Membership Benefits


  • Your membership dues help create more quality trails for you to use. This means you'll find new trails to explore.
  • Meet new people who love trails in the woods through the online Forum or at STAB events.
  • Having a strong local trail advocacy organization gives us a greater voice in issues important to trail users that will help with land access and landowner relations.
  • Learn how to properly build and maintain trails.
  • Improve your bike handling skills.

Dues Pay for:

  • Trail construction and maintenance. This is where the vast majority of the $ goes. We've now purchased over $1000 worth of trail tools, lumber and materials, and trail markers to post in STAB Mountainside. We also spend about $15-20 each trail work day on food and drink for volunteers. All of this comes together to make more miles of sweet, legal trails in the area.
  • IMBA and VMBA chapter dues, including our contribution to the VMBA Landowner Support Fund. These organizations support mountain biking on a broad scale, including interaction with the State and Feds to lobby for MTB-friendly policies. These two combined are about $200/yr.
  • This STAB website, becoming the central source for information about local trails.
  • Little miscellaneous stuff (postage, paper, ink, etc.)
