Your local advocacy

Shredward’s List: The Web’s best resource for local/regional mountain bike clubs, advocacy groups, (useful) rider blogs and stuff like that.

Beyond my rantings, I want this site to be a go-to resource for grassroots sites out there. Help me out Mt. Shredward Riders! I’m sure I’ve missed a lot of groups and sites since I can only go through so many pages of Google searches. Email me if you want to add a link.

And while I’ve got ya, do some freakin’ trail work! There are a ton of groups on this list that organize that kind of thing, or at least know who to talk to about volunteering. Trust me, a sore back never felt so good.

Note: I won’t put tour companies or subscription based trail guide sites on the list. But I’d be happy to post some banners if you email me about buying some ad space.
