What Would We Do Without Trails?

Mountain biking has helped us all get away, clear our heads, stay healthy, and enjoy time outdoors. We suspect every mountain biker has looked down a trail and appreciated it now more than ever.
Trail stewards and advocates also matter more than ever. Protecting and maintaining the trails we all enjoy is increasingly important as we’ve watched overflowing parking lots and crowded trail heads.
Good quality trails don’t magically appear, trails happen because BUMP, our dedicated members and volunteers make them happen.

Join or renew your BUMP membership in May through June and you will be entered to win one of the 10 amazing gift packages from IMBA!

If you are a current member and renew, your membership will extend an additional year from the end date.

We want to thank our sponsors for putting together 10 amazing prize packages. Someone will be taking them home, it might as well be you!

Keeping Trails Fun

Are you going to be riding next year? The following year? The one after? Of course you will be! Your support now means that more and better trails will be there for you when you need them.

Keeping trails fun to ride takes effort, time and resources. BUMP depends on our club members and volunteers. We hold monthly Trail workdays in addition to our designated volunteers cleaning out fallen trees in between the workdays.

When you join BUMP, the majority of your membership dollars are distributed and applied directly to the local efforts through IMBA. Your voice drives national progress and your commitment helps new trails come to life where you live and ride. We would love for everyone who rides local trails that are maintained by BUMP to show your support and appreciation by joining and becoming a member. All it takes is $39/year or $5 per month.

Progress for trails is still happening, even now – be a part of our success.
