NMMBA Annual Meeting: January 6, 2019

Meetings are never this fun! Join us at Timber Ridge on Sunday, January 6 to ride, eat, and learn more about our big plans for 2019 and beyond!

We work hard to keep our members informed and engaged with everything we’ve got going on, and that’s a lot! We’re working on trail days and a full season of winter grooming at the Winter Sports Trail, Cadillac Pathway, Glacial Hills, and Leelanau State Park. But beyond the next several months of fat bike fun, we’ve got trail proposals and trail building opportunities all over our region. We want to get our members together to let them know what’s on the docket, put more names to faces, and get in some saddle time.

We’re back at Timber Ride for a full afternoon of fun to kick off January. Just as the new year starts to get revved up, we’re calling on members to join us for a ride, a meal, and an opportunity to voice your own priorities, questions, and concerns. We’ll get things rolling, literally, with a group ride at 3pm, with at least two groups heading out to enjoy the Winter Sports Trail, including a few new miles that have been added for this season! We’ll all be back by 5pm to dig into a potluck, so consider bringing a little something to share.

After eating and spending some time to talk to all of our trail reps, we’ll have a short formal presentation from the board and highlight some of our goals for 2019, 2020, and beyond. You’ll get updates from each trail, a schedule of NMMBA events, including the Traverse City Trail Festival and Bear Claw Epic, updates on the Glacial Hills signage project, and a lot of big things happening in Leelanau County, including more on Palmer Woods.

We are really excited about what we have lined up to offer quality, natural, fun, and sustainable places to ride and reconnect with nature. The trails are such a vital part of the northern Michigan way of life, and we take that connection very seriously. Providing individuals and families a safe place to unplug and a great place to learn and develop a passion for mountain biking is at the heart of our mission. In 2019, we’re stepping up our game even more!
