yes they have XC trails and yes they have beginner/intermediate DH trails. It is worth it to go there for the weekend.

Getting some bigger tires will make a big difference on the loose rocks.

I was checking out the Plattekill site and I have a question - If I am not into all out downhill riding, would it still be worth the trip? I see that they have some xc trails and some beginner/intermediate dh trails - are they decent trails?

Not too sure of how many people on here actually ride DH seriously but I think its worth posting about the Work Day this Saturday at Plattekill. Basically you work all day on Saturday starting at 9AM and then Sunday you get a free lift pass as well as a free pass for sometime during the riding season. You get a free BBQ Lunch on Saturday also.

I will be in Buffalo on Friday for my buddies birthday and will be driving from there bright and early about 4am on Saturday. If anyone is seriously interested but needs a ride there I have room for one (1) more bike and gear in my car. I get 35 mpg in my new car, so gas will only be about 20-35 bucks per person. PM me if interested.

WORK WEEKEND April 30-May 1


HERE'S THE SKINNY:

We are looking for volunteers to help kick trails into shape! Its a work/ride weekend -- so we will be working all day Saturday and spinning lifts for those who worked Saturday on Sunday. No tickets will be sold on Sunday to non-volunteers.

All volunteers will receive FREE ticket on Sunday to ride, another voucher to ride another time during the 2011 season, AND a FREE BBQ lunch on Saturday.

If interested:
Meet Saturday morning at 9am (main parking lot) and be prepared to work the day.
Please bring your own hand tools.

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.
