About Us

Overland Mountain Bike Club is the premier mountain biking organization in the Northern Colorado and Southern Wyoming region, and a federally-registered 501c3 non-profit organization. We build trails, maintain trails, teach people how to ride, and patrol trails assisting all user groups. But mostly, we just like to get out and ride. Join us for a ride sometime.

Our Mission

Promote the active, healthy sport of mountain biking by providing education and assistance to all trail users, and by working to build and maintain quality, sustainable trails that enhance the mountain biking experience.
