Support the Trails with West Michigan Michigan Mountain Biking Alliance

We love riding. Central District Cyclery is all about mountain bikes, and the more trails we have, the better.

If variety is the spice of life, then we’ve got it made in our neck of the woods, and a lot of that is down to the hard-work of the West Michigan Mountain Bike Alliance. WMMBA and its volunteers maintain a dozen trails in area, from Hammond Hill to Yankee Springs to Luton and Merrell, they put in countless hours of work to maintain, protect, and expand trail systems in West Michigan.

All those trails and all that work adds up, and while there are plenty of trail days and work bees that offer you the chance to lend a hand, oftentimes the biggest thing you can do is join as an Ally. Adding your name to the roster lends strength to the organization, offers vital funds for things as simple as gas to as big and ambitious as the GR Bike Park!

Here at CDC, we donate $25 for every mountain bike sold at the shop. It’s just our way of helping to ensure that we all have a place to ride today, tomorrow, and for decades to come, but it’s just one part of the process. We encourage everyone who rides to join as an Ally, and stay involved with WMMBA as we build for the future!

For more information, make sure you head over to wmmba.org, where you’ll not only find out where to join, but also see the latest updates on trail conditions on the home page, check out events, and a lot more.

Support The Trails with Central District Cyclery and WMMBA

It's a new year, and we're really looking forward to so many rides, races, and unforgettable days on the bike. We're extremely fortunate to have some many different and diverse trail systems in West Michigan, and one organization to thank for it. West Michigan Mountain Biking Alliance helps build, maintain, and protect trails all over our region, and in doing so, they give us places to go out and ride year-round. 

WMMBA is our local International Mountain Bike Association chapter and works to advocate in the interest of mountain bikers at the local, state, and federal level. They also play a huge role in growing our mountain bike community through events and clinics. WMMBA's efforts are maintained primarily through membership dues and donations from people who just really love riding. 

In 2018, we've pledged to donate $15 for every mountain bike sold straight to WMMBA. We proud to join a number of local business that work to keep our trail builders building, and help to protect the unity of our mountain bike community by coming together to support the folks who support our trails. 

Any mountain, any time this season, and your new bike day will do everyone just a bit of good. 

You can help today by buying a bike, but if that's not happening soon enough, you can become a member of WMMBA and add your voice to the community. 

To learn more about WMMBA head here. Be sure to join us at Cannonsburg on Friday, February 9 to meet IMBA Executive Director and mountain bike legend Dave Wiens.
