Spring membership drive

IMBA has a spring membership promotion running, with perks for joining/renewing members and potential $ for the chapter!

We're close - so close - to our growth target. Just a few more new members joining (or existing members renewing early!) in the next few days and the chapter will receive a nice $ bonus - enough to pay for a new 75' bridge on a trail, or add a dozen McLeods to the tool trailer, or provide 200 lunches for volunteer trailbuilders!

This is your opportunity to really make a difference. Please renew or join today!

 

Sapling Loop

Congratulations to the City of Novi and our volunteers for winning the Michigan Recreation and Park Association's Design Award - Outstanding Park for the Lakeshore Park toddler singletrack! Now formally named the Sapling Loop, this beginner trail will provide tomorrow's mountain bikers a safe, fun place to develop balance and skills. 

This is your award, for a trail designed, built, and funded by our members and volunteers - Thanks!

 

 

 

Volunteer of the Year 2016

Congrats to our MCMBA volunteer of the year - Michael Faulk! 

For the past several years Michael has invested much of his life into building and polishing Lakeshore Park's trail features, especially the signature Pump Track. If you've ridden Lakeshore you've probably seen him out there, shovel in hand, tweaking a lip or berm until the flow was perfect. 

Thanks Michael! 

Chapter Meeting

Our next Chapter meeting is on March 10th at 7:00 PM at the Claddagh Irish Pub (17800 Haggerty Road, Livonia).  We'll be discussing upcoming trail days, improvements for each trail, and other MCMBA events for the year!  See the meeting AGENDA for more details.
