Welcome to the club membership page for the Mad River Riders! We are the largest, oldest, best and only bike club based in the Mad River Valley. Join our club today!
The Mad River Valley (Waitsfield, Warren, Fayston, Moretown, Duxbury) offers some of Vermont’s most challenging climbs including the Appalachian Gap, the Lincoln Gap, the Roxbury Gap and the Moretown Gap. In addition to all that climbing we also have great technical single track riding and plenty of fun dirt roads. The club is fully integrated allowing both road and mountain bikers the benefits of membership!
The club has many activities in season including weekly road and mountain bike group rides, monthly road time trials, club social events, and also supports the Green Mountain Stage Race which is one of the largest stage races in North America. A number of club members participate in competitions (road, mountain, cyclocross or triathlon). There are always weekend rides of varying distances and speeds.
New Membership Model
Join the Mad River Riders and VMBA to support access, building and maintenance of over 600 miles of public trails in VT.
VMBA and the Mad River Riders are excited to introduce our new collaborative statewide membership program, giving riders a significant increase in benefits and access to trails. United, our legislative voice is strong, which is evident in the 10-year trail expansion plan with Forests, Parks, & Recreation.
Under the new collaborative model, individual membership will be $49 and $98 for families this year. All members will receive chapter and VMBA benefits, including over 65 deals in the member rewards book and access to over 600 miles of legal trails for the entire riding season.
This is an exceptional value and your participation is essential. Please visit https://vmba.org/membership to see a full list of member benefits and to take the first step to get ready for a long season of riding.

In addition to these rider benefits, the Mad River Riders continue to offer local benefits from area businesses along with group rides and social events.
