Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MboSC), a BellBuilt grant finalist on the West Coast, has agreed to throw their full support behind WNYMBA when it comes time to vote our own Flow Trail at Holiday Valley in May.
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:
Unlike E-ville, trail building in ASP is more remote, and getting there takes longer from Buffalo (but shorter from Bradford, Olean, and Warren, hint..hint). So we are going to do something different.
First, don't worry, we are meeting at 10 AM! But remember, unless you are staying over in one of the free cabins, it is a farther drive than Ellicottville.
Second, we are biking out to the work area along the XC trails. The tools will already be out there ready for working.
Third, we are working all day. Because it takes a while to get to where we are working, we will put in some long hours. We will provide lunch *on the trail*!! Don't worry, you don't have to stay the whole time if you don't want to. But if you do leave early, you will miss...
Fourth, we are staying overnight in the Summit Cabins! We have arranged to have two cabins provided by the park in return for our work. This way we can stay over, have some fun, and get an early start Sunday morning on Day 2. WNYMBA is supplying the burgers and dogs for a great cookout feast on Saturday night, so don't miss it.
If you want to stay in a cabin , you have to RSVP at the meetup:
RSVP If you don't want to create a meetup account, then e-mail me (link below as soon as possible). It is first come first serve on the cabins.
So get ready for some trail building.
if you have any questions!
This is only a preview if we get the grant! We won't get the grant unless you vote. Voting starts May 5. Only one East Coast winner. Project with the most votes gets the whole thing. Loser gets nothing. Vote!!!
If anyone wants to help promoting the get-out-the-vote, please
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.
