Why join the NSMBA?
The NSMBA is a voice for the mountain biking community of the North Shore. We protect and maintain the trails as environmental leaders, focussed on sustainability through education & action. We develop trail networks that provide challenge and progression while fostering mountain bike culture and a community that embraces our sport as a positive force.
** We are working on a new website to launch January 1st 2017! If you are having any issues with payment processing please email us firstname.lastname@example.org or consider purchasing your membership in the new year!**
What does being an Active Member mean?
Joining the NSMBA as an active member means that you care about keeping the trails of the North Shore open for all and forever. Your membership dues:
- Fund the purchase of materials, tools, and equipment for our volunteer trail days and trail builders
- Fund labour costs for some trail building projects
- Insure you for participation in NSMBA events such as trail maintenance days and organised rides
- Give you free or discounted admission to NSMBA and other bike-related events
- Voting rights for the Board of Directors at our Annual General Meeting hosted late November
Without the efforts of people like you, the North Shore trails you love would be in terrible condition, if not completely closed. We support local trailbuilders, hold awesome events, and work with landowners to ensure you have access to trails. Are you interested in seeing our current network of trails maintained while continuing to look at opportunities for new trails in the future? Get involved!

How long is a membership good for?
Your NSMBA Membership is calendar year, annual. The membership is valid from January 1 to December 31 of the year of purchase.
What is a Corporate Membership?
A corporate membership is a way for local riders, families, small businesses and large organizations to give just a little more back to the trails here on the North Shore. We understand that not everyone has the resources or time to commit to our Trail Adoption Plan (TAP) program. But that's ok, because as a Corporate Member, your extra funds go right back into the trails.
So what else do you get for the extra bucks besides extra trail karma?
- Four (4) Adult Membership cards for the season of purchase
- Recognition on our Corporate Members page with a link back to your business
- Recognition of your support to the NSMBA to be displayed in your office or home
- Invitation to sponsor only events
Connecting your small business with the NMSBA shows good-will and increases your brand awareness in the local community.
