About 40 mountain bikers took advantage of Rider Appreciation Weekend Oct. 3-4 at Oak Mountain in Speculator, riding the chairlift up and their bicycles down the mountain.

A lot of them came from Syracuse, Rochester and Albany, Oak Manager Matt O'Brien said, and some camped out overnight. The high point of the day -- no pun intended -- was a race at noon.
