Advocacy Committee

 The Advocacy Committee is the largest gathering of SDMBA volunteers and is an active forum for all committees, Board Members, invited parties, and the curious to gather and discuss challenges, opportunities, and fun times relating to mountain biking in San Diego. Members of the public are welcome to come and discuss issues and advocate for trails for all non-motorized trail users. Food and beverages are often provided with a small donation request to cover costs and pickup. Advocates find and address issues of access throughout the area, organize letter/email campaigns, work with liaisons to resolve conflicts and legal problems.

To volunteer for the Advocacy committee or to learn more, please come to an Advocacy Committee meeting or contact Ben Stone at
