Serving the South Bend metro area, the club currently has over 200 members including cyclists of all abilities and ages. The MBA sponsors five weekly rides during the riding season and three weekly rides year-around (weather permitting).
The MBA is also the sponsor of the annual Amishland & Lakes bike tour. This classic bike tour is based in LaGrange, Indiana in the center of northern Indiana Amish country. There are wide open spaces, clean country air and friendly people. Amishland and Lakes is famous for great SAG food (watermelons, peaches, blueberries, bananas and fresh baked cookies). The routes offer smooth, quiet roads, where buggies are numerous and cars are few. There are Amish bakeries, restaurants and homemade ice cream parlors along the route for riders who want to "get a taste" of the local flavor.
The MBA's legal name is "The Michiana Bicycle Association, Inc." The MBA is an IRS Section 501(C)(4) non-profit. Organizations chartered under this section of the IRS code are known as Social Welfare Organizations. Donations to 501(C)(4) organizations are not tax deductible.
