AGM and 24 Hours of Light Announcements

Hey mountain bikers!

The snow is here and the fat bikers are out! This has given the CMBC board some time to catch our breath from a busy summer and reflect on the coming months. With that, we have a couple of messages for you:


Are you looking for a way to give back to your mountain bike community? We are looking for people to join the board at our AGM! Specifically seeking a Director of Communications and a Secretary, but ALWAYS looking for keen folks who want to contribute, even in small ways! Time commitment is one board meeting a month (lasts about 2 hours), and about 1 hour a week. Email if you are interested!


We have already started to get questions about 24 Hours of Light 2019! So it seems like a good time to share some exciting news with our supporters. The Contagious Mountain Bike Club board has, with mixed emotions, decided not to hold the 24 Hours of Light Festival next year. We love that the festival ran strong and brought mountain bikers from Whitehorse and beyond so much joy over the past 18 years. But we also recognize that there is an appetite for new adventures and we want to embrace that!

With that, we are stoked to announce we are planning an awesome festival weekend event for next year, that will have races (DH and enduro), kids activities, bike demos, trailside repair and suspension setup clinics, skills clinics, games, and more! Stay tuned as we post details throughout the winter/spring. But we need your help with one thing - we need a name!!!

So, we are holding a contest. Submit a name for this awesome new festival to - the winner will be announced at our AGM on November 24, and the person who submits the selected name will win a CMBC jersey! So get after it!!

Thanks all and see you on the trails 🙂
