Announcing our 2023 Ambassador Team

Please join us in welcoming our first CAMTB Teen Ambassador Cohort!

Over the past CAMTB has been working in partnership with NorCal Interscholastic Cycling League and the SoCal League, as well as members of our trail stewardship community to craft a new program aimed at engaging the generation of leaders in trail and cycling advocacy. Now we’re ready to announce our first cohort of teen ambassadors!

The CAMTB Teen Ambassador program provides a peer-based internship model for junior and senior high school student-athletes that are interested in building their resumes while riding, connecting, and taking meaningful action with other California-based student-athletes.

This year, we received applications from a stellar group of young leaders and riders from across the state. The future of cycling looks incredibly promising. Thank you to everyone who applied. Congrats again to those there were selected this year, and we encourage those that weren’t to resubmit for 2024.

This year’s cohort members hail from as far north as Arcata and as far south as Chula Vista. All are juniors, and many have existing relationships with their local trail partners, including CAMTB affiliates Bicycle Trails Council of the East Bay, Sage Trail Alliance, Marin County Bicycle Coalition, San Diego Mountain Biking Association, Access 4 Bikes, and SF Urban Riders. We were incredibly impressed by their passion for riding, as well as activating their interest in advocacy for trails and mountain biking in California.
