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! Check out our upcoming rides, trailwork schedule, and connect with our members.

Current Projects

Heyward Community Forest

CAMBC has hired AAMPL Trail Construction to help with various phases of our work at Heyward. Recently 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.

Biscuit Run Master Plan

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.
