Black Rock Mountain Bike Association Give Back

Black Rock Mountain Bike Association Give Back Celebrating 20 Years of BRMBA

The Black Rock Mountain Bike Association (BRMBA) is celebrating its 20-year anniversary! As stewards of the Black Rock Mountain Bike Area they take pride in the trail network and what it provides the greater cycling community. Freehub is collaborating with great brands to give back to the Black Rock trail system and take it to an even greater level by hosting a virtual fundraiser to benefit BRMBA.

The Black Rock Mountain Bike Association is a 100% volunteer-run 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing, promoting, and creating the Black Rock Trails. The Black Rock Trails have a rich freeride heritage and continue to exhibit these roots while seeking to provide riders of all levels with a memorable and fun experience. They abide by an ethos of prioritizing community, trails, creativity, fun, and gnar.

Funds raised will benefit the BRMBA. They will be directed to building a future parking lot, pedestrian bridge, climbing trail, and six or more miles of new single track, as well as creating new community events and activities at the Black Rock Mountain Bike Area.

Each entry equals a chance to win a brand new Propain e-bike along with other prizes from Freehub!

Black Rock Feature from Freehub 15.2

As a self-aware species with a seemingly decent understanding of time, humans have a prodigious connection with the past. Our entire understanding of history is built on the knowledge of what happened before our own lives. This relationship, though, has profound implications.

As the late astronomer Carl Sagan famously said, “You have to know the past to understand the present.” In trying to understand the significance of a place and time within mountain biking’s history, it follows that we would seek to draw cosmic parallels with the world as we now know it.

The fire roads of Marin County’s Mount Tamalpais could be reminiscent of Stonehenge, a place where ingenuity tapped into newfound dimensions of the human psyche. The mind-bending wood skinnies of British Columbia’s North Shore might be akin to the Pyramids of Giza—so absurdly ahead of their time that some people believe they were built by aliens. The lines carved into Utah’s red rock spires for the inaugural Rampage freeride event in 2001 could be likened to the Great Wall of China, both feats where the scale of human capabilities were redefined.

Welcome to Issue 15.2

A unique blend of shared excitement and camaraderie that transcends mere thrill-seeking exists within the mountain biking community. In the latest issue of Freehub, we uncover the nuanced layers of connection that define our community. An in-depth report on the groundbreaking inclusion of women in premier slopestyle events and an exploration of the neurological foundations of mountain biking that promote healing and mental well-being are a few among many stories that delve into the diverse ways riders find unity and purpose. In a profile piece on Laura Blythe, a search for purpose leads to a blossoming love for mountain biking on the trails of Fire Mountain in the Qualla Boundary, home of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in North Carolina. These narratives highlight individual experiences that collectively shape our shared passion for mountain biking.

Dive in and explore the depth of community woven through the pages of Issue 15.2.
