What is the mission of MBM? Advocacy? Trail building? Group rides? Racing? Trail work? Fund raising? Growing the sport? Protecting Michaux? Where does the money go? What are the benefits to its members? What are the benefits to the community? The blog (for good or bad) is the public face of MBM. Anyone who searches for mountain biking and Michaux will find this blog. This would be the perfect place to let the world know what MBM stands for. Many groups call Michaux home, however this is the most visible. It may be easier to find new or motivated members to take an active role if everyone knew what the club was about. An open forum that allows outsiders to ask questions and receive answers is key to growing and maintaining any club. If you need to first need to join the club, or attend the meeting to find out what the club is about we have all lost.
