Lend a Hand &
Volunteer with a Chapter & in your Community
Helping out in your community and on the trail is more important than ever. The recent flood has caused massive damage to everything we hold dear in Vermont. VMBA wants to help in away possible and has created a landing page for ways to help out the community and VMBA chapters.
With the focus on community first. We want to open up this program to anyone who has lent a hand to help out during the flood and with massive clean up to come. See below for how to enter those ours and the partners that help support this program.
Without the hard work of our volunteers, we would not have the trails we all love to ride & the communities we call home. As a way to say THANK YOU to all the volunteers that lend a hand to Chapters and their communities, we have our Reward Volunteers program. When you log your volunteer hours via the form below, every volunteer hour you log for a VMBA Chapter and your community is worth one entry to win some pretty sweet prizes.
How to Participate:
Starting June 1st, we will draw one monthly winner to receive a SWEET prize box (check out below!). You must ensure your hours are logged by the month’s end, and voila! 1 volunteer hour = 1 raffle entry.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What does a volunteer hour entail?
Great question! You can enter any volunteer activity that is connected to a VMBA Chapter, Local Community, or Vermont Adaptive bike program. For example, any trail work, fundraisers, tabling, administrative tasks, Clean Up, etc. can be counted as a volunteer hour if it has to do with a VMBA Chapter, Local Community, or Vermont Adaptive. So…log your hours today and you could receive a sweet new prize pack from our sponsors!
How do I figure out where I can volunteer?
Chapters will post regular updates regarding their trail days and other volunteer opportunities through social media. You can also keep an eye on our Events page. Finally, reach out to your local Chapter directly if you are wanting to learn more about their volunteer opportunities.
