CAMTB Inaugural Meeting and Presentation

Advocates at the Trails and Greenways Conference, April 2019

In 2019 at the California Trails and Greenways Conference, the CAMTB steering committee did a presentation and panel discussion about California Mountain Biking advocacy efforts. Out of that initial meeting the steering committee was formalized and with the information they needed from advocates around the state, began forming the organization.

The meeting was live-streamed on Facebook and archived for reference.

Mission Statement Formation

The California Mountain Biking Coalition sees itself as representative of its membership and those we aim to represent. To that end, to develop our mission statement we engaged advocates from around the State to weigh in on how our collective mission should be crafted to best serve the needs of all off-road cyclists in California.

We conducted the following poll:

After the poll was conducted, the steering committee sifted through the responses to come up with our mission statement and goals for the organization:

To improve and increase trail access for mountain biking throughout California by providing a unified statewide voice for organizations and individuals
