This is HUGE!

BUT, we need to offer our own support to MboSC by voting for their Demo Flow Trail RIGHT NOW.  Voting for the West Coast finalists closes Sunday (Easter) April 20th, so you must vote TODAY!

Please, help both MboSC and WNYMBA – do it now, it only takes a minute.  And you can still vote in the East Coast election starting May 5.

You vote by e-mail address. It's simple.  Here’s what you need to do:

  • Select "The Demo Flow Trail at Soquel"

Great Success with the WNY Mountain Bike 2014 Spring Kickoff Party
Written by Event Guy

We had almost 100 people attend our Spring Kickoff Social Party at Tom's Bike Shop.

It was a fun format.  First, Tom fed us great food and beverages, and we just socialized.  Then we had a bunch of 5 minute talks about upcoming events.  We gave out over $500 in prizes to trivia questions.

It was a good time had by all.  Thanks to WNYMBA and Tom's Pro Bike Shop for hosting the event.  Also thanks to the Buffalo Outdoors Meetup and WNY Mountain Bike Meetup for helping out and providing the people.

You can check out photos of the event here.

Thanks for everyone's help.

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.
