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!

New Ski Area map and trails

tagged as Blog,Cannonsburg Ski Area Trail,Trails

OK-here is an updated map of the Cannonsburg Ski Area since we re-signed the entire trail today! The Triple East and West are now one-way traffic based on days of the week, similar to Merrell. The days are listed on this map and also with signage on the trail junctions. We hope we improved the markings to keep first timers and the seldom users on course by marking the main loop in white arrows with all the optional loops in different colors. Creek Trail has brown arrows, the Connector has blue arrows, the Triple East and West have red arrows and Bill’s Hill is marked with yellow arrows. All of these options can be bypassed as most of you know just take all the white arrow options. Take all the options and it is now 9 miles long!

In an effort to help trail users know trail conditions before driving to the trail head, we’ve created a new “Trail Conditions” page on our website. Simply click on “Trail Conditions” under “Trails” at the top of our website or go to wmmba.org/trail-conditions/. If the trail is green you’re good to go, if it’s red stay home. We will especially be updating these during the spring thaw when trails are at their most vulnerable.
