Addison County Bike Club is a chapter of the Vermont Mountain Bike Association or VMBA. Through them we receive 501c3 nonprofit status and a variety of support too. With VMBA you can become a annual member and select a Chapter/s to support. From there your $50 membership fee goes directly into the pockets of your chapter of choice. Plus, there’s a variety of perks for yourselves to enjoy.
VMBA is the umbrella non-profit that supports and advocates on behalf of 29 united chapters and over 6800 members.
Your membership accomplishes three critical outcomes for your riding:
- It supports the trail maintenance/building of your local chapter
- It supports a strong platform of administrative services that every chapter utilizes
- It helps supports the critical advocacy needed to protect your riding
Everyone is encouraged to be a member of more than one chapter through the “add-on” program. This membership option allows you to add additional chapters to your membership. Add-ons are a great way of showing support for all the networks you love to ride. 100% of add-on revenue goes to the chapters.
Membership packets include a membership card, velcro bike strip, welcome letter, member benefits list, coupons, and chapter inserts (stickers/letters/passes). Put the velcro strip on your bike – it shows other riders that you support the trails you ride.
VMBA strives to ensure all members receive their packets within 10 business days. The VMBA/Chapter membership season is April 1, 2020 – March 31, 2021
