HV set to do MB-2 Trail updates with excvator

bermWNYMBA met with Holiday Valley to discuss needed improvements in the MB-2 Trail (formerly known as the flow trail) due to the wet summer.  Updates to newly built trails are usually needed after the first year of use.

Holiday Valley will be renting an excavator for the next month to shore up areas with poor drainage, including the seep area on Champaign.  Also where needed, rock and boardwalk will be installed in other seep areas.  Additionally, some bermed turns will be reconfigured for better flow.

Holiday Valley did an amazing job getting this trail built quickly last year, installing many culverts and moving a lot of dirt.  At this point, we want to assist their crew in the repairs to make sure updates are made from the rider's perspective - to test ride the work and make sure things flow.  The plan is to have riders assist in the work by being present during much of the activities.

The work will be performed 7 to 3:30 each weekday, Of course most of us are at work then and won't be able to help out, but we are looking for volunteers who may have the time.

Dennis, from Bike and Bean will try to make it out most mornings before his shop opens which will cover a lot of ground.  If others who have some time, like maybe school teachers light on work in the summer ;-) are also welcome to assist HV in the repairs.  If you can help, please contact WNYMBA.

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.
