We rely on an active group of volunteers and members to develop, build and maintain a sustainable trail network for all to enjoy. By joining, you can:
How to join
You can join Cape Mountain Bikers via the Mountain Bike Australia (MTBA) membership program. You can sign up for both memberships simultaneously by going to mtba.asn.au/membership/ and nominating Cape Mountain Bikers as your club during the application process. MTBA also offers free trial memberships - check their site for details.
Benefits of MTBA membership
MTBA is the peak body for mountain biking in Australia, and obtaining MTBA membership comes with a bunch of benefits, including:
For a full list of benefits, check out mtba.asn.au/membership/member-benefits/.
I'm already a member of the MTBA with another club - can I add CMB membership to this?
Not currently - since we process membership via the MTBA registration services, you can only nominate one club on your MTBA membership. Your MTBA membership lets you change your affiliated club, but not add additional ones.
Can I join Cape Mountain Bikers without getting MTBA membership?
Not at the moment. We're working on our membership program and will try and set something up, but for now doing it via the MTBA is the simplest option - plus, hey, you get all the added benefits of MTBA membership!
Can kids join?
Sure they can! They can be signed up via the MTBA website, and you nominate CMB as the local club during the sign-up process. Kids who participate in our Grassroots program need to have MTBA membership to provide them with insurance cover.
Can I join the CMB Facebook page without being a paid-up CMB member?
Yep, for sure. Our Facebook page is the go-to spot for day to day news, updates, info on weekly social and group rides and more. Simply go to the page and request to join (obviously, you need a Facebook account for this).
