Behind the success of NWTA is a whole team of people giving their time and talents to our mission. At our foundation, we are a volunteer trail stewardship organization, and volunteers touch every aspect of our work. See some of our opportunities to be involved below!

Join a Dig Day

Trails don’t take care of themselves! We almost always have a number of trail work days, or dig days, on our event calendar. No experience is necessary for nearly all of our dig days, and all ages and riding abilities are welcome. See our calendar for upcoming events, our waiver, and how to sign up.

Lead a Trail Crew

Trail Crew Leaders help determine what trail maintenance work needs to be done, and assist in instructing volunteers of all abilities how to accomplish the work at hand. If you’re interested in becoming a Trail Crew Leader, start by attending our Trails Sustainability Institute (TSI) and become certified to lead (see more on our Learn page). Contact [email protected] for more information.

Become a Ride Leader

Ride Leaders lead NWTA social rides: leaders, co-leaders and sweepers (riding at the back) are all often involved with social rides at all levels. Ride leaders are there to guide participants, and to assist if something unexpected happens along the way! Leading or helping with group rides is a fun way to find riding buddies, share enthusiasm for mountain biking, build community and grow the sport. View our Events Calendar to register for upcoming Ride Leader Trainings. If you are already a certified Ride Leader and are interested in scheduling upcoming rides for the 2023 season, please email [email protected].
