How a Mountain Bike Vacation Can Result in More Trails Close to Home

As part of IMBA’s 30th anniversary and “Dirty 30” celebration later this month in Bentonville, AR, we’re raising funds to support our new focus on creating and catalyzing more trails close to home so that everyone has a great place to ride.

Our Dirty 30 auction, running October 22-27, is now up for preview. Funds will support our programs and initiatives to grow the quantity and quality of mountain bike trails communities across the U.S.

The auction includes all-inclusive mountain bike getaways to multiple, iconic locations across the country; made-in-USA mountain bikes; women’s skills clinic packages; and fully-supported guided trips featuring pro mountain bike racers.

The auction opens October 22. Check it out and make sure to download the app so you can start bidding when the time comes. Thanks in advance for your support; it is much appreciated and will go a long way toward catalyzing and creating more trails close to home!

Stoke from the desk of Rich Edwards, Director of Construction and Operations for IMBA Trail Solutions:

Deep Creek State Park, MARYLAND

In Deep Creek, we are building some of the best professionally designed rocky singletrack I’ve ever seen, using a combination of hand-built rock work and machine-built rock work. It’s some of the most satisfying trail we've been able to build due to the amount of rock, the lush landscape, and Maryland State Parks' desire for a trail that flows well and is still full of classic rock texture.

Sandy Ridge, OREGON

At Sandy Ridge, we just wrapped up the Johnny Royale Trail, a federally contracted black-diamond jump trail (on Bureau of Land Management land) that is the biggest, free-to-ride trail of its kind in the area. It’s located in Portland’s pre-eminent public mountain biking spot, and the term being thrown around is “resort-style.” The features are large...like, small-house-size large.

Dropping In: IMBA Trail Labs Edit

There are multiple ways to create new mountain bike trail systems. Through IMBA Trail Labs, we’re aiming to help city leaders and land managers understand their broad value, plan for them, create them and support them. We apply our decades of professional experience to these intensive, multi-day courses to make sure that decision-makers at the top are primed and ready to create more trails close to home. Our second Trail Labs is coming up later this month as part of our Dirty 30 celebration, with the third to be announced soon. Start talking to your land managers, now, about budgeting to attend one in 2019.
