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.
