Why We Work


Hopefully you’ve been able to enjoy the beauty of California while gleefully riding the various trails. There’s a lot of magic out here, but there are many more secrets this state has tucked throughout the mountains, between valleys, from inland to the Pacific, and we’d like to discover those secrets ourselves. With big hearts, determination, and the willingness to sweat, we dig our ways, literally, to the vision of what we know mountain bikes can bring us to; community. We build so that we can know our land and neighbors, and hopefully build these trails together so that we can ride them together.


We once heard a coach say “they is you,” meaning that the “they” you may be thinking about doing all this work is actually you. Without maintaining pre-existing trails and without exploring new opportunities, anything we already have or dream to have vanishes. Make no mistake that any sweet berm, rock garden, bridge, or flow trail wouldn’t be there if it weren’t for hardworking and excited individuals coming together to provide a great riding experience for folks like us.


Upcoming Trail Work Days

Six Sigma Trail Work Day



One day of trail work and pre-riding the Six Sigma Course

The NorCal League and REMBA are happy to announce Coaches and Student-Athlete trail work day. REMBA and NorCal will be hosting a trail work/pre-ride and BBQ at Six Sigma Winery. We will start the day out by cleaning up the trails at Six Sigma, followed by a sponsored lunch from REMBA/ NorCal League. Following lunch, we will have plenty of time to put our work to the test. We will have plenty of time to ride the course and get familiar with the terrain. Open to the first 35 people to RSVP.


Any amount of time you’d be willing to donate to one of our Trail Work Days is greatly appreciated! All of our work days will be listed on our calendar, but feel free to reach out with any questions (vanessa@norcalmtb.org).


We’ll supply: Tools, gloves, safety glasses, high-fives!


You’ll bring: Strong work ethic, hat, sunscreen, water, and snacks.
