NOT A FEST, but the next best thing - a WNYMBA camping weekend!

Holiday Valley has graciously given us permission to use the Spruce Lake area of the resort for a WNYMBA Members Camping weekend over the weekend of August 15-17. We'll have special areas set aside at the top of the hill for camping and parking and we'll also have drive-up access, via the cul-de-sac gate at the top of Holiday valley Road.

Camping, group rides, swimming and campfire lie-telling all in one place - what could be better?

Food, drinking water, tables, chairs and camping equipment will be each member's responsibility. As a bonus though, our weekend is also the "Taste of Ellicottville" weekend, so getting your hands on some high-quality fast food in town at almost any hour couldn't be easier.

Since this is a last-minute, members-only event, we'll need advance notice from you that you plan to attend. If you're not a WNYMBA member, you can join on the spot, but we'll still need advance notice that you're coming. Only pre-registrants will have access to the gate code. There's no fee to register, but we will be passing the hat to pay for the portable toilets.

Contact our VP Jeff Smith at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to confirm your attendance. Please tell him (a) When you'll be arriving - Friday night or Saturday morning (b) How many people in your group.

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.
