Membership of the Hamsterley Trailblazers is vitally important to the club, it's trail development activities and it's vision for the future of mountain biking in the North East of England. We aim to make Hamsterley Forest a world class venue for riders of all abilities, yet at the same time, a haven where families can ride together and experience all the positives that come from exercising outdoors. Membership fees are set at a nominal level to cover costs such as insurance and administration of the legal requirements of running a charity. Without your support, mountain biking in Hamsterley Forest is at risk.

Whether you're a casual rider or a frequent visitor, please lend your support to the Hamsterley Trailblazers today. For less than the price of a round of drinks, you will be helping to build something really special for yourself and generations to come.

Membership runs from 1st January until 31st December. All membership fees go to providing benefits to our members and improving the trails within the forest.

We also welcome corporate membership. Interested parties should contact contact@hamsterley-trailblazers.co.uk

Please note: Only persons aged 17 years and over can apply for membership. Under-17s can attend club activities only under the supervision of a current club member, either as a guest or as part of a family membership.
