October Is Mountain Bike Season Thanks To NMMBA
October 2, 2018, 12:43 pm

It’s October, which means riders of all abilities are heading into the woods! Northern Michigan goes nuts for great autumn riding, races, and community events, and for everyone on a mountain bike, a lot of that fun is down to the hard work of Northern Michigan Mountain Bike Association.

We’re a little partial to the organization for a lot of reasons. First, NMMBA works tirelessly to build, protect, and maintain trails all over the region, from the Vasa Singletrack in Traverse City, the Glacial Hills Pathway in Bellaire, Cadillac Pathway, and all the great things happening in Leelanau County, too! They’re responsible for clearing trail issues, making important re-routes, and working with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to ensure environmental sustainability now and for decades to come.

NMMBA doesn’t stop this fall, either. They’ll be putting in countless hours of hard work to help shape the Iceman Cometh Challenge course ahead of race day in November, and the work doesn’t end there. Before the snow falls, NMMBA will be clearing and preparing trail for the Winter Sports Singletrack and offer up grooming badges so we’re all ready to ride in December!

Of course, we’re especially partial to some of those volunteers, too. Our own Tom White and Mike Walters have spearheaded trail work for the past two years with NMMBA, continuing work they’ve shouldered for decades previously. We’re extremely proud to have these guys split time between being the go-to trail builders and also toss on a City Bike Shop kit on race day or for a fun ride with the team.

There are plenty of great rides and races this month, including a huge Out’n’Back from Timber Ridge on October 13. Wherever or whenever you ride, make sure you thank NMMBA and all the volunteers who sacrifice not only saddle time but time with friends and family to give us all a place to ride.
