Western New York, or commonly shortened as WNY, offers some opportunity to get out and enjoy the outdoors. We do have to work for it a bit as our public lands access is not as plentiful as out on the west coast. this inspired the name for the ride and the ride itself - "wny not you?"
I hope to assemble a good crew of 4-6 guys and gals and depart from the city of buffalo and head into southern tier in search of elevation gain, dirt, and remote camping opportunities. there are two dedicated trails in the neighboring county called west side overland trail and east side overland trail. my plan is to connect those two during our weekend and utilize the lean-to shelters that are readily available. connecting the two systems will be a matter of navigating country dirt and gravel roads.
in between, i will look to sample a brewery or two, and make for a happy getaway on bikes.
