Why REMBA? – Abbie Durkee
“This is the ground floor of what will become a North Bay institution. Anyone who values mountain biking as a means to explore the outdoors, stay fit, or just have fun will benefit from the rise of REMBA. Come be a friend.”
Why REMBA? – Ben Donaghy
“What makes these trails so important to the conversation of environmental impact of mountain bikes is that these flowy luscious trails are beautifully integrated into the topography with gentle impact in a way that could dissolve just as quickly as they are formed… By joining REMBA you are not only backing up the work of advocacy but also aligning to a common respect and understanding to educate future generations on how to tread lightly”
Why REMBA? – Greg Fisher

Cheryl – Why REMBA?

Kelly – Why REMBA?
“People often think of participating in a sport as running faster, riding harder, getting out and training or doing an activity regularly. That is a big part of being good at the activity you are passionate about. Being involved in the aspects that make your pursuit possible are just as important and satisfying.”
Carlos – Why REMBA?
“One of the goals of the group is to share information and create an inclusive, interconnected network of mountain bikers. With numbers, we can be a force of positive change.”
Nick – Why REMBA?
“…in REMBA I see friends who wake up every morning and look in the mirror and see themselves as the answer to that future…”
“Our goal was simple, unify mountain bikers across the Redwood Empire for the purpose of trail stewardship, advocacy, and having a really good time while doing it.”
