Support Mountain Biking

IMBA Local associations are member-based groups focused on trails, access, rides and social events on close-to-home trails. IMBA works with IMBA Local partners to support and enhance trail building, advocacy and organizational efforts.

IMBA’s vision is to build the quality and quantity of mountain biking communities by supporting and empowering local leadership. We want to help communities build a base of knowledgeable and capable advocates and stewards.

How can you help? Support your nearest chapter, or more than one if you like – individuals can have up to 10 chapter memberships. It's an easy and rewarding way to support the team that knows your local trails.

Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates (MWTA)

Since 1991, MedWheel has been advocating for, constructing, and maintaining trails throughout the Pikes Peak region.  We work regularly with the city of COS in every one of our open spaces and regional parks, El Paso County, US Forest Service and CS Utilities. Also several trails in Cheyenne Mountain State Park were constructed by MedWheel. We've completed notable trail projects include Lake Moraine, Codell, the Chutes, Spring Creek, Stephanie's, Lion, Chamberlain, Almond Butter & Rattle Rocks, Buckhorn & Jacks, and many others throughout the Pikes Peak region. 

We partner with all land managers and strive to work with all trail users to create inspiring trail experiences for everyone, in balance with conservation of our region's incredible natural resources for future generations.

MedWheel also works with private land owners to create trails that are available to the public.

A significant portion of our work is navigating the complicated public processes around land use and access. We participate in, and inform trail users about all master planning processes in order to maximize access to trails.

MedWheel also works across the region and the state to advocate for trails in places where a voice for trails isn't already present. We helped to start up the Trinidad Trails Alliance (and participated in the Fishers Peak master plan), the Cuchara Mountain Trails Alliance, and the Teller Trails Team.  MedWheel is a founding member and serves on the board of the Colorado Mountain Bike Coalition, which works at the state level on MTB trail issues.

Medwheel welcomes suggestions on trail projects at all times, and we encourage volunteerism in the dirt through our Trail Love dig days.
