Cycling Friends,
Help make mountain biking better in the West Central Adirondacks. We are looking for people interested in starting a new bike club in this area.

The West Central Adirondacks have some of the best mountain biking opportunities in the Easter U.S. and there are a lot of good things happening here.

We have been in conversations with IMBA and the New York State DEC and APA about local mountain bike trails and we have had people out working on trails.

It is time to get organized and build on the momentum! Come join us on Saturday October 19, for a group ride followed by an organizational meeting to discuss the new bike club. Read more…
