Golden Hill Update

The Golden Trail system is currently undergoing “modifications”. Several years ago, large sections of Golden Hill State Forest suffered severe defoliation and damage due to an infestation of tent caterpillars. About a quarter-mile of the “Blue Loop” at Golden Hill was affected and riders here watched and even listened, as the forest canopy underwent changes by the weeks and by the season.

A shout out to Ellicottville Brewing Company

It takes a lot of tools to build and maintain trail.  And that includes a nice cool beverage after working. EBC, the folks that bring us all Eagle Trail IPA, obviously are big supporters of our trail work, as they like to ride, too. For our Allegany trail work weekend just past, Dan the brewmaster donated a case of EBC's new 2 Brothers Session IPA for our relaxing enjoyment.   We'd like to thank EBC and look forward to working with the on more and bigger projects in the future.

We're moving our next meeting from the stuffy, indoor, wintertime confines of the northtowns to the wide open spaces of the country! Join us at the Colden Country Inn on Wednesdsay May 20th at 8:00PM for our first "remote" meeting of the new year. Get in your after-work ride at Sprague Brook Park (right up the road from the Inn in Colden, NY) and then stop on the way home for pizza and the latest MTB updates and gossip for Western New York. Not a WNYMBA member? No problem - you're welcome as long as you "Speak" mountain bike!

E-ville April 11 Trail Work Day Cancelled due to snow!

Unbelievably, our second work day is also cancelled this year!  This is a view of Mutton Hollow Road.  It is the same in both directions.  I don't really want to have to have folks hike up to the work area, so we will have cancel this one as well.  But Sprague Brook is still on for Sunday!

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.
