AMBA Launches New Website - and a Note on COVID-19

Updated: Mar 26, 2020

Welcome! We are very excited to launch our new and improved website. The website is your one stop shop for all AMBA news, events, merchandise, local trail information, and information about our local partners and favorite places to go.

On a more sombre note. Getting out on the trails is tremendously valuable. Trails bring us together, but to keep each other safe, we must keep our distance from one another. How can our community navigate this challenge? First and foremost, check with your local governments for information about stay-at-home orders and facility closures, including parks and trails. Refer to the CDC, Government of Newfoundland and Labrador website, and Government of Canada website for best practices on preventing the spread of COVID-19. Right now, protecting each other is more important than mountain biking. Staying home is essential to safeguard our communities and slow the spread of COVID-19. Our trails will be waiting for us. AMBA wants to make sure we will all be there for our trails. When looking for information on trail closure status, check with park, land manager and/or local government regularly for updates. This information is changing rapidly. Some governments have identified trails as essential facilities, others have closed parks and trails due to overcrowding. When in doubt: stay home. At the current time AMBA has no upcoming events. This will continue to be the case until we are advised that it is safe to do so. How do we use the trails together safely and practice social distancing? Stay alert, slow down, and communicate with each other from a distance about how to proceed. Better yet, take the initiative to yield and offer space. With gyms and rec centers closing, there may be new users on the trails. It’s a great time for community education on responsible riding and for being patient, exemplary stewards.

Many thanks for your diligence and discipline in this challenging time. Thank you for your support for mountain biking, trails, and AMBA. Stay healthy and stay in communication with one another. We’re all in this together.
