Cycle-CNY Trail Support Program

Cycle-CNY is dedicated to creating, enhancing, and preserving great trail experiences for mountain bikers in the Southern Tier.  Our members and friends include dedicated volunteers, trail builders, and access advocates…as well as some amazing mountain bikers.  Our region offers some fantastic mountain bike trails, all made possible by local trail stewards that work hard to create and develop these diverse riding locations.  Outdoor recreation is a vital part of our region’s economic health and community well-being.  

Cycle-CNY maintains a trail fund to support the ongoing creation and enhancement of our region’s trails.  This fund supports local volunteer stewardship groups who build and maintain our region’s trails.  Need tools for volunteers?  Have a trail project that needs materials or equipment?  Need a loud voice to support a trail work day?  We’d like to help.  Tell us how your local mountain bike club can support your trail improvement plans, and let’s figure out how we can work together. 

We can support trail work projects anywhere in our region, including the local favorites listed here.

A huge thanks to our dedicated members and donors who have helped make this trail support program possible!
