We’ve divided memberships into Child, Youth, Adult and Guest categories. This makes it easier for large families to donate and support HMBA as the Child and Youth memberships are considerably lower. Even though the Child and Youth memberships cost less, all memberships receive the same benefits.
Memberships last for the entire duration of the calendar year the donation was made. The calendar year starts January 1st and ends December 31st. Donations made in 2017 include December 2017 and all of 2018 as well.
The Guest pass is for visitors to Hawaii. It’s good for 7 days from when you signup. Join as many rides and available activities as you want during your week!
The Hawaii Mountain Bike Association is recognized as a public charity and tax-exempt 501c3 organization. The Board of Directors, Officers and Volunteers are all non-paid volunteers. Not only may your donation be tax deductible but 100% of the proceeds are used locally to provide activities for members, run our charitable programs and promote the sport of mountain biking in Hawaii!
Thank you for supporting Mountain Biking in Hawaii and we look forward to seeing you on the trails!
Join us on our weekly guided rides. Never ride alone or get lost again! Each ride is led by one of our capable Ride Leaders who will keep the group together and on course. Experience new trails and meet new friends.
The more we improve our skills on the mountain bike, the more fun we have. It enables us to try new trails or ride the same trails with more confidence. Skill Clinics for beginner and intermediate riders will be taught by certified mountain bike skills instructors. As a member, you’ll receive a tremendous discount on the cost of the clinic.
Our goal is to create a healthy racing environment in Hawaii. This is no easy task but we believe that as a non-profit organization we now have the tools in place we need to accomplish this talk. We will be working with land owners to create consistent, affordable, fun races for our youth, young adults, and adults!
As long as your membership is current, you’ll be able to receive discounts at participating vendors and sponsors. These include discounts to races like the 24 Hours of Hell in Paradise and reduced prices for online Skills Clinics at MTB University. The Hawaii Mountain Bike Association is new but we are working hard to increase the number of participating vendors.
Help give back to the community by working with our local trail builders to keep our trails free of trees and flowing smoothly. The amount of work that goes into keeping trails enjoyable to ride is huge. We will schedule regular trail maintenance days and help spread the work out among more folks. Riding trail is awesome, riding trail that you’ve helped to build and maintain… more awesomer!
E-Bikes are a hot topic. Currently in Hawaii E-Bikes are considered motorized vehicles and therefore not allowed on most of the islands trails. HMBA’s policy reflects that of the State. Encouraging the use of E-Bikes on the trails would be in opposition to State policy.
One of HMBA’s main goals is to develop a friendly working environment with the State. One that promotes our mutual interests and allows us to work with the State to maintain trails and possibly build new trail. We feel it wouldn’t be morally right to try and build a relationship with the State while simultaneously opposing their policies in practice.
Having said that, we encourage any activity that helps keep people happy and healthy and we encourage the E-Bike community to band together and advocate for better trail access.
As the Hawaii Mountain Bike Association grows we plan to increase the number of activities available. Off-island mountain bike retreats, BBQ’s, movie premieres are just a few of the ideas we have in mind!
If you are signing up for multiple people (a family), you’ll need to click the appropriate donate button and complete the form for each one. The system doesn’t allow for simultaneous donations. We’ve tried to keep the amount of information needed to a minimum to make it as easy as possible.
If you have any questions regarding signup, please refer to the F.A.Q. at the bottom of this page.
