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

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.

Long Time WNYMBA member Larry Mordue passes away

We knew the day was coming as Larry had been battling cancer for quite some time, but we are still all very sad to hear that Larry Mordue passed away this past weekend.  Larry was a very dedicated WNYMBA member contributing to all aspects of our club for many years, including race directing and setting up the patrol.  Larry was so dedicated to WNYMBA, attending meetings regularly well after his illness had weakened him.  We all looked forward to seeing him at meetings each month after we could not longer ride or work with him on the trails.  We will miss him dearly.

 

Here is the latest information from his son:

The memorial service is at 1PM on Monday July 9, 2012. It will be held at Mount Olive Lutheran Church 6965 Chestnut Ridge Road Lockport, NY 14094  (716) 434-8500.

There will not be a viewing as my dad wished to be cremated.  Instead of flowers, the family asks that anyone who wishes to can make a donation to WNYMBA, Livestrong, any cancer charity, or any other charity that makes the world a better place in some way.  My dad was definitely focused on living life to the fullest, preferable outdoors on his bike,  and being in a room full of flowers was not really in line with the type of guy he was.  There is no dress code or anything like that.  People should just come as they would normally dress, they can even ride their bikes if they want,  that's definitely the way my dad would have wanted it.

But maybe you were too busy eating turkey to notice.

Meanwhile, get out and ride in the warm weather, just remember it's hunting season in the state forests.

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.
