Announcing our 2024 Ambassador Team
The CAMTB Teen Ambassador program was developed in partnership with the NorCal Interscholastic Cycling League and the SoCal Cycling League. It provides a peer-based education model for high school junior and senior student-athletes interested in building their resumes while riding, connecting, and taking meaningful action with other California-based student-athletes. Combined, CAMTB is now engaged with 17 teen ambassadors from across the state who are supporting more and better bike-friendly trails in California! We believe next-gen engagement is the critical link, and a way for us, in our own small way, to ensure that the future of cycling, trails, and public lands remains bright.
Cohort 2 Ambassadors
2023 marked the launch of our Ambassador Team, which was developed to engage and train the next generation of advocates for cycling, trails, and public lands.

Cohort 1 Ambassadors
We’re also pleased to share that the first members of our ambassador team, all of whom are now high school seniors, will be staying on as ambassadors through the current school year. They will support CAMTB’s ongoing advocacy efforts, mentor our incoming ambassadors, and co-lead our Speak, Serve, Ride, Respect-themed training sessions.
We are so proud of these emerging leaders and the commitment and professionalism they have demonstrated these past 12 months. We look forward to supporting them on their path and through the next phase of their life, post-high school.
