It's More Than Just Riding

Get Involved

Ryan Bent

No one’s stopping you from showing up, riding trails, then busting a move home.

But we’re pretty sure every ride is better in the company of friends—and that trails ride better when you help build them.

Get involved in a local VMBA Chapter by lending a hand in some capacity. We welcome volunteers of all ages and abilities to pitch in at trail-building days (no experience necessary!), to help organize an event, or to get involved as a partner. Plus, we always appreciate donations; help make Vermont a better place to ride for everyone. Please stay tuned into the chapters’ websites to learn about opportunities to safely pitch in during COVID-19.  

Need more incentive to volunteer? Join the Reward Volunteers program. We have partnered with Cabot to host a raffle bike for those that dig in to make a difference this year. Every trail day that you attend gets you another chance to win a $5000+ bike – you choose model, size and color. Dig and win!

Get involved and give back for trails that are faster, flowier, and even more fun.

Retailer's Alliance

Retailer's Alliance

Bike shops are the heart of the riding community. The shops in the Alliance understand rider membership means power to their local chapters...from more hands on more shovels to an amplified voice in their local meeting halls. Helping to ensure that every rider is a member, these shops offer sweet member benefits to all VMBA Members. If we all shop local, there's plenty to go around.
