CAMBC is a local chapter of the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) based in Charlottesville, VA. Our goal is to promote sustainable multi-use public trail systems within Charlottesville and surrounding counties. We emphasize responsible trail use and bicycle safety. We strive to foster positive relationships with other trail users, clubs and municipal and federal land managers. We also ride bikes! Join us to build and ride in our local community.
CAMBC has hired AAMPL Trail Construction to help with various phases of our work at Heyward. Recently a new contour trail has been put into the very steep terrain of Song Mountain. CAMBC volunteers turned out in HUGE numbers to get the finishing work done on the new section. There is plenty more to do out out at Heyward, stay tuned. If you see trail closure signs, please obey them, as there may be excavator work happening.
Albemarle County began phase 1 of the Biscuit Run Master Plan. CAMBC is involved in design of new mountain bike and multiuse trails in the park.
Preddy Creek is situated on 571 acres of wilderness north east of Charlottesville. Preddy Creek has 16 miles of multipurpose trail used by hikers, equestrians, and mountain bikers. Trails are well marked, and following the Preddy Creek Outer Loop will get you back to the parking lot. Preddy caters to cyclists, runners, and hikers of varying skill levels, from beginner to advanced.
This 980 acre park contains 7 miles of trail around the Charlottesville Reservoir at Ragged Mountain. These trails are ideal for intermediate to expert riders. Go prepared, as this loop goes around the entire reservoir, and there is only one point of entry and exit.
Nearby trails at Roundtop, and Heyward Community Forest add to the elevation and distance. Warm up on Creekside and ride past flowing waterfalls.
