We have a great meeting shaping up for this months WMMBA member meeting!
We will be doing the “winter riding” edition with a focus on the fatty! That’s of course, the fat-bike! Fat-bikes went from being a “what the heck is that” type thing to one of the fastest selling type of bikes out there. We’ll have some of the folks that have been riding, selling and working on these smile inducing contraptions, sharing their experiences and wisdom and telling why they love their fatty!
We’ll also have some tips on ways to keep fit during the winter months (that some call the off season) and ideas on how to get you ready for spring/summer race season.
We’ll tell you what the WMMBA has up their sleeve this year, new trails, rides, races and events.
Plus, we will be doing a pre-meeting fat-bike ride on the brand new Cannonsburg groomed Fat-bike/XC ski trails! Ride time will be around 5:30PM (there is a small fee to ride the new trails).
Don’t own a fat-bike yet? No problem, we’ve asked several of our local shops to bring some of their finest two wheeled steeds for you to try out!
Cannonsburg will have some tasty food and drink specials for your after ride re-fueling!
So speed the word and see you there!

The Score Bar and Grill is launching their new “Craft Beer” line and will be tapping 120 craft beers and they would like us to help out on their new venture.
So, for one night only, they will be giving back 10% of everything they sell to the WMMBA!
All we have to do is show up, have some good food and maybe a craft beer(or so) and they will be giving back to us!
To make sure we are hungry and thirsty we will be meeting beforehand at the Cannonsburg Ski Area Trail (WMMBA) for a group ride around 5:30PM.
We’ll have a nice ride and head over to the Score for fun, food and craft beer!
