Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day 2021 @ Warrior Creek Back Entrance
Oct 2 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm

IMBA Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day will be celebrated at Kerr Scott Trails on October 2nd at 11:00AM. We’ll be gathering at the the back entrance of Warrior Creek (off of Boomer/Ferguson School Rd) at the pump track. Join the Alliance for a fun morning of riding dedicated to the kids!

TKMBD is an annual celebration held officially on the first Saturday of October. The event, developed and coordinated by IMBA, strives to encourage communities around the world to join together and ride mountain bikes with youth. Over the years we’ve had tens of thousands of kids participate from across the globe, including: Italy, Australia, South Africa, Canada, Malaysia, and Mexico. Informal or formal, one child or 100 children, TKMBD celebrates the joy of riding in the dirt.

Besides being good, healthy fun, the goal is to develop a connection between kids and the natural world around them. Today’s children are tomorrow’s land managers and politicians — 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?

An adult group ride will take place when the kids’ ride commences (around 1 pm).

Please RSVP below to register you and your kid!
