2020 Annual Fund

Tuesday, December 1, 2020


Mountain biking is good for our bodies, our communities, our kids, our trails, and local economies.


We can’t imagine a world without it. 


We all share a passion for mountain biking. A passion for being outdoors and enjoying natural spaces. We hope that you will express your passion by contributing to NEMBA's Annual Fund.

2020 has been a year of challenges, change, and reflection. We hope that mountain biking has provided an escape during these turbulent times. This pandemic has brought new energy into the outdoor recreation community.

More people are mountain biking, either as first-time riders or people rediscovering the sport, and we must capture and keep this energy going. With this increase in trail use comes increased needs for maintenance, advocacy, and for new & expanded trail systems. Your support will help this happen.

Donate $100 or more by January 10th, 2021 and we'll send you a pair of "Supporter " edition SockGuy socks! 

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, your donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.



Your support funds Trail Grant and Signature Trail Grant programs across New England.

In 2020 we received the highest number of trail grant applications ever. We successfully funded over $50,000 in trail projects throughout New England. 


Help us make this impact even bigger in 2021.


Through your membership support, we also sent over $120,000 to local chapters. NEMBA is dedicated to educating riders and land managers about how to ride, build, and care for great trails. We work with land managers, public officials, and legislators to promote more opportunities for mountain biking, as well as to preserve and protect our access to these great places.


This is a direct investment in trails and mountain biking advocacy in New England.


In 2021, we will continue to support trail building & maintenance efforts, to connect communities across the region, and expand our digital presence.

Together we can build an even stronger community that is inclusive and diverse. A community of stewards for the trails we love. A community of educators who shape the future of the sport.

Thank you for your support. We appreciate your generosity.
