Who We Are

VMBA is the exclusive voice of mountain biking advocacy in Vermont. Our chapter program and approach to state level advocacy is a uniquely effective combination that meaningfully links the perspectives of individual riders to the association’s work with state leadership. Comprised of thousands, we are an essential element of Vermont’s trail infrastructure that advocates for public land access, modernized policy, open access and sustainably constructed trails.

The Chapters

Chapters represent the very best of VMBA and Vermont. They represent over 30,000 hours of volunteer time annually through building and maintaining trails, hosting events and working with public & private landowners. The quality of riding in Vermont is a reflection of our chapters’ inspiration and dedication. To learn more about chapter operations and their full scope of trails, we encourage you to become a member and participate in chapter trail days.

Vermont MTB Retailers Alliance

Vermont MTB Retailers Alliance

Our local shops cannot survive on repair service income alone. Purchasing your bike at a Vermont shop matters. If your local shop doesn’t carry the brand you want, don’t go online…go for a drive. A VMBA Retailer’s Alliance shop has the new or used bike you want.
