MUD 2015 postponed indefinitely

You may or may not have seen that our 2015 MUD event was scheduled for this coming Saturday. Unfortunately, due to ongoing access issues to the clearing at Daniels Road State Forest, we’re pulling the plug on the MUD event this weekend. We tried to make a last minute change of venue, but our bike demos were cancelled before we could secure the location. Bummer.

Avoid Daniels Road Right-of-Way

Due to a property dispute, a neighboring property owner has blocked the road to the clearing in Daniels Road State Forest. This access road follows a right-of-way on private property. A portion of the road allegedly crosses onto an adjacent private property without permission. This is up to the DEC and property owner to resolve. The property owner has threatened to call the police if he sees mountain bikers on his property, so please avoid this area. When the trails dry out, please access via the Clinton and Daniels Road entrance.
