We are all about advocacy and promoting the sport. There are already plenty of great meetups for group rides that we want to encourage people to attend. San Jose Mountain Biking, South Bay Mountain Bikers, and Dirt Riders are a few of the larger groups that we also participate in.

We are all volunteers, not paid professionals. We give our time because of our love for the sport and belief that we can make a difference in our community. SVMTB is a tax exempt 501.c(3) organization. Your membership and donations are tax deductable. Our tax ID or EIN is 14-193 1867.
