Your home for mountain biking in the Shawnee National Forest

Who we are!

SMBA is a non-profit organization founded in 1993 by a few dedicated cyclists that wanted to make certain there was a future for mountain biking in the Shawnee. Please register in the Forum to participate in discussions ranging from trail riding, trail work, racing, and general cycling fun.

SMBA Mission and Goals

  • Bring together cyclists that have a common interest in trail stewardship and advocacy.
  • Promote responsible mountain biking through adopting the International Mountain Biking Association's (IMBA) rules of the trail.
  • Organize events that increase awareness of mountain biking in the Shawnee.

We ride all year

From Dirty South gravel rides in the fall/winter/spring to frozen toes mountain bike rides to sweat fests in Summer, we ride all year round.
