For those of you who have been on my contact list for Ellijay Mountain Bike Association and are not a member of IMBA. You will still receive my emails and are most welcome to join us on our rides and workdays, but I am shamelessly trying to recruit you to join! Here are the:
TOP TEN REASONS TO JOIN EMBA
- Because EMBA was the 2010 Gilmer Chamber of Commerce Business Member of the Year. Recognizing that we have an economic impact by keeping trails maintained and advocating for better trails for our visitors from all over the country and world and for the enjoyment of our residents.
- Receive 10% off on accessories at the Cartecay Bicycle Shop.
- 40% of membership fees comes back to our chapter.
- Be a part of building new “state of the art” beginner trail.
- Help our local community to become economically and environmentally sustainable.
- Who else has Nightmare for a mascot?
- Automatically be part of a Volunteer Agreement with the US Forest Service – or you get to fill out a bunch of forms every time you volunteer for trail maintenance on FS land.
- We are the club that takes care of the best trails in North Georgia.
- Who else gets to say “I am an EMBA MEMBA”!
- Most importantly be a part of a larger community of Mountain Bikers who advocate for keeping our trails open and building new and better trails.
For all of you that are EMBA members – I thank you. For those who are members of other Chapters – keep it up. And those of you who are not – please consider becoming an EMBA – Memba!
