WNY Mountain Bike 2014 Spring Kickoff Party at Tom's Bike Shop (+ Cookout Feast)


The Westen New York Mountain Bike Association (WNYMBA) is sponsoring a Spring Kickoff Social Party at Tom's Bike Shop in their spacious training room.

The purpose of the event is to get everyone psyched for all the 2014 Mb season!

This event is for fun, and should be interesting, and we plan to just hang out to party after.

Tom’s is generously supplying adult refreshment delicious food & snacks – so bring your appetites. We will be giving away plenty of swag prizes during this event & good music will be playing.

The format for the event is 5 minute speakers (1 hour max for speakers). It is fantastic for anyone interested in mountain biking to learn about all the fun times you can have this year.

We also plan to have speakers talk about the latest and greatest cutting edge bikes, TJ will attempt to break his world record for changing a Tubeless tire, and much more... We will have a speaker and microphone set up, and a slide projector.

WNYMBA will promote this event on our web site, Facebook, Twitter, and Meetup site. Tom's is also promoting the event, so we hope to have a lot of new people there.

We are looking for people who are enthusiastic to get up and give a 5 minute pitch of their event.

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.
