Albuquerque Mountain Bike Association (AMBA) is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to making Albuquerque a better place to ride by supporting social rides, trail maintenance and building, fund raising, taking kids mountain biking, advocacy and supporting other local bike groups in the ABQ area. We consider ourselves more than just a Meetup group. AMBA has a governing board consisting of a president, secretary, treasurer, website/IT/social media representative, Meetup coordinator, and other consulting board members.
