Endless Bike Camps:  

HMBA partnered with the TOH to bring Endless Bike Camps to Hinton.  July 28 to 31st.  This is an amazing opportunity for youth ages 10-17.  It doesn't matter how often you ride the park, you are never too good for a learning opportunity.  And this company has highly skilled and qualified instructor with amazing experience.  If your kid is hanging out at the bike park all the time, this is the clinic for them.  Give them the opportunity to ride the park, like it should be ridden...with mad skills.  Cost is $350 (for no childcare afterwards) and $390 if your child needs to be delivered and supervised at the rec centre after each day.  It is cheaper to register in person at the rec centre, as there will be no hidden fees (like there are when you register online).  Here are some links for Endless....http://www.endlessbiking.com  and  http://www.pinkbike.com/news/endless-biking-roots-2014.html

Sprockids:  

Starts on Thursday May 15th.  Registration is only $40 and you can register on our website or on the night of.  Meet at the Bike Park for 6pm (if your already registered, come a bit earlier if you still need to sign up).  The program is in need of coaches and volunteers, if you are interested in helping our youngsters learn to love riding, this is an opportunity for you.  Contact Tim at hmba.sprockids@gmail.com

Beaver Bike Fest:  

August 23 & 24.  That's right 2 days of awesomeness!  We are still searching for some key volunteers...Volunteer Coordinator (can be split between 2 people, all your doing is telling the volunteers where they need to be), Safety, and event coordinators (Dirt Jam, Downhill, skills, fun events).  Finally got a prize coordinator (thank you Colleen) and a food coordinator (thank you Christine).  Also, this is my last year organizing BBF, so if anyone out there would like to consider organizing it next year, this is a great time to get some hands on learning.  Contact Stacey hmba.events@gmail.com

Trails and Group Rides:  

Please refrain from riding when it's too wet.  Please come out for maintenance when you are able (Kevin will update the website when he is planning something).  And please feel free to organize the ladies or club ride when an exec is not there.  The exec is unable to attend every ride, every week, so hey, grab the bull by the horns and lead that group.  If there is really a need for a 'ride supervisor', then maybe someone could step up and offer to be the weekly supervisor.  Otherwise, pick a trail and ride hard.  Meet at the park for 6:45pm and be ready to ride for 7pm.  Trails are currently pretty dry, but please don't ride around the muddy sections as it widens the trail.
 

Apparel:

You can purchase your own wicked HMBA freestyle or turbo t jersey (cash only) at Vicious Cycle or Rocky Performance Machines (RPM).  Tell  your friends they can buy memberships at both locations (and the rec centre) as well.  As well, RPM has stepped up as a last minute membership card sponsor, offering a 10% discount on in-store apparel.
