WHAT WE DO
Whatcom Mountain Bike Coalition (WMBC) is a non-profit organization. We work with many diverse groups in and around our beautiful city of Bellingham, Washington to promote continued and expanded trail access for all in our vibrant community.
Every year WMBC coordinates thousands of volunteer hours for the many trail systems in our area, as well as youth outreach, and education. We also coordinate the design, construction, and maintenance of the Civic Field Dirt Jump Park, Whatcom Falls Pump Track, and the Waterfront Park Pump Track with our volunteers and members.
We believe in strong youth involvement; we work with the Bellingham, Meridian, Ferndale, and Skagit School Districts directing after school ride programs. We partner with Vamos Outdoors Project to give Latine youth in Whatcom and Skagit Counties the experience of mountain biking on Galbraith and riding the Waterfront pump track. The Youth Trail Corps (YTC) consists of middle and high school youth focused on the science of building and maintaining trails as a part of mountain biking. Youth involvement fosters a continuation of this community for many years to come.
WMBC maintains a Recreational Use Agreement with the owners of Galbraith Mountain and the City of Bellingham. WMBC is responsible for all trail maintenance and construction on Galbraith Mountain, as well as supporting the maintenance of trails on the Chuckanuts and Stewart Mountain. All trail operations are conducted within the guidelines established by the land-use agreement.
