November Member Meeting/Night Ride

tagged as Cannonsburg Ski Area Trail,Community,Group Ride,Trails,Uncategorized

It’s always amusing when someone asks, “what do you do in your off season?”. For many of us, the tires get fatter, we add a few more layers and we strap on lights!

Join us this Thursday evening at Cannonsburg ski area where we will be focusing on “the off-season” riding and fitness options. Heidi LaPlante from Cycling XT (soon to be The Shift) will be discussing in-door training, Jill Martindale will say a few words about her experience at the Nite National race and we’ll hear some highlights from, world class mountain biker, Danielle Musto and her race in Scotland! We tell you what’s new with the WMMBA as well.

Cannonburg will be opening their doors and will have food and beverages available.

Also, bring your bike and your lights and come early as we will be hitting the trails for a pre-meeting ride at 5:45. If you’ve never ridden the trails at night, we will make sure we won’t loose you.

Ride time 5:45 (ish)
Meet and mingle 7PM
Meeting time 7:30PM

Hope to see you there!

Urgent announcement To all Yankee Springs Time Trial racers!
 
Due to the heavy unusual snow accumulation this winter the trail, the campground and access points for emergency exits are all not going to be in condition to hold the race on April 13th.
 
Thus, the WMMBA and DNR has agreed to move the 25th Anniversary of the Yankee Springs Time Trial race to SUNDAY MAY 18th!
 
The date has been moved in Bikereg and the registration close will also be changed.  Additionally, you will now have until the end of April to order T-Shirts!
 
The WMMBA appreciates all the great support and your understanding with regards to trail conditions, safety and maintenance of the Yankee Springs rustic area grounds.  Sorry for an inconvenience this may have caused.  However, by May 18th we might have 70 degree temperatures!
