SHARE Mountain Bike Club is a non-profit, IMBA affiliated, organization dedicated to promoting responsible mountain biking.

SHARE was founded in 1988 in an effort to Present Mountain Biking in a positive light to the management of Crystal Cove State Park. It was a spinoff of a club called Del’s Angels and the famous Tuesday night rides in Crystal Cove State Park. The focus was then, as it is now, on advocacy through trail work and education.

SHARE members made up the first Orange County trail assistance programs which has grown into some of the largest TAV programs in the US.

Early on SHARE formed an alliance and partnership with the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA), which continues today with SHARE being the local IMBA chapter club in Orange County.

 I personally donate something better than money: my time and effort. I don't complain somebody needs to do something. I don't wait for somebody to fix something, I fix it. When I see something wrong I bring my own tools and handle it. I'm not stupid, I don't alter trails. Examples of what I've done: mounds of broken glass from smashed beer bottles in Anaheim Hills: I came back with bags, broom, rake, etc. and cleaned up all the shards. Trash along the trail: I bring those disposable plastic grocery bags and pick up the trash & dispose of properly myself. Graffiti: acetone, scrub brush, & rags usually cleans that up. I don't do big graffiti cleanup, though, as I don't want to bring barrels of solvent to a public area. I NEVER see anyone else doing cleanup, so I do it. I figure that's way more valuable than a $5 donation. My time and effort is worth more than $5. I'm not special, just impatient. Somebody, somewhere's got to do it, I figure why not me? Then everybody can enjoy the trails just a little bit more.

 Time to update this with something more current. SHARE membership works with local stakeholders and organizations to maintain SHARED trail use, development, and maintenance within Orange County. I’m biased as a member, but the group does what it can as an all-volunteer organization.
