From MTBA website – MTBA Recreation Membership: This membership class is for people who do not intend on racing but who wish for the great insurance cover offered by MTBA for our members. This class of membership is strictly non-competitive, so members of the class who wish to enter a race will also need to pay for a day permit. Membership also gives you comprehensive insurance coverage that is perhaps one of the best available in the sporting industry. Full details of the current insurance provisions for members is available on the MTBA website and includes public liability, personal accident cover and capital benefits.
Option #2 – RACING = Club fee + MTBA ‘Race’ Licence
This is for most club members that want to compete in races as well as participate in the social side of the club. It is worthwhile considering purchasing a MTBA race licence if you plan to do a few races each year as you won’t have to purchase a $36 ‘day licence’ each time you compete in a race. Your MTBA licence covers you for a rolling 12 month period at all MTBA races throughout Australia including state & national level events (and all club races). The MTBA licence is also an insurance cover for you whilst mountain biking under all events giving you medical benefits in the event of an accident (Conditions Apply).

From MTBA website –
Some of the benefits of joining MTBA include:
- A national autonomous body for mountain biking
- National series that is raced all over Australia
- Cost effective membership
- Well priced day membership fees
- Rolling licenses (valid for 12 months from date of purchase)
- Flexibility in membership types (both recreational and competitive)
- All money collected by MTBA is returned to mountain biking clubs and riders
- Component of national membership is directed back to assist clubs in local development initiatives
- Trails maintenance funding for states and clubs through setting up and partially funding IMBA AU
- Works to keep trails open for all riders
- All members can race all MTBA events nationwide (club, state series, state championships, national series, national championships)
- Each rider will receive a card
- Works to promote the sport to the general public through its contacts with the media
- Markets the sport to sponsors and television
You can take out as many day membership permits as you like but there are some pretty good reasons why a full 12 month membership is better:
- You get additional insurance coverage for the time you are ‘just’ riding your bike at the same level as the great coverage you get in competition.
- You only have to fill in forms once every 12 months instead of at every event, saving you time and the club volunteer’s time in administration.
- Your membership fee has helped to finance IMBA Australia who lobby Local and State Governments and land managers to open, build and maintain trails that are local to you.
- A full MTBA membership can be used at events held by any other affiliated MTBA club throughout Australia, including at state or national level. You can even accrue UCI points at selected national level events!
- Lastly, a full MTBA membership saves you money – for a junior if you participate in just 4 or more events or for a senior if you participate in only 5 or more events in 12 months you save!
