Membership is very important and has benefits that might not be so obvious. Membership is income, solidarity and strength in numbers.
Membership also gives you personal benefits. Those benefits are bike shop discounts, product discounts, the Subaru VIP discount, and your choice of a magazine subscription. Of course, trails are nice too.
We hope you will consider joining the CORP IMBA Chapter. We'd love to see our lapsed and expired members return as contributors to our community.

Volunteers with Capital Off Road Pathfinders have worked out an agreement to provide free cyclocross practices for beginners in Madison Parks.
This practice series is the result of several years of talks with Madison Parks, along with CORP’s responsible stewardship of the Cyclocross Practice Area at North East Park. We are super grateful to Madison Parks for offering us this new opportunity.
Practices will rotate through a number of parks this fall. Here are the details:
What: Cyclocross basics and practice for beginners (kids and adults, ages 10 and up). The series is not cumulative, so you can come to any or all of the practice and fit right in.
When and where: See attached map
9/19 @ Olin Park (northwest end near Monona Bay) 9/26 @ Olbrich park (northwest corner at Lakeland Ave) 10/3 @ Marshal Park (south corner next to parking lot) 10/10 @ Garner Park (on the grassy hillside below the park pavilion) 10/24, @ Aldo Leopold Park 11/7 @ Heistand Park (on the grassy bowl) 11/14 @ Reindahl park (near the splash pad area)
When: 5:00pm start, lasting about 1-½ hours, daylight permitting.
What to bring: a properly fitted helmet, normal riding attire, a cyclocross bike in good working order (a mountain bike, gravel, commuter, fat bike, or any bike with knobby tires is OK). We also recommend bringing your own (full) water bottle. Some of the parks do not have water on site.
There is no registration, but we ask that you RSVP to let us know which date(s) you might attend, so we can plan accordingly: email@example.com.
All of this is possible because folks like you have become members of CORP. A portion of your membership dollars helps cover these events as well as the mowing fee at NorthEast Park. Your support will help us to offer even more off-road opportunities throughout the City of Madison. Join us!
