Colorado Plateau Mountain Bike Trail Association

COPMOBA is a group of mountain bikers dedicated to the development and maintenance of regional mountain bike trails on the Colorado Plateau. Our main trails include Kokopelli's, Tabequache, and Paradox, and we also work on all mountain bike trails in the area and are always working to get new trails built.

COPMOBA has four established chapters and an informal chapter that work to get trails built in specific areas.  You can get involved directly in the organization in the area where you ride the most!  These links will connect you to the news that the chapters have to share.  

Grand Valley Canyons chapter covers Palisade, Grand Junction, Fruita, Loma, and Mack.
RAT/COPMOBA chapter covers the Ridgway Area Trails.
Uncompahgre chapter covers the Montrose area.
DAMB - Delta chapter - The Delta Area Mountain Bikers.  It's our newest chapter!
West End is our informal chapter that focuses on the Paradox Trail and other riding around the Nucla/Naturita/Norwood area.

Donations help COPMOBA accomplish great things for the trails and mountain bike community! Donations allow COPMOBA to build and maintain trails and to advocate for the trails and mountain biking. Thank you for supporting and aiding our efforts!

2014 is COPMOBA's 25th Anniversary!

A recent article in an online publication came to my attention today, and it is pertinent to me personally from a couple of different directions.  The topic of the article is electric bikes, and their burgeoning identification with mountain bikes.  You may have noticed that electric-assist bikes as a segment have become prevalent over the past couple of years in the US market.  These have been much more prevalent in the European market for many years, where a more active commuter and citi-bike culture exists.  While the majority of electric-assist bikes are intended for pavement use, there is a portion of the market that is moving into off-road type of configurations.  It's these off-road electric-assist bikes that I believe may create significant issues for the mountain bike and trail communities as they (IF they) expand in numbers and availability, and begin to be found on our current trails.  I am concerned about two main issues -  the physical impact that these machines may have on trails, and probably more importantly, the planning and land use impacts of the association of electric-assisted bikes with the human powered mountain bike.


COPMOBA turns 25!

2014 marks the 25th year for COPMOBA, and we are celebrating!  We've got lots to celebrate: hundreds of miles of trail, beautiful places to ride, lots of volunteers helping us make this place on the western side of the Rocky Mountains such a fantastic place to play!
