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.

Easily Network with other riders in the new WNY Mountain Bike Meetup

Easily network with riders, create new events, and meet new riders with the WNYMBA's new meetup page.

The new Meetup.com site has been setup for mountain biking in WNY, and there is hope that this will attract many new members to join WNYMBA.

The Rochester, NY mountain bike club (GROC) has set up a similar account and has attracted 293 trail lovers, and Hamilton Trail Blazers now have 281 people.

 

It takes at least a few months to get to a critical mass of new members, before the membership takes off, so it would be very helpful if WNYMBA club members would join.

The cost is free and you can either create a new account or sign up with one click using your FaceBook account.

 

Please consider signing up and helping out with this new WNYMBA initiative.  Use your real name if you feel comfortable doing so.

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.
