Join the Austin Ridge Riders!

The Austin Ridge Riders is a nonprofit organization and a Charter Club of the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA). When you join IMBA and indicate Austin Ridge Riders as you local chapter you will become a member of the Austin Ridge Riders Mountain Bike Club!

If you are new to riding or to the Austin area, ARR is a great place to make new friends and gain a sense of belonging to the community. We don’t just ride. We love to eat, camp, swim, paddle and socialize. Mountain biking is part of a healthy lifestyle so we are happy to help motivated each other, provide moral support and even push someone off the couch is needed. And if you are an experienced rider, know all the area trails and have dozens of riding buddies, you can still support the only cycling club in Austin that actively builds and maintains area trail with a membership and participation in trail work events.

We won’t deny that there is immense pleasure to be found in solitary rides or riding with a few good buddies. It is, in fact, how most of us get started. But in addition to there being safety in numbers on the trail, riding with more experienced riders makes you a better rider, sooner.

Take the plunge and click on the Membership tab for more information on our membership types, cost and methods of payment.  Ride long, ride short, ride hard, ride for fun. Just ride!
