Membership connects you with the world’s largest movement of mountain bikers, as well as directly funding our local mountain bike advocacy and trail building efforts.  We share a passion for bicycling and we promote sustainable experiences in the natural world.  Members enjoy special benefits and privileges.   If you ride, you belong with us.
