Bike Hinton

We are SUPER excited to announce the donation of $15,000 from Pembina Pipeline Corporation's Community Investment Program. This amazing donation has funded our newest trail in the Hinton Bike Park, unofficially named "Pembina Sprockids Trail".

This BIG cheque was presented by Clint Walker, of Pembina Pipeline, to Jay Hore (HMBA President) and Julie Duval (HMBA Treasurer). Jay Hoots from Hoots Inc., and his crew were hired to build this sweet new trail. Hoots Inc. has also donated over $3,000 of labour towards the building of the Pembina Sprockids Trail. Revenue accumulated from our Hinton Sprockids Program registrations and donations have also contributed to this trail build.

The trail is over 600m of gently sloped terrain and is suitable for younger bikers and novices.

Thank you Hoots Inc. and crew for this new addition and THANK YOU Pembina Pipeline for investing in our community!!!

A new trail well suited for riders of all abilities!

A Group Who Deserves our Thanks!

Bike Hinton

The Hinton Mountain Bike Association (HMBA) is driven by volunteers who want to maintain and continue improving our awesome mountain biking playground in Hinton.  All the work done at the Hinton Bike Park or on our single track trail systems is made possible by the efforts of HMBA's volunteer board, HMBA member volunteers, community volunteers, partnerships with municipal and provincial governments, and partnerships with local businesses and industry.

HMBA relies on memberships, volunteers, grants and donations to make this all happen!   The Board is always grateful for all the support and we love to broadcast such great news via our social media outlets.   

There is a group of supporters that are not always to the forefront of our thank yous: the Anonymous Donors.  You know who you are!!!   At the Hinton Bike Park, on the main seacan door, there is a donation box.  And every year, a sum of money is accumulated from folks wanting to contribute to our efforts in making "bikehinton" great.

Since it's installation in 2013, over $850 have been contributed via this donation box!!

Well, Anonymous ContributorsTHANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!

We're stoked that you are enjoying the park and our trails and have contributed to it's continued success!!  We hope you keep coming and enjoying our playground!  And don't forget to sign in our log book!

Hinton RBC Branch Staff Volunteers at the Bike Park

Bike Hinton

Six staff members from Hinton's RBC Branch came out on June 8th to volunteer their time.  They came with smiles and ready to work - it was so great to have such wonderful volunteers!  A lot of work got done, despite the dark clouds looming on two sides of the town.  Unfortunately, after an hour, the first lightning was seen in the sky, and was soon followed by more.  These ladies quickly finished up what they were doing, and got out of the park in the nick of time!  The skies opened with heavy rain, more lightning and nearby thunder.  It was quite the storm!

The RBC staff volunteer their time to local groups such as HMBA and in return, their employer grants $1,000 towards that same group.  HMBA has been a recipient of this generous "double" donation in the past and we want to thank these wonderful volunteers for their time and for choosing our association as a worthy group to support!

The old maps on the main kiosk were taken down and the wood given a fresh coat of varnish.   Unfortunately, because of the incoming lightning storm, there was no time to place the new maps!  10 more minutes was all we needed!

These ladies glued our new signs to plywood.  Thanks so much for the help!
