About Our Club

The Nelson Mountain Bike Club is a volunteer-driven organisation that works to improve mountain biking in Nelson, New Zealand, and surrounding areas.

Set up over 30 years ago we have a membership of over 3500, of all ages and abilities, and are active in all disciplines of mountain biking.

We have fun riding our bikes, we build and maintain a fantastic network of trails, we organise a wide range of events throughout the year and we advocate for Nelson's mountain bikers.

Big thanks to Sven Martin, Cam Moore, David Chadwick, and Corey Russ for the images we've used on this website.
