6 Month Recreation Membership
To provide maximum flexibility we have temporarily introduced a 6 Month Recreation membership. This provides an alternative membership option during rcurrent estrictions which are impacting racing, and ensuring you are still covered with Personal Accident and Public Liability insurance whilst riding. The 6 month recreation membership is available when you take out or renew your membership online.
Family Membership
As COVID-19 restrictions begin to ease across each State/Territory, now could be the time to secure your family membership. Take advantage of our family membership discount that's available for three or more riders in the one household.

Return To MTB Activities
Earlier this month, MTBA released national guidelines for the return to mountain bike activities to assist clubs make decisions on resuming club activities. 

MTBA is developing state/territory specific return to mountain bike plans where these have been requested by government authorities.

Relevant authorities in each State/Territory determine when community sport and recreation can resume in their region. This is not determined by MTBA. 

MTBA's role is to provide recommendations/ advice to clubs on how activities can safely resume in a COVID-19 environment.

MTBA and State/Territory COVID-19 resources including State/Territory specific plans can be found here https://www.mtba.org.au/club/covid-19/
