8 Years Strong


On November 30th, 2014,  the Hinton Mountain Bike Association's president, Jan Vassbotn, will be stepping down from his post.  Jan has given the club 4+ years as an executive member, with a number of those years as President. The current, and past executive, that have worked with Jan, want to give him a big THANK YOU for everything he has done to promote the HMBA, the Bike Park, and the sport of mountain biking in our region. In all honesty, it hasn't always been pretty and it hasn't always been fun, stress free work, but Jan poured heart and energy into making this club successful.  Thank You, we appreciate everything you have done!

HMBA has been very lucky!  Since starting in 2007, it has seen numerous dedicated members step up to the plate and volunteer their time on the executive and as directors and coordinators.  All these individuals deserve to be recognized!  In order of appearance between 2007 and 2014:

  • Kyle Madill
  • Nick Threinen
  • James Claggett
  • Jay Hore
  • Chris Lavoie
  • Stephen Hanus
  • Debbie Mucha

Thanks for a great 2014 season! Our membership numbers were the highest we have ever had. Every weekend, we seemed to be meeting someone new at the Bike Park, so our amazing backyard is getting recognized as a great biking playground. Beaver Bike fest was a success and the 2 day August format may stick (we will be looking for consistency on the dates as well).

Thank you to all current and past executive, members, volunteers, and sponsors, for making this club as great as it is. It really is a great thing to be a part of.

Have a great winter and don't forget to contact us if you are interested in sitting on the board or helping with Beaver Bike Fest organizing!
