We are high desert and have a 12-month riding schedule. Call us spoiled. Our monsoon season is late summer, and our winter runs from December - March with temps in the low 40′s ("cold" snaps to the low 30′s). The hot months are mid June - late September with some hot spells thereafter. But it's a "dry" heat (yeah, like an oven my mom says). Early morning and night rides are very common during the hot months, so bring your lights! Our trail networks vary in many ways and our geography is typically dry and rocky. They are their own style that is unlike anywhere else. Other parts of North America have soil and terrain that are recognizable just from photos. So are ours. We are an ancient basin for a long ago ocean, so when you are riding trails don't be surprised if you come across a fossil or two from that former sea. But don't fret, the trails are wonderfully kept and there is a trail for everyone.
Now, WHO we are. SNMBA is the Nevada chapter of the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA). We're a trail advocacy group who works closely with all the local bike groups, shops, riders, adventurers, conservationists, hikers, county and state officials and the Bureau of Land Management to enhance the availability and use of the beautiful Nevada country side. We're also just a really cool group of Mountain Bikers who enjoy fellow riders, revelry, group rides, races and trail building.
