MTBAs CEO Interview

Hi all,

This is worth a read if you have time  to summarise there will be a greater focus on coaching and development in upcoming years which Peel plans to be a part of.

Also note that it looks like day licenses will be going up a lot in price, so anyone planning to do more than a couple of events will need to consider MTBA membership strongly – this will cost you less but also add to the benefit of having membership to your local club – make it Peel of course! Benefits are long and include access to newsletters, events, supporting the work the club does in advocacy, trail maintenance, coaching and development, event organising etc.
