Welcome to AMBIR!

Team AMBIR (Amherst Mountain Bike Intercollegiate Racing) is open to all members of the Amherst College community. If you've ever thought about jumping on a bike and hitting the trail, we'd be thrilled to get you out there with us.  Beginners and first-timers are always welcome - just let us know that you're interested and we'll get you out for an easy introductory ride to build your skills.  The team is equipped with everything you need to get out on the trail, including a fleet of bikes, helmets, clipless shoes, gloves, and jerseys.
