NYCMB is for anyone that shares a passion for mountain biking and trail riding. We are a fully volunteer/no charge/no profit like minded group of people who simply gather to share experiences, discover and explore all the wonderful bike trails in our area that nature has to offer and of course, make new friends.
We try to plan different events for all levels of riders, so you don't have to be a downhill racer to be a part of this group. But we do have some pretty strong riders that definitely will make sure you have a great workout if that's what you're after.
We ride as a group to enjoy the event together so no one gets left too far behind and no one is pushed beyond their comfort level.
>>>We ride through woods on fairly rugged terrain so a true "fat tire" mountain bike, preferably with front suspension, is required. A Hybrid bike will not be enough for most of the places we ride.<<<
If someone is tired and can't keep up, they won't be left alone. If someone has a problem with their bike, they'll usually have 3 or 4 other riders vying to help fix it. If someone's hurt, they and their bike will be helped back to the trailhead and home if needed.
No doubt you'll find that mountain bikers are the best kinda people.
Are you what we consider a Beginner, Intermediate or an Advanced rider?
Lets ride MTB peeps! But first...some beers...
If you're new to the group and/or NYC, come out and learn about all of the mountain bike opportunities available to us in the tri-state area. If you have questions about gear, bikes, where to ride, etc. come out and we'll be happy to answer any questions that you have to make sure you get out and ride this year. Or maybe just hang out and have a few beers with like minded peeps.
This Meetup marks the successful completion of a solid 12 months in a row for off-mountain meetups - Yeah! So we're going back to our original location downtown Houston Hall for nostalgia sake.
As always, looking forward to seeing some new faces and old friends.
