May your road bikes be lubed and your road running shoes be laced this weekend. If you're not a Trail Supporter, but still want to be, come for a virtual visit at www.edmmtnbike.ca/ ... See MoreSee Less
Perfect weather for the weekend!
I renewed mine 2wks ago, still patiently watching the mailbox for it 👍
See a trail feature that needs some TLC? That mud spot that never quite dries? Report It with the new (mobile friendly!!) feature on our website, www.edmmtnbike.ca For other issues that require city intervention such as illegal camps or litter, use the 311 app or visit 311.edmonton.ca/ to report.
We are not yet able to resume trail work due to COVID but we're doing our best to pre-plan our trail work so that we can complete it when safe to do so.
Here's some other good guidance on staying active and healthy during this pandemic

When trail work resumes, what’s the skills/requirements you look for in people that want to help out?
Yes I’d like to know as well ^^^
EMBA just checked the weather forecast and WOW - it looks like winter finally decided stop being a bully and give spring a turn! With that though comes the unfortunate inevitability of spring thaw.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, EMBA will not be able to complete any trail work for the coming months (at best). We need your help to let the trails drain and dry so that as soon as they're ready we can enjoy them again and continue to enjoy them for years to come.
Remember that just like a fed bear is a dead bear, a rutted trail is a gutted trail. ... See MoreSee Less
Unfortunately there will always be people who feel they are more important and will ruin in for the rest of us 🤬
So, what do you guys do for maintenance? I wouldn't mind spending the day alone in the woods cleaning up.
Are the trails dry yet?
Edmonton Mountain Bike Alliance is feeling thankful.
The paved multi-use trails are being used more than ever. If you are one of those users, please read on and share with your family and friends who may also be using the multi-use trails.
Cyclists: All bikes must have and use a bell. When passing others, slow down and ring your bell. Once it is safe to do so, slowly pass at a safe distance with a simple “Thank You”.
All trail users: Acknowledge that you heard the bell with a wave or a smile. Move to the right and allow the cyclist to pass. The bell does not mean “Get out of my way”, it is to alert trail users that a cyclist wants to SAFELY pass. By simply doing this, we can prevent an accident from happening.
Together we can play safe and out of the emergency rooms during these times.
EMBA gives a HUGE Thank You to all our frontline workers for doing what you do. ... See MoreSee Less
It’ll help if you don’t wear sound reducing headphones when walking or running on the trails...that way you’ll hear the bell.
Don’t be afraid to say hello if they don’t hear your bell either. They’ll appreciate the heads up!

2020 Trail Supporter cards are now available through www.edmmtnbike.ca/. This year we have been able to garner the support of several local retailers and restaurants offering special discounts to card carrying Trail Supporters. Terms and conditions for each establishment will be defined by each business and are subject to change. New to 2020, we will also be more active sending out emails to the Trail Supporters discussing what EMBA is accomplishing in terms of trail maintenance and ambassadorship with relevant businesses and land owners including the City of Edmonton.
Another way to earn your Trail Supporter card is to volunteer at a Trail Day. A Trail Day can be an Open Trail Day, through your cycling club, or with a group of pals and EMBA's help organizing the proper permits. Unfortunately for now, all trail days are on hold until further notice to help the protect the health of all volunteers and their families.
Thank you all again for all the continued support! ... See MoreSee Less
How can I get a card? The link supplied does not work.
Six F'n Riders were out last Friday morning earning some City approved Trail Karma in Mill Creek. They trimmed 820 meters of trail and removed 6 rather large trees by hand, from above and across the trails. Thanks guys! ... See MoreSee Less
