Sprague Brook Loop

This video includes most of the Sprague Brook main loop.

It was shot before the "new" downhill was made and also doesn't include the "Bridge" trail or Foote Road.

The new web site allows us to post videos in place of articles. If this is a feature we like, maybe we can get a preview link on the Homepage.

Sorry for the slow pace, we were just trying to keep the riders together for video sake. Enjoy.

Go ahead, submit an article

You all probably noticed that we have the login only on the front page of the website now.  We want to make sure everyone gets a look at the latest news from WNYMBA, and the place for that is the front page.

You can help keep the content on the front page fresh but submitting an article.  Anyone can do it!  You will see a new menu button on the left.  Click it and type or paste in your article.  An editor will take a look at it, edit if necessary (like make more paragraph breaks so it's easier to read), add in the "read more..." line.  Then it will show up as a feature article.

New Forum is up and running

The new website has a new forum up and running.  The lounge is indeed dead, but we now have a new forum with new discussion categories.  You can still post trail conditions, too, but this is accessed separately through the Trail Conditions Page.  If you miss your old avatar, don't worry, all the old uploaded icons are still available when you edit your profile.  Just select the "olduploads" gallery.

Concerned about posts by the general public that hurt our abilities to get and keep trails open to bicycles, we decided to start a moderation program.  We modeled it on what other bicycle clubs have done, most specifically the Southern Off Road Bicycle Association (SORBA), one of the largest and most successful MTB clubs in the nation.  Moderation will be guided by these specific rules, which most will agree are common sense.  Criticism is still welcome, so long as it is constructive.  Of course, praise and development of new ideas are even better!

Welcome to WNYMBA's New Web Site

Welcome to WNYMBA’s new web site - and I do mean new! The previous site was established in 2004, so it was long overdue for an overhaul to bring the aged site into the new millennium.

We wanted to have a kinder and gentler site that would, at the same time, provide more useful and timely information and also more effectively support our mission.

We decided at our September 15th meeting to establish a committee to pursue a new design and software package to replace the existing site to meet these needs.

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.
