Christine Reid

Executive Director

My role with the NSMBA is to support, elevate, “spring-board” and optimize all the great work that has already taken place. I bring with me a wealth of managerial experience, a unique skill set that includes budgeting, forecasting, marketing, strategic planning and expert cat herder.

I have enjoyed the last three years with the North Shore Mountain Bike Association because of all the different projects I have been a part of. From expanding our social media channels to improve communications, increase our membership year over year and continue to build and develop our relationships in the community I am humbled and inspired by the support of the North Vancouver and mountain bike community in making our goals a reality.

There is a lot to do when working with a volunteer driven non-profit organization and I look forward to the challenge everyday! If you need anything drop me a line! christine@nsmba.ca

Trail Academy

I’ve been a trail builder for the NSMBA for the past few years, and had the honour of leading academy practical and advanced days for the past two. I’m very excited to be part of the Academy team this year to further develop this excellent (free) program to help train the builders of the future!

Trail Academy

I’m excited to take on a new role with the NSMBA, sharing my passion of caring for the trails and inspiring others to do the same. In addition to many hours of volunteer trail work and my experience as a TAP builder, I bring expertise in course design and curriculum development and welcome the opportunity to grow the Arc’teryx Trail Academy and Race Face Shore Corps programs. I look forward to training future trail stewards in innovative and sustainable trail building and maintenance practices.

Trail Crew

I’m super excited to be a part of the NSMBA team! I love seeing the progression in projects come together however it was envisioned. I grew up riding the shore and always have loved what we have to ride. Keeping it maintained and bringing all kinds of riders out really gets me stoked.
