who we are

Mountain bikers are passionate about creating and sharing trail experiences. A completely volunteer-led movement has independently founded 16 mountain bike organizations throughout Oregon.

The OMBC is made up solely of representatives from these organizations. These representatives work together, at the direction of their members, to democratically develop stances, policy, strategy, and improve mountain biking in Oregon.
