The FMBC is an integral part of advocating for access of trails, management and maintenance of recreational mountain bike trail use.

The FMBC organizes events such as the annual Spring Bike Blitz, the Wam Bam Dirt Jump Jam, 2NEE races, the Dirt Diggler, and the High Roller event.

A fun weekly race/ride series for all mountain bikers.

Mark your calendars and start NOT training (those caught training are disqualified...kidding...but training is highly frowned upon). Go hard and compete for the bragging rights or just come and enjoy the fun with like minded bikers. These are typically more enduro style and the emphasis is on having fun. Prizes and titles up for grabs!
