Retailers help create, preserve and enhance great mountain bike experiences
Retailer Members like these are vital because they operate where IMBA mountain bikers live and ride. When you join IMBA you help improve bike access and build new trails for you and your customers.
Retailer Membership includes optional dual-membership to your local IMBA chapter (where available).
Retailer Membership starts at $100/year per store location, for specialty retail businesses. Membership dues are shared with your local chapter to improve riding for your customers and to support IMBA's mission of creating great mountain biking everywhere.
National Bicycle Dealers Association (NBDA) members qualify for a 25% discount on IMBA Retailer Membership for each location. The NBDA is a non-profit association for US specialty bicycle retailers committed to helping retailers offer great products and services, and promoting bicycling both on and off-road.
