VMBA’s primary purpose is to create meaningful connections between people that share a passion for the beauty and challenges of outdoor recreation. VMBA has established a new pace of mountain bike advocacy on behalf of our chapters and every rider enjoying Vermont trails through five key initiatives:
- A comprehensive chapter administrative platform
- Personalizing the work of the association with individual riders
- Developing robust public land manager relations
- Unprecedented private landowner representation
- Proactively blending the root characteristics of VT riding with new trail projects
These initiatives inspire innovation among chapters and riders, strengthening our collective voice. Your participation as a partner is meaningful. Our partners understand that VMBA plays many roles, from advocating for access and policy at the statehouse to connecting chapters through the groundbreaking VMBA chapter model. Partners fuel this important work, effectively multiplying rider’s voice and membership dollars. VMBA looks forward to innovating new territory with your support.
