Dirt Camps

Parents often wish to carpool out to camp with other parents in their area. Because we are still operating within a pandemic, carpooling is currently discouraged. We look forward to a future where we can resume sharing space and reducing the impact on our planet!

 

Trail Work Parties

Sure, as long as they’re well behaved and happy to hang out on the trail with a bunch of other people and dogs. In fact, we encourage you to bring your kids out and make a family day of it!

 

Dirt Camps

Mountain bike camp is a closed learning environment; therefore, anyone not registered as a camper is not allowed to come to camp to ride along. You are free to ride the park yourself during camp hours, but may not join camp. This is to keep all campers’ safe, focused, and engaged.

Donations

Yes. Be sure to select your preference in the 'Chapter Designation' field when you make your donation online or mention it to us when donating via phone.

Membership

Yes. Simply choose the chapter when you join or renew. If you’re already a member, and would like to support a particular chapter going forward, contact us.

COVID-19 and Evergreen Programs

Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance is monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely following guidelines by the CDC, State Government, and local jurisdictions. Our number one priority is the health and safety of our community, trail builders, volunteers, students, and instructors. This page will be kept up to date with the latest information regarding programs, events, and volunteer opportunity restrictions and guidelines. Specific questions should be directed to the contacts listed below.
 
As a nonprofit , Evergreen's first and foremost priority is to be a responsible leader in the mountain bike community, our members and volunteers, and other trail users. To do our part to keep our community safe and healthy, and in accordance with guidelines from our government partners, Evergreen requires all work parties volunteers to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Fully vaccinated means that a person is at least 14 days post-completion of  an FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccine. If you would like to volunteer independently or learn more, please reach out to us at questions@evergreenmtb.org.
 
COVID-19 ESSENTIAL ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA
 
All individuals participating in Evergreen’s in-person programming must acknowledge and be capable of performing the following functions in order to protect themselves and others from the risks of spreading COVID-19. If an individual cannot perform or is unwilling to follow the following criteria, Evergreen reserves the right to ask the individual to leave the program area and dismiss the individual from future participation.

All participants, volunteers, staff, etc. must:

  • Be COVID-19 symptom-free within the 10 days prior to participating in an Evergreen activity; complete daily health survey before entering an Evergreen program area (i.e. symptom chart, temperature, etc.)
  • Confirm no contact with individual displaying COVID-19 symptoms within the last 14 days
  • Be able to maintain 6ft physical distance
  • Be able to wear a facial mask during program engagement (per the WA State Dept. of Health guidelines and CDC)
 
All participants, volunteers, staff, etc. will be expected to:
  • Wear a mask anytime close contact (less than 6ft) is required, including during any bike checks, times when you're stopped for discussion, or if you come into contact with other trail users.

Education, please contact Kristen McCune
 
We appreciate your understanding during this challenging time for all of us.

Classes

For the most part, yes. Classes will be cancelled for severe weather only, such as heavy rain, high wind, or temperatures below freezing. Light rain is fine. If there is rain or stormy weather, please check the website and/or your email the day of the class to see if the class has been cancelled. If your class is cancelled, you can either apply the fee to another class, maintain a credit for future use, or receive a refund.

Membership, Classes

You do not have to be a member to participate in Evergreen MTB classes. Evergreen members receive a substantial discount on all education program classes, clinics, and camps, just one benefit of having a membership. For intermediate to advanced classes, the discount on classes for members equals the cost of an individual membership. So sign up today and get discounts on future classes and much more! You can go here to join!

Trail Work Parties

Nope. Our Trail Crew Leads will be there to teach you the ropes, guide you, and answer any questions.

Membership, Trail Work Parties

No. You just need to be a FREE registered user on our site. Go here to register.

Membership, Donations

No, not automatically because those are on two different systems.  If you'd like to have your donation count towards a membership, please email BryanR@evergreenmtb.org to be added manually.   If you’d like to simply start or renew your membership, please go to our membership page.

Classes

No. A rigid frame or hard tail bike is perfectly fine.

Classes

To cancel, please notify us at clinics@evergreenmtb.org . If you give us a minimum of 72 hour notice, we can issue a credit or move you to another class. Credits must be used during the same education program year.

Dirt Camps

The best way is to get in touch is via text message to the Camp Lead (number will be provided prior to camp via email). You may also text or call your campers cell phone directly. However, keep in mind that cell phone going off while riding is distracting, and we will have riders silence their phones during drills and trail rides. They will have the opportunity to check their phones during snack, lunch and prior to the end of the day.

If you need to contact all ride attendees, here's how to do it (it's a bit cumbersome at the moment but we're working on a more user-friendly solution).

Please note you must be logged in to perform these steps:

  1. On the event page: highlight and copy (Ctrl+C or Cmd+C on Mac) the attendees' usernames
  2. Click on the "My" button at the top >> Private Messaging
  3. On the Private Messaging screen: click on the Compose link
  4. In the Compose form: click into the "To" window and paste the usernames (Ctrl+V or Cmd+V on Mac)
  5. Add commas between the usernames, e.g.: MtnPavlas, biker1, woodyallen
  6. Type the message
  7. Click on "Send"

Note: If you are NOT the event organizer and want to send a message to all attendees, including the event organizer, you need to copy/paste (or simply type) his/her username into the "To" field as well (you can find it in the event header).

Classes

Our instructors will notify you by email. We also post cancellations on our schedule page. Please check the schedule if it is raining the day of class.
