Thank you for supporting CIMBA’s mission and activities. We can’t make it happen without YOU!
The Central Idaho Mountain Bike Association (CIMBA) was created in 1997 by a small group of mountain bikers who wanted to ride together, work to improve trails, and create new riding opportunities in the area. As the popularity and value of those activities grew, so did CIMBA’s membership. CIMBA became an IMBA club and hosted several Trail Care Crew visits. The trailbuilding knowledge from those events is now evident by the improved trails in the region. CIMBA’s efforts helped create many new trails in the area including those at Bear Basin, Jug Mountain and Tamarack Resort.
In 2009, CIMBA grew its focus to include educating user groups on safe cycling practices, developing land and user codes of conduct and protecting resources with responsible usage standards, and engaging and educating our members in current policy issues relating to mountain bike and trail access.
The original emphasis on trails is still in place, and CIMBA is working with regional Forest Service offices and private land managers to maintain and create better riding opportunities.
