HBMBA Corporate Memberships

Cycling Shops & Retailers
One of the primary goals of the Hamilton Burlington Mountain Biking Association is to develop strong working relationships with local bike shops. These retailers are a central component of the mountain bike community; providing not only equipment and maintenance, but also mountain bike education, communication and social networks. By working cooperatively, the HBMBA and retail businesses can develop a strong and cohesive mountain bike community and work with regional land owners to expand and enhance the off-road cycling trail network.

HBMBA plans to assist partners by:

  • Promotion on the HBMBA web site and at special events
  • Promotion on trail head signs and trail markers where available
  • Bike retailers: Adding partner's social events, courses and group rides onto the website calendar
  • Growing regional interest in cycling
  • Working with land managers to enhance the trail network

Partners can assist the HBMBA by:

  • Promoting HBMBA to customers
  • Providing feedback and guidance on the HBMBA’s growth and development
  • Selling HBMBA memberships at the store (Bike retailers & industry partners)

Your partnership with us will assist with the following:

  • The cost of Trail Building and Directors & Officers insurance
  • Operational costs
  • Tools and accessories for trail building
  • Web and marketing materials
  • Events
