WNY Mountain Bike 2014 Spring Kickoff Party at Tom's Bike Shop (& FREE BBQ)

The Westen New York Mountain Bike Association (WNYMBA) is sponsoring a Spring Kickoff Social Party at Tom's Bike Shop in their spacious training room.

The purpose of the event is to get everyone psyched for all the 2014 Mb season!

This event is for fun, and should be interesting, and we plan to just hang out to party after. Tom’s is generously supplying adult refreshment delicious food & snacks – so bring your appetites. We will be giving away plenty of swag prizes during this event & good music will be playing.

The format for the event is 5 minute speakers (1 hour max for speakers). It is fantastic for anyone interested in mountain biking to learn about all the fun times you can have this year.

We also plan to have speakers talk about the latest and greatest cutting edge bikes, TJ will attempt to break his world record for changing a Tubeless tire, and much more...
We will have a speaker and microphone set up, and a slide projector.

WNYMBA will promote this event on our web site, Facebook, Twitter, and Meetup site. Tom's is also promoting the event, so we hope to have a lot of new people there.

We are looking for people who are enthusiastic to get up and give a 5 minute pitch of their event.

    So, yes my tubeless wheel is still holding air strong! 26 psi! Proof that you can seat and retain air with a floor pump! One handed without sealant even! Gotta love Stan's rims! @notubes

    Please park across the street on the side roads (north), if no parking spots are open on Tom's side.

    We are expecting an excellent turnout (75 - 100). Please look for parking spots on the north side of Walden's side streets, if the south side is full.

    Almost 60 registered so far - including the Buffalo Outdoor meetup folks. Tom's advertising for the event as we'll. we could end up with a good size crowd for the event. Maybe 90 people?

    Very excited about this meetup, its mostly about having fun and free BBQ and adult beverages. You will really like hanging out at Tom's. He has a brand new multi-story facility. He has literately hundreds of the highest end bikes on display. Tom's has donated 19 high end swag items, including 4 pair of bike shorts which retail at $110 each. We expect 60 - 80 people for this event (it is a combo with BOM, WNY Mountain Bike Meetup, and WNYMBA). Expect to learn about the events this season & state of the art trail building techniques. ALL ARE WELCOME.
