Quinte MTB an IMBA affiliated, volunteer-run club and a registered not for profit corporation. Quinte MTB has worked very hard to acquire a Land Use Agreement with Batawa Ski Hill and the Batawa Development Corporation. This land use agreement allows us to host events, group rides and maintain/build trails on the Batawa Property.
The goal of our club is to work with the local community, groups, and landowner to:
a. Promote and advocate for high quality mountain biking in Quinte West;
b. Design, construct, and maintain local mountain bike trails;
c. Organize social events, clinics and group mountain bike rides;
d. Fundraise for mountain biking related projects.

MEMBERSHIPS & DONATIONS:
Due to Covid-19, Quinte MTB will not be holding any in person meetings, group rides, large group trail building/maintenance events, or other social gatherings until further notice. If you think you will participate in these events once measures are lifted we suggest you buy an adult/family membership.
If you don't intend on attending any group rides or Quinte MTB hosted events/meetings, but you still wish to support the trails; we ask that you select the donation option, as the number of club "members" impacts our insurance premiums.
If you/your family members are purchasing a Quinte MTB membership you must complete an IMBA waiver for each family member HERE. Parents must complete the waiver for anyone under the age of 18.
If you are not a Quinte MTB member but you would like to come help with trail work you must complete the Batawa Summer Volunteer waiver HERE
Batawa Ski Hill is hosting our waivers for us now. If you have an account for the ski hill you will be prompted to load those account details to save you time when completing your waiver.
Recently Quinte MTB received a $5000 grant through the City of Quinte West's Community and Small Project Fund. These funds will be used to purchase trail building/maintenance tools and a storage shed. This funding will allow us to work more efficiently and allow our volunteers who do not have their own tools to participate in ongoing projects.
Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.
