Skirts in the Dirt Trail Work Night

tagged as Blog,Volunteer

One of the primary goals of the West Michigan Mountain Biking Alliance (WMMBA) is to build and maintain the awesome trails that we get to ride regularly here in West Michigan. We are SUPER EXCITED to invite all of you ladies to impact the trail we will be riding during the race the following Sunday!

Join us on Wednesday, Aug 19th at 5:30 for an evening of trail work fun! If you own some trimmers or pruners bring them along.

Husbands, boyfriends, sons, and other guys are welcome to come, but what we would love to see is a ton of ladies out maintaining trail!

If you cannot make it until later, just let us know and we’ll tell you where on the trail we’ll be so that you can meet up with us.  See you there!!

With this section we’ll be able to make it a loop connecting back to the existing trail with a temporary route. Meet in the parking lot by the WMMBA trailer. Bring boots, gloves, water, and bug spray! Tools provided.

Hurt the Dirt volunteers needed!

tagged as Luton Park,Volunteer

At our last meeting, we heard from Mark Van Tongeren – Michigan Adventure Racing.
The WMMBA is the charity partner of the Hurt the Dirt trail race at Luton Park on April 25.
For every WMMBA member who volunteers at the race, Hurt the Dirt will contribute 1-2% of its profits to the WMMBA, up to 10%.
Plus, he always takes care of his volunteers!

Mark and MI Adventure racing has always been a great supporter, ally and friend of the WMMBA. I hope we all can get together and give some love back!

January Member Meeting/Fat bike/Night Ride

tagged as Chapter Meeting,Community,Events,Fat Bike,Fundraising,Grand Loop,Grand Rapids,Ken-O-Sha,Member Meetings,Trails,Volunteer

We are just days into the new year, the snow finally showed up (hopefully, to stay this time) and time for the January, WMMBA Member Meeting!

Many of us made a few resolutions for the new year, ride more, ride at night, get involved with the WMMBA, etc…
We want to help you keep those resolutions.

This Wednesday night, we will be meeting at the Indian Trails Golf Course. With the new snow on the ground, Indian Trails will have their groomed fat bike course open and ready for the season and we would like you to help us ride it in.

Afterward, the club house will be open, with roaring fire to warm you back up, beverages available on tap and yes, there will be food!

Central District Cyclery will be serving up the food! They’ll have roast pig, vegetarian beens and all the other fixings as well!

Central District Cyclery will also be contributing $15 towards any new WMMBA membership! We’ve spoke with a lot of you who are on the fence about becoming a WMMBA member and CDC would like to make it a bit easier to jump on board. We’ll be there to answer questions about membership and tell you about some of the great things the WMMBA has lined up for the year.

So, grab your fat bike, grab your friends, bring your appetite and join us on Wednesday, January 14th, 201512216679-standard-1. Ride time starts at 6pm, food starts at 7pm and meeting time is 7:30 (ish).
Lights and helmets are required on he course, so bring them, please.

Don’t have a fat bike? There will be demos on hand! Don’t want to ride? Join us for the meeting! See you then!
