Our corner of the Adirondack Park is fast becoming a popular destination for riders across the region and beyond. It is not uncommon to see out-of-state plates in our trailhead parking lots. Whether they are locals or visitors, BETA is focused on encouraging support from all of the riders enjoying the trails in our region. Other groups in the Northeast have a similar interest.
To that end BETA has partnered with a number of our fellow regional trails organizations and assembled the Northeast Mountain Bike Alliance. The purpose of the group is to share ideas, promotional opportunities/discounts and offer reciprocal membership. More riders discovering the BETA region is inevitable.
The Northeast is filled with riders that travel regularly to ride - why not collaborate and get everyone a good deal while obtaining more support for all of the trails? The goal is simple - to encourage more support for our trails in a way that BETA, and other organizations, can use once nonresidents have traveled back home. As of January 1, 2017 the following organizations have joined the Alliance:
- VMBA - Vermont Mountain Bike Association
- JORBA - Jersey Off Road Bike Association
- MH&T - Maine Huts & Trails
- NYCMTB - New York City Mountain Bike Association
- CLIMB - Concerned Long Island Mountain Bikers
- SMBA - Saratoga Mountain Bike Association
