Our Mission

To promote and create mountain biking opportunities in Missoula and surrounding areas through trail building, stewardship, advocacy, and outreach

Our Vision

We envision a Missoula where mountain bikers are the most thoughtful, informed, and engaged group of users on the trail. We envision a progressive, forward-looking trail system that connects western Montana communities; bike-specific trails on public land; and land management that embraces mountain biking as a trusted partner and valuable presence. We envision a future in which local leaders understand and invest in trails-based recreation, and where our work will provide benefits well beyond our membership. Quite simply, we envision a Missoula made better by trails.

Our Values


We create an inclusive social fabric that brings the mountain bike community together.



We serve our community by connecting and educating our membership while creating and maintaining our trail networks. 


We collaborate to plan trails with land managers and other trail user groups to work towards achieving the community's vision of a comprehensive trail network.



We bring a history of successful trail project work, including navigation of the public processes required to build and maintain trails and the expertise necessary for fine-grained design and project management.



We are committed to building a solid foundation that fosters leadership, trust, and fiscal responsibility for the future.
