Do You Travel to Ride?

Regional Alliance

The Regional Alliance is a partnership of regional mountain bike and trails organizations that encourages mutual support across the East Coast region of the United States and our friends in Canada through shared advocacy, strategies, and promotion.  (More updates to come in May of 2024)

Do you travel to any of these areas to ride? If so, consider sharing some support for their trails. The cornerstone of the alliance is the assurance that riders are supporting their home trails first, then branching out to share some love for other trails they enjoy and want to help protect, maintain, and grow. Keep an eye out for news on events and promotions.

We are proud to partner with Kingdom Trails Association (KTA), a nonprofit organization located in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. Their mission is “to provide recreation and education opportunities by managing, maintaining, and building trails to foster the health of our local community, surrounding environment, and regional economy.” They offer 100+ miles of non-motorized, multi-use trails in all seasons.

New England Mountain Bike Association (NEMBA) and VMBA have partnered together to build a stronger mountain bike community. NEMBA’s mission is to “promote responsible mountain biking and to protect and preserve New England trails and open spaces.” You can become a member of NEMBA by adding them to your VMBA Membership to support both organizations.

BETA’s mission is to foster community by building, maintaining and advocating for a system of front and backcountry trails for mountain biking, ski touring and other human-powered activities in the High Peaks region. BETA currently maintains over 125 miles of trails on Forest Preserve, municipal and private lands in the High Peaks region of the Adirondack Park.  Most of the trails are purpose-built for mountain biking or ski touring but also accommodate other human-powered activities.

The Quebec Mountain Bike (QVDM) alliance represents the five main trail centers of the greater Quebec City region, offering close to 250 miles of mountain bike trails. Each destination boasts its own unique characteristics providing exceptional experiences for mountain bikers of all levels. With its high-quality and diverse trails, complemented by spectacular views of breathtaking nature, the greater Quebec City region stands out as an essential destination for mountain biking enthusiasts.

The Jersey Off Road Bicycle Association (JORBA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which is dedicated to serving off road cyclists as a member of equal standing within the trail user community. Founded in 1999, our focus is to build and maintain sustainable multi-use trails, organize and encourage volunteerism and responsibility, and advocate and foster mountain biking as a healthy, environmentally sound, and sustainable activity in New Jersey (aka The Rock Garden State).
