About Us

Our Backstory

Cycle-CNY has been an information hub for mountain bikers in the Southern Tier of New York since 2005. In 2012, we partnered with IMBA to become a non-profit organization and a Chapter of IMBA, positioning us to grow our impact on the regional mountain biking scene.

Cycle-CNY operates within the general geographic territory of the Southern Tier of NY, including the counties of Broome, Schuyler, Tompkins, Cortland, Chemung and Tioga. This includes the cities of Ithaca, Binghamton, Cortland, and Elmira.

Our Mission

We are on a mission to create, enhance and preserve great trail experiences for mountain bikers in the Southern Tier of New York State. Cycle-CNY seeks to preserve, protect, and promote mountain bike access and diverse riding opportunities on New York’s public and private lands through education, communication, and unified action.

Cycle-CNY is governed by a board-of-directors and has four elected officers, all supported by a joint Cycle-CNY and IMBA membership program. Your membership directly supports both national and local mountain bike initiatives.
