Welcome to the Fernie Mountain Bike Club

Welcome to the Fernie Mountain Bike Club (FMBC) website! The FMBC is a member-based, non-profit organization with a mandate to foster and promote building, maintaining and riding the Fernie trails, which is done in conjunction with the Fernie Trails Alliance.

Collaborating with other groups such as the Fernie Trails Alliance, the FMBC encourages recreational and competitive cycling for all ages and abilities and promotes responsible mountain biking practices and land use. 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.
