I got into mountain biking AFTER this event last year. It sounds terrific so I think I'm be there this time 'round!WMBA's TENTH ANNUAL FAT TIRE FESTIVAL
Westchester Mountain Biking Association?s Ninth Annual Fat Tire Festival will be held on Sunday, June 5, 2005, at Blue Mountain Reservation in Peekskill, New York.
The WMBA is a grass-roots organization of mountain biking friends and enthusiasts advocating mountain biking and multiple use trails in a safe and environmentally sound manner. The group offers leadership and organization to the mountain biking community in Westchester County, NY. We work with Westchester County Parks to develop new trails in the County Parks and help to maintain the ones already in use.
The Fat Tire Festival is a fun time for anyone interested in mountain biking. Our event is not a race, but an opportunity for mountain bike enthusiasts, friends and families to ride, spend the day together, appreciate the sport and educate riders about proper stewardship of the trails. There's food, games, and a raffle featuring specialty prizes especially for mountain bikers. But there's also a special purpose: This year we have partnered with The Friends of Westchester County Parks, Inc. For 25 years this 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. So this fun event will also raise a few dollars to help the Westchester Parks system thrive well into the future.
? Music & Food - Can we have fun without these? Luckily, we don?t have to.
? Bike Limbo - How low can you go? Different age (and size) classes for the best competition.
? Clunker Toss - Take out your frustrations on our clunker. It?s more about technique than strength.
? Slowest Rider Race - Test your bike handling skills in a race for the tortoise in all of us. The last rider over the line wins.
? Trials Demonstration - See how the best can handle their rigs. Don?t try this at home!
? Guided Rides all day long - Fun trail rides for all levels beginner to advanced.
? Full Suspension Bike Demo Rides - Try the latest suspension bikes for real test rides on the trails.
? Poker Rally - Contestants ride the trails stopping at different stations to pick up a playing card. The more stations you visit, the more cards you get. Build the best Poker hand you can and then meet back at Rally Central to see how you?ve done. This is a great event for riders of all skill and fitness levels. All participants receive a commemorative T-shirt and a chance to win a new bike.
? Raffle - A fabulous raffle for both bikers and non-bikers. Prizes include a full-suspension mountain bike and a 27? Color TV.
