Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

BMA acknowledges that our community is not equally represented in mountain biking or access to open space and public lands. We acknowledge historic and current barriers such as socio-economic circumstances, and are actively working to ensure everyone feels welcome on Boulder County trails.


We recognize that the percentage of women, LatinX, and BIPOCs (Black, indigenous and people of color) who mountain bike is lower than the percentage in our population.


We strive to make mountain biking welcoming, inclusive and accessible to everyone in our community.


BMA actively supports women, LatinX and BIPOC riders to become volunteer Ride Guides and BICP certified Skills Instructors. We offer financial assistance and scholarships for training.
