The Whitehorse mountain biking club began as a unit within Yukon’s road cycling club, VeloNorth. However, as the mountain biking scene grew, it became clear that there was a need for a sister club that was dedicated to the needs and wants of trail riders. The Contagious Mountain Bike Club (CMBC) was formally established on May 8, 2007.
Why the name “contagious”? Because we feel that the enthusiasm we have for bikes is just that – transmittable to other people!
Our purpose then was the same as it is now: to promote all types of off-road cycling in the Whitehorse area. We also work hard to advocate for, and support efforts to maintain, grow and secure, our wonderful network of trails!
CMBC’s vision is to build mountain bike community and culture through volunteerism and partnerships. We envision a trail network that is sustainable, inclusive, diverse and most importantly, fun! CMBC is entirely volunteer-run; we are a registered not-for-profit society. We utilize funds to run our events and for event supplies, for trail maintenance equipment and supplies, and to support other organizations doing trail work, such as Singletrack to Success and the Youth Achievement Centre. All of our club events are designed to challenge all skill levels. No matter the skill, the desire is all the same. This club is welcome to all who would like to join.
