Well, it looks like the seasons are changing, snow is melting and there is a fresh smell of spring in the air! It is almost single-track season! The WMMBA is gearing up for a great for a great year and we’d love to tell you about it.
Monday night at 7PM, Cannonsburg Ski Area will be opening their doors for us in the Bear Creek room (and will be serving beverages). So, we’ll have lot of room!
For those of you who missed the January meeting/membership drive, we’ve got you covered!
3rd Coast Cycles in Hudsonville be our host this time. They will be offering $15 towards any new or renewing WMMBA/IMBA membership! Thats because Mike, Ross and the rest of the gang at the shop know that every WMMBA/IMBA membership helps secure the quality and quantity of of our great trails! Every member really makes a difference in so many ways!
We will also be throwing in an awesome new WMMBA t-shirts with any new membership. They will also be available for purchase that evening.
Plus, this just so happens to fall in line with the IMBA spring membership drive. The spring drive includes prize incentives from Scott Bicycles, Western Spirit Cycling, Specialized Bicycles and the Oskar Blues Brewing/REEB Ranch worth over $10,000.
So, just for signing up as a member, from now to the end of the month, you are automatically entered in the IMBA drawing.
Why are we doing all of this?
Memberships and contributions help support new trails, bike parks, advocacy and land protection efforts. They help protect not just a sport or hobby, but for many of us a way of life! We know this, 3rd Coast Cycles knows is (along with many other fine shops local and across he country) and many folks local and across the nation know this! Come find out for yourself!
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.

Meet and mingle 7PM

Hope to see you there!
We were contacted by Calvary Baptist Church, located near the Ken O Sha trail, in regards to bikers utilizing the church parking lot as well as cutting across other areas of their property. Their lot and grounds are private property and there is parking off of Ken-O-Sha drive.
Please, if and when you check out that awesome trail, be respectful to its neighbors!
