But maybe you were too busy eating turkey to notice.

Meanwhile, get out and ride in the warm weather, just remember it's hunting season in the state forests.

 
Mountain biking on upward climb

"Over the last two years, it seems like people want to go riding again," said Dennis Baldwin, owner of the Ellicottville Bike Shop. "About 10 years ago, it was super-popular and now people are coming back to it. ... We have younger people, older people, guys and girls. It's pretty cool. Even in the small town of Ellicottville, I've had four younger, local guys, who hadn't been mountain biking, getting their own bikes and riding out in the woods. It's great to see new faces."

"There are two ways we see growth," said Kevin Preston, president of the Western New York Mountain Bicycling Association. "We're primarily a trail advocacy group and we work on adding and maintaining trails, not just for mountain biking, but for others to enjoy.

"Membership is the other way to measure growth, and right now we have about 160 members. That number has doubled in the last three or four years and it's still growing. More people want access to public outdoor places."

Indeed, mountain biking conversation has two components -- the sport and the environment. The two work together, as mountain bikers carry a strong sense of respect for nature and the trails, in part because of their collective ethic and in part because they need access to trails which often are on county or state lands.

This video includes most of the Sprague Brook main loop.

It was shot before the "new" downhill was made and also doesn't include the "Bridge" trail or Foote Road.

The new web site allows us to post videos in place of articles. If this is a feature we like, maybe we can get a preview link on the Homepage.

Sorry for the slow pace, we were just trying to keep the riders together for video sake. Enjoy.

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.
