What we're about

TheAverageJoeJoe's Outdoor Adventure Group is for anyone (man or woman) who is looking to explore the outdoors. We will mostly be mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, and trail running. Our day trips will primarily be in Westchester County, but plan on doing trips in the Hudson Highlands, Catskills, Adirondacks, Whites, Greens, and Maine. A few times a year, I would like to adventure outside the Northeast to other parts of America, and even oversees. I will be doing Japan trips in the near future, since I go there twice a year.

All you need is either a mountain bike, a kayak, and/or some hiking footwear (barefoot hikers welcome, too!). But most of all, a healthy spirit and openness to push yourself is your main source of equipment!

Winterbike 2019 Kingdom Trails, East Burke, VT Friday- Sunday 03/01-03/2018

The dates are (arrive) Friday March 1st, (ride) Saturday March 3rd, (riding/skiing/snowboarding possibly) Sunday March 4th. **FREE FAT BIKE DEMOS** Looking to get up to Kingdom Trails again this year to demo Fat Bikes in the snow again. A few of us did it the past few years (not last year, no Snow) and we had a lot of fun. There's also a Fat Bike Race during the event. We need to plan ahead so that we can get a cabin of something for the amount of people coming. We'll be heading up Friday evening and coming back Sunday (most likely plan) RSVP and let me know what your lodging plans are. Once I get 3 or 4 deposits, I will book the lodge. Probable will fit 4 people max. We can look into a larger place if needed. ONLY a DEPOSIT will reserve your space at the lodge/cabin we're staying at. OUR RIDE SCHEDULE WILL BE DIFFERENT Demos are usually set for 45 minutes max. If you want a fatbike for the day, you'll need to bring yours or rent one at a local shop. Plan Ahead. Shops attending will offer Demos and/or rentals. You’ll be able to contact your favorite shop in advance of the event to procure a steed to use all day. Details and prices will vary per vendor. http://kingdomtrails.org/calendar/winterbike/ **SUPER IMPORTANT NOTICE!** if you plan to bring your bike, you may want to put it inside your vehicle. The salt from the road will remove your paint and deteriorate your frame. I have two bike with peeling paint, down to the aluminum (or aluminium if your Brittish ;-) ) from using a bike rack in the Winter** FRIDAY PRE-REG PARTY: They will host a pre-registration checkin & social on Friday March 1st at the Bure Mountain Hotel. Plan to show up between 6:00 and 8:00pm for early registration and pre-gaming! Yup, skip the Saturday morning lineup and head straight into the event! DEMO FATBIKES will be available from the vendors in the Expo area for 45 minute rides throughout the day on a first come first served basis. Demo loops will be signed and be an optimal length for a perfect 45 minute “ride it like you stole it” demo experience. Shops attending will offer Demos and/or rentals. You’ll be able to contact your favorite shop in advance of the event to procure a steed to use all day. Details and prices will vary per vendor.
