Where does my support go?

Trails. Always trails. NWTA actively builds and maintains trails. We commission professional trail builders and designers, we buy and maintain machinery to build trails, and we spend money on hand tools for volunteer work crews. We are always saving up for the next trail project.

Create a cohesive mountain bike community. NWTA fosters a culture of stewardship and community for mountain bikers.  We strive to offer leadership opportunities and social ride events that bring people together to further our mission and strengthen our community.

Build a sustainable organization.  Beyond expanding and diversifying our funding sources, we will seek out industry leading contributors to help us attain our goals. Sponsors are a vital part of the community.  We are always looking to recruit and retain highly qualified board members to help drive our organization forward.

Enhance mountain bike access in the greater Portland area.  We will never stop working to bring more trail access to our largest membership base: Portland. Look to our recent successes with Portland Parks and Rocky Point as evidence of our commitment to creating a diversity of trails for all types of riders.
