The Squamish Dirt Bike Association (SDBA) is an off-road dirt bike club that is dedicated to the promotion of safe and responsible riding in the Sea to Sky Corridor. The SDBA believes in the equality of riding, safety, rider training/education, as well as support and understanding the needs of all user groups.
SDBA membership and volunteer efforts have afforded the SDBA many accomplishments such as: Section 57 (Forest and Range Practices Act) authorized dirt bike trails, the annual Barry Groundwater Memorial Hare Scrambles race, BCORMA rider clinics and the recent formation of the Off-road motorized support (ORMS) team with the District of Squamish.
By promoting trail stewardship SDBA has developed great working relations with the appropriate authorities and other trail user groups. Trail maintenance, GPS trail mapping and specific signage are ongoing efforts. More recently, the SDBA communicates with representatives of Run of River (ROR) Power Projects in order to ensure that trails are returned to their original course and that notices regarding any ROR activities in riding areas are conveyed to the SDBA so riders may be promptly notified.
SDBA is a member of the BC off-road motorcycle association (BCORMA). This Provincial Federation supports over 25 clubs and their riding areas throughout our province and lobbies on a provincial and federal level for every off road motorcycle rider in B.C. BCORMA bronze and platinum trail pass benefits riders in many ways. Riders with trail passes support their local club in the maintenance, upgrading and sustainability of the trails in their local area. Collectively, riders are assisting BCORMA to remain sustainable and continue with efforts to keep riding areas open as well as demonstrate a strong voice in efforts for positive changes riders feel strongly about in protecting our riding areas.
BCORMA provides a valuable $1 million 3rd party liability insurance policy with the Platinum trail pass. Off road liability insurance coverage along with a driving permit is now mandatory to ride on a BC Forest Service Road (FSR).
The SDBA looks forward to meeting the various riding needs and appreciates the continued support of itʼs members and dedicated volunteers.
