Fats In The Cats Bicycle Club
A fun bunch of cyclists based in New York's Hudson Valley. We ride, we advocate, we build trails.
We ride, we advocate, we build trails.
The Fats in the Cats Bicycle Club is a not for profit group with the mission of promoting cycling advocacy, trail building, trail maintenance, and community service. Since 1994, the club has been advocating, stewarding, and improving many of the best places to ride a mountain bike in New York’s Catskill Park and Hudson Valley Region. In addition, the club organizes group rides and gives away dozens of bikes to needy kids in Kingston every holiday season.
Get involved and join the club. It’s just $15/year and you get discounts at local shops and your support helps your local cycling culture prosper!
One of the goals of our club is to bring the adventure back to mountain biking by exploring off-the-beaten track trails throughout the Hudson Valley. Another is to cultivate a club that encourages a sense of self worth that comes from a willingness to participate in club activities. We insist that our members share in the onus of maintaining the club rather than simply paying a fee, riding away and letting others do the work. If you have a good work ethic and want there to be more to mountain biking than just riding carriage roads and groomed single track, then Renegades is the place for you. There are no membership dues. We ask only that you volunteer for trail maintenance or help out at our races by committing 25 hours per year of your time (just 2 hours per month). After the first 25 hours of volunteer effort you are eligible for club tees and jerseys at special pricing
