It saddens us to notify you all that a member of our bike community had a terrible accident on Sunday. Skye Kerr was riding at Killington when she sustained a complete and permanent spinal cord injury, leaving her paralyzed from the mid chest down. She is currently in the ICU at Dartmouth. To support Skye and one another we are hosting a “Ride for Skye” ride this Sunday at 10 o’clock at the Hurricane Town Forest.(directions in the comments). Cash and check donations will be accepted to help support Skye in her recovery. If you would like to donate but can not join us please get in touch with Kim Bean, or donate via gofundme:
gf.me/u/y5t6n8

Skye is not allowed visitors at this time other than her mother. However good old fashioned cards and notes can be sent to:
1 Medical Center Drive
Lebanon, NH 03766
Skye Kerr (patient)
We know she would love to hear from her fellow riders. We hope you will join us in supporting Skye. Please feel free to pass this on to others as appropriate.

There will likely be additional events in the future, as she will need support as she transitions out of the hospital.

PC and rider: thanks to Jill Cutting, and no, that is not Boston Lot, but it is a real UVMBA member, on a real ripping ebike. Green Woodlands Foundation

Finally! Thank you! I truly believe after this trial period all misconceptions will be put to rest. I just became a member.

Already saw a few out there today. Glad to see more people enjoying the trails. A bike is a bike!

Thanks UVMBA!

Thinking about doing some trailwork? Think on this: single day Chainsaw training: Oct 10 and 11, through the HACTC.
Learn chainsaw safety, skills and maintenance from a personable expert who has trained thousands of loggers, arborists, foresters and folks who have never started a saw. Everyone, experienced or not, learns new skills in this small-group, hands-on training.

These are two different days of training. GOL 1 and 2. You need to take 1 before taking 2. I took them years ago from this instructor. You’ll learn how to put a tree where you want it, safely and using less effort. You’ll also learn basic maintenance.

I'm signed up, and very excited about it!

This is a great idea, I was wondering about a class like this recently!

"Take a kid mountain biking day" is October 3rd, this SATURDAY. Now, we don't think you should only take the kids out once a year, but - this Saturday you have one more reason.🗓️ IMBA Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day is next Saturday, Oct. 3rd! 🎉 We encourage families and smaller, socially distanced groups to take kids mountain biking in lieu of the usual bigger local events. 🙏 PeopleForBikes.org

Go Margaret!!! Love the Christmas bells in the background.

Yup, those lines look pretty enticing. But please don't build your own rogue trails in our networks! DO IT RIGHT and contact us first at info.uvmba.com ... See MoreSee Less

I meant trail work not team work.

FYI, there is a big tree down at the bottom of Screaming Downhill on Oak Hill. you should have time to stop after the drainage pipe at bottom but that would depend on how fast you are going.

Trails. Food. River views. Socially distanced gathering.

We think this deserves a stop on your Sunday routine. Happening today through the rest of the summer.

Got mud?! Use your best judgement and don't ride significant muddy areas, but for smaller ones it is preferred to ride STRAIGHT through the wet area rather than going around and enlarging the problem spot ... See MoreSee Less
