What we're about

The San Diego Mountain Biking Association (SDMBA) is a nonprofit, volunteer driven organization representing the interests of off-road cyclists and other trail users in San Diego County. SDMBA's goal is to unite mountain bike riders, retailers and manufacturers to speak with a coordinated and responsible voice in dealing with other trail users, land managers and policy makers.

Our volunteer activities and events have been severely impacted by the COVID 19 pandemic. We are working with our partners and land managers to get extra protocols in place for our 20-21 work season which should begin in the early fall.

We also like to get out to improve our trails and to ride......join us!
