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.


Traverse City TRail Festival 7/21/2018


We've revamped and relocated our biggest fundraiser of the summer. After some fun years with the Long and Short's Ride, we're excited to bring you the Traverse City Trail Festival! Short's Brewing Company has hopped on help us bring you 40 and 25 mile race and tour options from beautiful Ranch Rudolf on July 22. That's right, two routes that you can race, or tour at your pace with friends. 

Bikes, beer, and incredible trails. We've picked the very best singletrack to include on both of these routes. These are the best sections of the former X100 Race, and the best routes mean the most fun! Proceeds go to our maintenance and advocacy efforts right here in Northern Michigan!
