Every mountain biker has the power to help shape the future of our sport. Here are a few easy things you can do to help.
It's all about respect — respect for the land and the experiences of other trail users. Stay on the trail and pass other trail users carefully. Follow IMBA's simple Rules of the Trail.

Join Your Local Club
The work of local and regional mountain bike clubs is essential in keeping trails open for mountain biking. Most clubs organize regular rides, trailwork sessions and social events. By joining your local club, you'll support grassroots mountain bike advocacy, meet other riders, and learn about great trails to ride that are close to home.
Volunteer for Trailwork
Trailwork is sweat equity. Land managers and government agencies appreciate reliable, competent volunteers. In the last five years, IMBA members have volunteered nearly one million hours of their time to build new trails and improve existing paths. Trailwork is fun, rewarding, a great workout and it helps assure continuing trail access for our sport. Find IMBA Canada club and events near you!
