TMBR’s purpose is to enhance the experience of mountain bikers in the tri-state area through improved trails, amenities, and social networking.



TMBR is a non-profit organization that operates in a tri-state area surrounding Dubuque, IA.  It was formed in the fall of 2015 to achieve the following:

  •         Serve as a political entity to promote the interest of area mountain bikers
  •         Channel the individual efforts of mountain bike advocates in the area
  •         Provide funding for facilities and initiatives that support are mountain biking
  •         Enact the change that would transform the tri-state area into a Midwest mountain biking destination


TMBR’s small group of founding officers quickly aligned around a single goal that would drive the actions and priorities of the organization:

To this end, TMBR has been executing a clear plan to build the organization, build credibility, and ultimately build trails.

When we achieve this outcome, the whole community will benefit.  Hotels, restaurants, and retail outlets will benefit from increased tourism.  Local runners, hikers, and nature lovers will enjoy the trails that are a product of our efforts.  Local employers and property owners will benefit from a Dubuque community that offers first-class outdoor recreation facilities.
