National Trails Day at Hunters Creek, Saturday, June 4

hunterscreek2National Trails Day is next weekend!  

National Trails Day is WNYMBA's traditional "End of the Spring Trail Work Season". We take the summer off to ride (since that's what is is all about!) but end the spring trail work season with a bang. This year for the first time, we are holding NTD at Hunters Creek. It's about time we showed Hunters some NTD love in addition to our regular work days.

The project: We have a great project lined up. As you know, Hunters Creek is pretty much filled up with trails. Usually our HC work days are maintenance of existing trails. This year, we have permission to do a trail modification that will some additional mileage. It is one of the few places left in the park where a new section can be built sustainably, and will add a more logcial crossing of a tributary.

The celebration: We haven't had NTD at Hunters because there were no facilities for the post work feast we usually provide (unlike the Sprague Casino building or HV in E-ville). But this year, we are partnering with 42 North Brewery in East Aurora. Since we all want to get a bit of riding in after working, we will provide some at-the-trailhead refreshments immediately after working. After a ride, we will all regroup at 42 North for some free beer and food to cap off the day. 42 North has just released their "Creekside Session IPA" which is named after Hunters Creek.

If you've signed at Meetup, go ahead  and RSVP over there.  But even if you don't do Meetup, come on by anyway!  See you at the Centerline Parking lot @ 10 AM Saturday!

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.
