The sun shines down as the rubber meets the road. OK, in this case, it may be rubber meeting the dirt, grass, rocks, ramps, whatever the trail may present.
June 5-7 in Ellicottville is Bicycle Weekend presented by Wingate by Wyndham, and the adventures are yours to be discovered! The village will be awash in tricks as Schwinny performs on his mountain bike on Saturday and Sunday.
Schwinny is a 15-year veteran of the professional mountain biking circuit. Yes, there are people that get paid to go out and have fun on their bikes! He has been a regular performer, hitting such events as The Vans Warped Tour, the Canadian Final Eight Basketball games and has even been featured on Travis Pastrana’s “Nitro Circus.” His shows are a mix of flat land and ramp tricks, all while interacting with the audience and telling his story.
Schwinny will be doing his thing on Monroe Street at noon, 2 p.m., and 4 p.m. on Saturday and again at noon and 3 p.m. on Sunday. All of the performances are free and open to the public.
While all of this is going on, Holiday Valley will be hosting their second-annual Bicycle weekend. Registered attendants will be able to participate in workshops and take road rides over miles of scenic Cattaraugus County byways.
