Joining the NMBC means you care about trails and about the future of mountain biking in your community. Your membership dues support local trail maintenance and advocacy, and funds the necessary training and equipment the organization needs to build safe and sustainable trails.

As Nanaimo’s official mountain bike advocacy group, we work with private landowners and governments (local, provincial, and federal) to manage and maintain public trail access for non-motorized users, which includes hikers, trail runners, dog walkers—everyone. Even if you’re not an avid mountain biker, your support is deeply appreciated.


All funds raised from memberships goes directly towards trail building and advocacy initiatives, so it’s a great way to contribute to the growth and maintenance of trails managed by the NMBC, which currently include Doumont, Westwood Lake, and the Outer Bypass.

Please feel free to join us and see what we are about. This is a diverse group and we all bring different interests and talents to the organization as we work to improve mountain biking trails and nurture the culture in the Nanaimo region.
