For over 20 years the Potawatomi Mountain Bike Association has worked to promote, build, maintain and protect the trails in and around Washtenaw County. Now Poto MBA has teamed up with IMBA and their Chapter Program which will allow them to focus efforts on advocacy and trail work while IMBA handle the details. Poto MBA strives to employ the highest standards of sustainable design and build natural surface singletrack trails that are low maintenance and fun to ride. They work closely with State and Local land managers to ensure that the decisions that affect our trails have representation from Chapter members and fellow riders. Whether it’s The Poto, Brighton, Ann Arbor, Ypsi or Canton your support will allow Poto MBA to continue to work hard to keep our trails ready to ride.

Members of the chapter communicate and meet regularly to discuss and plan the issues surrounding out local and state trail systems.  Chapter activities that are available to members include:

  • Chapter Meetings
  • Group Rides
  • Trail Maintenance Days
  • Fundraising Events
