The Tri-County Mountain Bike Association is an IMBA affiliated mountain bike club based in the Jackson, MS metro area. Our primary aim is to promote the sport of mountain biking by securing land for trails and acting as an advocate for mountain biking in our community. Members of TCMBA have access to the Ridgeland Trails, which the club designed and maintains.
The TCMBA hosts the Annual Fat Tire Festival which is the last stop on the Mississippi Off-Road Cycling Series. This two day event consists of kids racing, short track racing, music, and finishes on Sunday with the McGee Lungbuster. Hundreds of people come out to enjoy the fun, race, or cheer on their favorite racers.
There are currently over 200 active members in the TCMBA. Many of these members volunteer hundreds of hours of their time for workdays, swap meets, and the Fat Tire Festival. Membership is open to anyone for the purpose of hiking and mountain biking. Waivers and $3.00 visitor passes are available at the parking lot for guests.
