CKMBC Mission Statement and Chapter Origins,

 

CKMBC's mission is to promote mountain biking awareness through organized events, trail building, and kid advocacy projects.  To keep the projects and governing on the local level, CKMBC is made up of smaller district chapters.  Presently we have three different chapters, as our numbers grow and expand more chapters may be added.  The three current chapters and areas they originate from are as follows.

 

Team LATR is the cornerstone of the club.  LATR is based in Lindsborg KS, but has members ranging from Hays America to Blue Springs MO, to Pittsburg KS.  LATR was originally started as a race team from Lindsborg KS in July of 2001.  Competing in events from Ft. Sills 12 Miles of Hell to Midwest Fat Tire events in western Missouri Team LATR has logged many miles both on and off the bikes participating in Fat Tire events throughout the region.  Presently the Team has taken on the roles of trail building and event promotion with new trails at Coronado Heights and Kanopolis Lake.  This July Team LATR is promoting Central Kansas's first ever downhill event at Coronado Heights. 

 

Team Earthsurfer based in Great Bend KS sports CKMBC's premier racer in chapter president Cameron Chambers.  Along with the club's stronger riders, Great Bends group has done an immense amount of trail building and maintenance work.  Developing the infamous 6 mile Rollercoaster at Wilson Lake, 10+ miles of singletrack along the Arkansas river, and another singletrack loop around Barton County Lake, this chapter is a very strong group of trailblazers and racers. 

 

Solomon Valley Crankers makes up CKMBC's third chapter club.  Based in Osborne KS the Crankers add a bit of uniqueness to the club's events sponsoring Historical rides that inform, intrigue, and invigorate the mind and the body.  Solomon Valley Crankers are presently working with landowners in Osborne County to gain access to many miles of cattle carved singletrack in the western part of our region. 

 

The various chapters and diverse group of individuals gives CKMBC a large variety of biking experience and opportunities to Fat Tire enthusiasts in the Sunflower state.  Consider becoming a part of it all.  Other area chapters may be added as the group grows and the need arises.  Club dues are presently $10 for an individual membership, $15 for a family membership.  Membership forms are available for downloading on the club page.  Use the "Get Gear" link to contact me if you need more information.
