Welcome to the new MYGROC.COM!

Things looking a little different? You're not crazy. Welcome to the new MYGROC.COM!

For this season, we have re-designed our website from the ground up to make it easier for you to find trail information and conditions, upcoming trail crew meetups, and group rides. We have also integrated with MTB Project to provide up-to-date, GPS-capable maps for free on your iOS or Android device!

Starting on the home page, you'll find a new and improved version of our Trail Conditions widget, which anyone is free to update. Users of the old system should find this process to be familiar and easy-to-use. Visitors who are on a computer or laptop will also see a local map highlighting various riding in upstate New York.

In addition to our Trail Crew Meetup, we've launched the Trail Rides Meetup. The community at large is free to use this group to host rides - head over to the Meetup page to find out how. We aim to promote more group rides this season through this new Meetup group. We've already got tons of Trail Crew events scheduled for the summer, so be sure to sign up for the Trail Crew Meetup group if you haven't done so yet!

You'll notice that we've done away with the old GROC mobile app. Fear not; all of our local parks have been mapped in full on MTB Project! MTB Project (created by REI) is free to use, and has free apps available for both iOS and Android. Head to your favorite park, fire up the MTB Project app, and your phone's GPS will give you your exact location on the trail system. We will be working with MTB Project to keep these maps up-to-date as new trails pop up in the parks. You will find a link to the MTB Project page for each of our parks on their corresponding pages.

Take a few minutes and check out what we've done with the place. After that, don't forget to renew your membership and sign up for trail crew!
