The Bicycle Trails Council of the East Bay was formed in 1987, and helped to create the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) in 1988. The work of BTCEB is essential in developing the mountain biking culture and keeping trails open for local mountain biking. The BTCEB group was established by the Bicycle Trails Council of the East Bay ( and is a tool for bringing us all, veteran and new riders, together for a great time.

By joining BTCEB you'll be supporting grassroots mountain bike advocacy, meet other mountain bikers, and learn about great trails to ride.

STAY INFORMED with our monthly electronic newsletter with all the latest events, trail work days, Youth Mountain Bike Adventure, Oakland Bike Patrol programs, social outings, and advocacy news.

VOLUNTEER FOR TRAIL WORK - it is sweat equity. Land managers appreciate reliable, competent volunteers.

COME OUT AND RIDE. We have a group ride calendar with over 1000 members and host several monthly rides. Our women-only ride, Ride Like a Girl, is on the 1st Saturday of the month. Our long-standing Youth Mountain Bike Adventure Rides roll from May to October the 3rd Saturday of the month.

Our marquee ride is the Monthly Gala Ride which occurs every 2nd Saturday of the month starting at 9:30am at one of the many East Bay parks. The Gala Rides are led by experienced local riders who know the trails and offer a group for all skill and fitness levels. Afterward, we regroup for snacks and refreshments. This is a great way to learn new trails and meet others from the east bay at your skill level.

We rely on your memberships to continue to work on issues that are important to you, JOIN BTCEB ONLINE.

Happy Trails!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
