WHO WE ARE
Amelia Trail Builders Club Inc.
Amelia Trail Builders Club Inc. (ATBC) is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization. We raise funds for the continual repair and improvements at Amelia Earhart Mountain Bike Trails. We are comprised of mountain bikers with a shared passion of the sport and our trail system.
Over a span of 30+ years, our team of motivated volunteers have logged over 30,000 hours of planning, building, maintenance and repair time at Amelia Earhart Mountain Bike Trails.
