It is indeed a new chapter in more than one sense. Redwood Coast Mountain Bike Association is a new chapter of cycling advocacy for Humboldt and Del Norte Counties, in northern California, and it is also a new Chapter of International Mountain Bicycling Association.
That’s right, as of June 12, 2014 RCMBA is officially a Chapter of IMBA. You may be asking yourself what that means. Well here it is in a nutshell. If you were a member of Bigfoot Bicycle Club, your membership was automatically commuted to RCMBA. If you are a member of RCMBA, you are also a member of IMBA. Conversely, if you are already a member of IMBA in Humboldt, or Del Norte Counties, but were not a member of Bigfoot Bicycle Club, you are now a member of RCMBA. Have I thoroughly confused all of you yet? I hope not.
As Bigfoot Bicycle Club fades into the background, RCMBA will pick up its traditional ride schedule. RCMBA will now be hosting the winter training and very popular Banana Slug series rides, will be hosting an annual Forks of Salmon ride, hosting trail work days on our local trails, and whatever fun events we can come up with.

Welcome to the new chapter.
