The Adirondack Bike Ranch is opening on April 18 in upstate New York. Owner Paul Maggy is building the park on his own property, with plans for an indoor mountain bike park onsite.
Kicking it off on 4/18 with the Adirondack Bike Festival, they’ll have an XC race in the morning, followed by a kids race, music, food and tons of free stuff to give away, including raffling off a Rocky Mountain ETSX 10 Foes XCT5 (Foes will be a second raffle at a later date) and other bikes donated from local bike shops.
As if he weren’t busy enough, Paul has also started the Northern Adirondack Mountain Bike Association (NAMBA?) to develop the trails in the park. He’s also opening a full service bicycle shop, called Mountain Riders, onsite that will stock Foes, Kona and Norco.

The geography where his park is located is a great area for mountain bike trails, so even though the ground is covered with snow and leaves in these pics, my guess is there is tremendous potential for world-class riding there.
During a phone conversation with Paul, he said there’s a lack of riding opportunities around him despite several bike shops that do very well, selling largely to a student population. He’s using students from an Event Management class to help promote the grand opening festival. Here’s hoping that once it’s built, those students will study mountain biking, too.
Here’s the building that will house the indoor mountain bike park.
