Get outside with NMMBA and build

NMMBA is an important steward of trails in northern Michigan because we take the time to get outside, ride, groom, maintain, and build. Our organization can only exist because of the hours our membership spends actually doing the work to support our mission. Check out our events list and calendar below for an up-to-date snapshot of every upcoming ride, trail work day, fundraiser, and even an occasional happy hour at any of our favorite local après-ride watering holes.


Long and Shorts

Long and Shorts is our most important fundraising festival held every June. Long and Shorts is more than just a ride – it’s a complete weekend of festivities. Our volunteers start on Friday to set up a multitude of riding courses throughout our region covering 10, 25 and 50-miles. Our riders spend Saturday morning enjoying some of our favorite single-track in the region, and our afternoon and evening is capped off with live music, great local food, and, most importantly, a stocked beer truck courtesy of Short’s Brewing. Stay tuned for details for the 2016, and most importantly, ride long and drink Short’s!
