From Holimont:

"I would like to invite WNYMBA to our ski and bike sale April 27 (see attached flyer). If you would like to setup a booth with information on memberships, bike trails, upcoming events and trial work projects then we have space for you in our main chalet. The cost is free!

We are offering an additional 10% off all of our sale prices for any of your members that show up for the sale. All they have to do is show their current membership card.

We'll have on sale all of our Rocky Mountain rental and demo bikes, bike clothes, shoes, accessories and parts.

Unfortunately we will not be operating our bike rental shop this summer. This is due to construction of the Westmont Project where our bike trails where located. They will be putting in new roads, services and utilities to recently sold building sites in that area.

So everything must go! We will be selling ski and snowsport product as well; cross over product will include gloves, socks, sunglasses, helmet liners and base layers."

Thank You Holimont for the invite!

Spring 2013

Quite the spring weekend here in WNY recently.  I got about 10 miles of skiing in at the still heavily snow covered Sprague Brook park on Saturday and then a 45 mile road ride on Sunday!

It reminded me what a typical WNY winter the past few months have been.  Not a lot of snow in Buffalo, but lots of lake effect down south.  Last winter, with no snow and a never-frozen Lake Erie, we had an early spring and were out on the trails in no time.  This year is more typical, with the snow actually more deep than unusual at many of our favorite riding places now in early March.

With the snow gone in Buffalo and the northtowns, and the mercury hitting 60 for a day, it is even more important to remember that our riding places are all in the buckle of the snow belt, and will be sporting skiers for a while to come.  We say typically April 15 +/- is when the trails are ready in most years.  Last year it was earlier, but this year, it is looking later.  Stay tuned to the trail condition reports to find when they are ready to ride.

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.
