Trails are where we spend time with our people, find our flow, and keep our skills sharp. Riding opportunities are growing in more places and for all skill levels, at a pace that’s unprecedented. Riders and trail champions have been pulling together, and we’ve proven we can get amazing things done when we collaborate! 

One way to keep that momentum going is to join or renew with your IMBA Local Member Organization – they know your local riding scene, what the community needs and who to assemble to make it happen. 

If you want to help support more great local riding, one way you can help right now is to join your nearest IMBA Org, or more than one if you want. Since IMBA introduced the multi-membership option, some folks are joining other riding communities in addition to boosting their close to home 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.
