  • Chief Logan worth the drive!
    Its a ways down for some of the northern racers, but with a fast flowy course, camping, and a sweet lodge its worth it.
  • Big Bear Mountain Bike Weekend a Huge Success!
    Enduro racing rocks! A long weekend of biking fun in summer weather kickstarted everyones legs. These weekend events are great to camp and hang out - really the most fun part of bike racin anyways.
  • Simonton Windows Challenge at Mountwood Kicks off the Season
    It was great weather for early April, and it was a great day to be out on the bike. There were a few muddy spots, but luckily these guys have put in their drainage work so it was overall really dry. The kids skills course and race were awesome for the young racers in our mix, who says this is an adult sport?
  • Fun-Filled Weekend on Tap at Big Bear Lake
    Its the triple threat: Enduro 10:00 Sat, Short Track 6:00 Sat, and the Classic XC 12:00 Sun. You want a whole weekend full of racin' here it is. Join us as we debut this newest form of mtb racing that combines XC riding in between stages with Downhill time trials on our favorite gravity fed runs.
  • Simonton Windows Challenge at Mountwood this Sunday!
    Maybe if you've been living under a rock you don't know about this race coming up. Most racers have been thinking about it for the last 6-8 weeks as they were doing their training. No better way to train for a race than to race, I always say!

    It's always a success when the WVMBA Trail Care Crew gets together. About 20 volunteers showed up to help benchcut in a nice section of trail in the Bridgeport City Park. Thanks to everyone who came out!
  • 2014 Schedule Finally Announced!
    Sorry folks the holidays slowed us down and tried to make us eat too many cookies. But now we're getting excited about racing again and ready for a new year of fun!
  • Shingletree Maintenance a Success!
    It was a disaster-relief effort for some more of our trails damaged by Hurricane Sandy. There's some scenic mountain riding to be done here thanks to all who came out and helped us clear out this trail. Ask Joey at Joeys Bike Shop for more info on this trail system, or just stop at the trailhead on 219 outside of Parsons and check them out.
  • Trail Maintenance at Shingletree Nov 17
    We're clearing out some trail (again). Hurricane Sandy put the hurt on our higher elevation trails. Plus we just like getting together in the off-season to hang out. Contact Joey's Bike Shop or info@wvmba for more details.
  • Trail Maintenance at Pointy Knob Dec 8 10:00am
    Another trail love session planned. I know its tiring just to read about, but we're not done until all the trails are in good shape. If you know of an area that needs it, contact us but be ready to work! Come out Saturday for a ride on Splashdam!
  • WVMBA Meeting Dec 15 at 6:00 at Hickory House

  • Chestnut Ridge Trail Maintenance a Success - Against All Odds
    Do you like riding the other half of Coopers Rock? We do, and we're opening it back up to bicycles. We knew it was bad, but we also knew it would stay that way till we motivated. The Trout Pond Loop (Glade Run) is now open and we will be making gains every other week.
  • Next WVMBA Meeting Sun October 27th!! Hickory House 6pm
    Its that time of year- to start thinking about next years race season! (Not yet!!) Agenda will include: race schedule for next year, bringing back the junior sport category, a team points competition and how to structure that. All races need to have a representative present, or make prior arrangements with us to be in the series for next year.
  • Report From the Revenge of the Rattlesnake(Undisputed Toughest Mountain Bike race in The World)
    You might think that this is a complaint column, but despite everything working against me, I made it and even had a good time doing it. This area is rugged, and the trails ain't easy, but thats what makes them so fun. No rocks in the trail = no fun!!
  • Hammer Ultra Series Pays Out For First Time
    WVMBA would like to recognize all the racers tough enough to do the Ultra Series. These races are longer, more fun, and are set at some of West Virginia's (and Virginia's) most epic riding spots. They are all worth the drive from anywhere, GO LONG!!!!
