of trail types in our area, including more flow, downhill, and beginner trails.

Special thanks go out the to the following for doing a tremendous amount of work spreading the word about this contest and helping WNYMBA to a strong second place finish:

  • Holiday Valley
  • Elllicottville Chamber of Commerce
  • Cattaraugus County Tourism
  • Ellicottville Brewing Company

In addition, we'd like to thank the Wonderful Community of WNY and all the many individuals who dug in and helped with our campaign. You know who you are and so do we – thanks!

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.
