What we're about

Did you know there are many miles of premier mountain biking trails right here in Western New York?

https://secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/a/d/2/6/600_435164326.jpeg

Many of these trails were built and are maintained by volunteers organized by the Western New York Mountain Bike Association (WNYMBA). Also, WNY is host to numerous mountain bike races and meetups every week during spring, summer, and fall. We even ride a little in the winter.

We are an easy going and friendly group of both male and female riders of every age and riding skill level. We need to get mountain bike enthusiasts together to ride, race, maintain the trails, and just hang out and have fun.

This meetup is organized by the Western New York Mountain Bike Association - http://www.wnymba.org . You don't need to join WNYMBA to join this meetup, but you should definitely check out our website to see projects and activities coming up, and to access the great maps of local area trails.
