Michigan’s Edge Mountain Bike Association

Spring ‘19 – The West Michigan mountain bike community is gaining ground for access.

Don’t ride mud! Keep the community and others in mind during the early season/mud season, so that all may enjoy when things dry out for riding your local trails.

And, if it’s an option, please consider a donation to one of your favorite trails as a way to pay it forward to friends and family – thank you in advance!
