Amador Mountain Biking Club
AMBC is helping Amador County youth learn the safe practices, skills, and etiquette to become lifelong riders and ambassadors of mountain biking. AMBC aims to instill youth with healthy lifestyle practices, empathy and graciousness towards all trail users, and active participation in making positive change in their community.
Started in 2023, AMBC is a USA Cycling-sanctioned club that will help kids improve their riding and, if desired, become competitive racers. AMBC will also work with youth in projects designed to aid and support the communities they live in. The 2023 season will go from June to October.

Community Rallies to Build Skills Track for AMBC Youth League
Youth from AMBC ride the newly formed track at a skills clinic hosted in June 2023
Recently, ATS partnered with some community partners to convert approximately half an acre of field on Jackson Gate road, belonging to the Mother Lode Land Trust, into a skills track and training facility for Amador Mountain Biking Club. The field was transformed to include rollers, berms, and balancing features thanks to donated labor and equipment from the folks at Booker Farms and Grady Landscapes. The track was shaped by volunteer hours from many helpful hands, including the folks from Coffee Tree in Pine Grove, parent volunteers, and a few dedicated local youth riders.
The site hosted a three-day introductory skills clinic for 22 of Amador's youth, helping them learn and develop mountian biking basics. in addition, participants were taught about health, welness, nutrition, mindfulness, excersice habits, and participated in skills based games at the clinic. We are grateful and thankful to our community of partners and volunteers for making this event possible.
With the continued collaboration of these partners and those to come, we are hoping to open this portion of C &C ranch as a park, accessible to the public in the near future. In it's current state, the track requires heavy maintenance after use, which our volunteer coaches perform between practices. With some upgrades to the site, such as building wooden features and armoring with Rock, we can prolong its life and reduce maintenace needs, offerering more miles of fun. If you are interested in helping us improve this facility in order to make it open to the public, please contact us. You can also donate directly to AMBC here.
