New riders are always welcome.
When you become a member of the Nanaimo Mountain Bike Club, your membership donation goes directly to funding trail building and maintenance as well as liability insurance with the International Mountain Bicycling Association of Canada. The club membership fee is $40 per year and all members must also fill out an IMBA waiver every year for the insurance coverage as well as a Membership Form.
The Nanaimo Mountain Bike Club is covered under IMBA liability insurance. Through political lobbying, the formation of national land management partnerships and grassroots leadership, IMBA is the voice of mountain bikers worldwide.
The International Mountain Bicycling Association of Canada is a non-profit trail advocacy organization whose mission is to create, enhance, and preserve great trail experiences for mountain bikers throughout Canada. Located in Kitchener, ON, the IMBA Canada office is directed by Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew veteran, Lora Woolner, and staffed by trail advocates across the country.
Established in 2004, IMBA’s Canadian office seeks to develop the following for mountain biking in Canada: convenient access to appealing trails; trailbuilding expertise; a positive image; and political influence.
