The Southwest Montana Mountain Bike Association (SWMMBA) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that grew out of The Dirt Concern of Gallatin Valley Bike Club. Our mission is to enhance access to trails and advocate for mountain bicyclists in Southwest Montana. By engaging and educating community, working with public land managers, collaborating with other user groups and building and maintaining trails our volunteers are fulfilling that mission and becoming reliable voice in our region. We also build, maintain and advocate for trails that you can ride your bike on. Our Board of Directors is entirely composed of dedicated and hardworking volunteers.
In the summer of 2016, SWMMBA received recognition as an International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) Chapter. As an IMBA Chapter, we're tasked with creating, enhancing, and preserving great mountain biking experiences.
Picking up where the Dirt Concern left off, a group of Bozeman mountain bikers decided to organize a new group which not only builds and maintains trail but advocates for mountain bike access on public lands.

In the summer of 2016, SWMMBA received recognition as an International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) Chapter. As an IMBA Chapter, we're tasked with creating, enhancing, and preserving great mountain biking experiences. If you've ever been confronted by a trail sign that reads "NO BIKES" or visited an area where there's simply nowhere to ride then you know why IMBA's work is so vital. We care about trails and the environment by building sustainable trails and training land managers. Our network provides hundreds of thousands of hours of volunteer service and represents the interests of millions of cyclists. Locally, SWMMBA provides thousands of hours of trail maintenance, builds new trails, and advocates for your right to access public lands.
Individual and corporate donations help us to grow and improve. Your contribution will go directly to SWMMBA and provide funds that support trail building, advocacy, and maintenance in the immediate region.
