I know we’re all anxious to get back out there on the trails, but we ask to restrain yourselves for just a little bit until the trails fully dry and harden up after the thaw. Please see the article below for reference why we don’t ride muddy trails.

If your bike looks like below, you’re pretty much an asshole– Don’t be an asshole.

About the Festival

The Fat Tire Festival is a celebration of mountain biking camaraderie. One and all are welcome to come out and spend a day riding some of the greatest trails in New York State. Organized group rides for all ability levels, lead by experienced local guides, will be leaving throughout the day to explore the trails. Watch and compete in the many skills competitions, including a wheelie contest, fast and slow races, and the infamous, crowd-pleasing “skinny skills” contest on an ultra-narrow, raised wooden obstacle course.

Our local bike shop sponsors, including Yorktown Cycles, Hickory & Tweed, Down Cycles, Sierra Cycles, Danny’s Cycles and Briarcliff Bikeworks have donated many prizes and swag to be raffled off.

The Festival supports a great cause. A majority of the proceeds raised are donated to the Westchester County Friends of Parks. For 25 years the non-profit organization has worked to raise money to buy equipment, fund children’s programs, provide amenities and support the Westchester County Parks. Their vision is to keep the parks clean, green and growing. Come out and support a great cause, have some fun and give back to the Westchester County Parks.

About the WMBA

The WMBA is a grass-roots association that promotes mountain biking and offers leadership and organization to the mountain biking community in Westchester County. Founded in 1995 as the Cortlandt Area Bicycle Network (CABN), the organization’s name was later changed to reflect its county-wide focus. The WMBA works closely with the Westchester County Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation to maintain the area’s premier mountain biking trails. The WMBA also promotes trail advocacy, social interaction and group rides.
