From Holimont:

"I would like to invite WNYMBA to our ski and bike sale April 27 (see attached flyer). If you would like to setup a booth with information on memberships, bike trails, upcoming events and trial work projects then we have space for you in our main chalet. The cost is free!

We are offering an additional 10% off all of our sale prices for any of your members that show up for the sale. All they have to do is show their current membership card.

We'll have on sale all of our Rocky Mountain rental and demo bikes, bike clothes, shoes, accessories and parts.

Unfortunately we will not be operating our bike rental shop this summer. This is due to construction of the Westmont Project where our bike trails where located. They will be putting in new roads, services and utilities to recently sold building sites in that area.

So everything must go! We will be selling ski and snowsport product as well; cross over product will include gloves, socks, sunglasses, helmet liners and base layers."

Thank You Holimont for the invite!

IMBA\'s Mid Atlantic regional Director had a meeting with some of the folks from the Allegeny National Forest yesterday. The main take away is that... the project is alive and moving forward (kind of like me getting up Eagle,,maybe not as quick as you\'ll would like, but it\'s getting there. Frank feels things are very promising. The PKP, ANF and a few colleges feel confident that the NEPA study will be accomplished in due time.

Some of the decision makers at the ANF out of the Bradford Regional office affirmed their commitment to the project and are going to work with IMBA to secure the Recreational Trail Funds from the State for the Construction. Because of the deadlines, they suggested that the application goes in this Spring,(although it\'s unlikely to pass this first time since not every requirement is met, (the NEPA)). But that it will rise to the top for the following year as a high priority project. The ANF rep stated that on at least two occasions he has discussed the project with Rep. Thompson, who had also expressed his support for the project.

So what does all this mean? They will be going after 3/4 of the funds needed for phase 1. The rest hopefully will come from local and regional sources. Phase 1 trails will be up around Jake\'s Rocks,as well as a trail down to Dew Drop campground and connecting up to Kinzua Point. Approx. 18 miles of machine built (with some hand tool finishing) going through some of the most impressive rock formations that area has to offer. At least one (bike only gravityish) trail will likely be completed in this phase as well.
The most realistic time frame would be start construction in Spring 2015.... and it\'s conceivable that this first phase could be completed in one build season and have some significant Fall riding time.

We Southerner folk will continue to keep you\'ll updated. and remember.. wait for me at the top of Eagle...I\'ll get there sooner or later...

Written by Jim Allen

10. Your co-workers are too exhausted to ride farther or faster than you when everyone finally puts down the shovels.

9.   You get to play with big trucks in the woods just like childhood.

8.   Running that wheelbarrow through the woods and a half-mile down the trail makes you very happy that you sit in an office every day.

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.
