Description

Come enjoy an evening with fellow fat bikers and the Recreation Department. The Allegany State Park Environmental Education and Recreation Department will be leading another Fat Bike Fun Ride on April 26, 2019 at the Red House Administration Building at 6:30 p.m., with the ride starting at 7:00 p.m. Check-in will be in the main lobby of the Administration Building. If you are interested in renting a bike for the evening, please call Loud Performance Products at (716)-386-1171. Bikes are limited. Bring a helmet, headlight, warm clothes and a snack to share for the after ride social sponsored by Western New York Mountain Bike Association.
The 5-mile fun ride is for all levels and will last up to 2 hours, depending on the weather. Riders will find themselves exploring new terrain throughout the Red House side of the park.
With the growing popularity of fat bikes, the Recreation department wanted to give patrons another way to enjoy the trails. Fat tire bikes will also be available for demos during mountain bike tours in the summer.
Fat bikes are the monster trucks of the bike world. With big tires, typically 3.8 in (97 mm) or wider, they are designed for low pressure to allow riding on soft, unstable terrain, such as snow, sand, bogs and mud. They have been around since the early 1900’s, but it wasn’t until frame builders in both Alaska and Mexico began experimenting with different frames, parts and tire widths in the 1990’s that “Fat Bikes” were born.
This is a free event.

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.
