Caroga Lake, NY -“Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.” And no better time to take one of those dirt paths than this weekend August 12 and 13 at the second annual Wheelerville Trails Mountain Bike Festival. Located in the small hamlet Wheelerville – appropriately named – on NY Route 10 in Caroga Lake, New York. The event promises a wild weekend of two-wheeled fun in the southern Adirondacks.

“Last year’s event went beyond all expectations, and the dedication of the mountain bike community is truly what brought the festival to the next level,” states Jeremy Manning, Wheelerville Trails Manager.

This year will feature a return of the Live Free and Fly Downhill Race, Jump Jam, wheelie competition, guided rides, skills clinics, great food, music and outdoor gear raffle. There will also be new trails, a new skills area for kids and bigger and better jumps. » Continue Reading.
