CITA (Central Iowa Trail Association), located in Des Moines, Iowa, is a 501(c)(3) formed in 1998. CITA is also a local chapter of IMBA (International Mountain Biking Association).
We are a 100% volunteer-led organization, working with local land managers like Polk County Conservation, the City of Des Moines, Iowa DNR, and Water Works Park to maintain single-track trails for mountain biking in the Des Moines area.
All of the trail work is possible because of CITA's passionate volunteers, members, and longstanding community support. We are an inclusive members-driven organization that ensures everyone has the opportunity to discover our local trails, meet new people, improve their skills, and volunteer to pay it all forward so that we, and generations to come, may benefit.
Since CITA is volunteer-led; our capacity is defined largely by our board, members and volunteers – individuals and organizations who want to create quality outdoor experiences and, especially, value single-track.
