Giving Back & Trail Maintenance
Your greatness is not what you have, but what you give.
Our club started on the core tenant that so long as we could ride we would also give back. In 2019 and beyond we're taking our goals to give back to new levels and we hope you'll come along for the ride.
Bikes for Kids
We love riding bikes and we want every kid to know the same thrill of riding. Our club raises funds through-out the year so we can purchase or repair bikes for kids that need them. You can get involved!
Nominate kids or organizations that we can donate bikes or bike repairs to.
Organize an event to raise funds.
thinkMTB is partnered with Share MTB to assist in trail maintenance days all over Orange County. We'll post opportunities to get involved on our Facebook Events page as well as here or in our online Forum.
Ride with bike bells! As trail usage increases so does our responsibility to be good trail stewards. MTB riders tend to ride fast. Riding with passive or active bells gives us the chance to warn other trail users, such as hikers, runners, and equestrian riders, that we're coming down the trail.
We've partnered with the OC Parks, Share MTB and Laguna Canyon Foundation to provide free bells at trails around OC to promote their use for early warning. A few of our members also carry bells around with them. If you see us on the trail, ask us for a bell! If you already have one or are considering one, just do it!
Bells are also highly recommended if you ride in bear country. Don't worry about the jingle. You get used to it.
