Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day

 Saturday October 3rd, 2015

4:00pm – 6:00pm
EasyCLIMB Trail
Cascade Locks, Oregon
 

In addition to being good, healthy, fun, the goal of Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day is to develop a connection between
kids, and the natural world around them. Today’s children are
tomorrow’s land managers and politicians. They will be the
future decision-makers for important matters like recreation
and access to public lands. How different might our current
access landscape look today if previous generations of policy
makers had grown up riding bikes on natural-surface trails?

What is Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day?

IMBA’s Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day strives to encourage communities in the U.S.A. and around the world to join together and ride mountain bikes with kids. Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day (TKMBD) events range in size from a few kids and families to several hundred gathering at a local park or trailhead. IMBA clubs and chapters, retail shops, Trips for Kids, schools, scouts and community groups are encouraged to host events. Last year over 15,000 kids and family members participated in 150+ community events in the U.S. Several events were registered in other countries including: Italy, Australia, South Africa, Canada, Malaysia, and Mexico.
