IMBA Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day will be celebrated at Lake James State Park on October 7th at 1 pm. Join the Alliance and event sponsor Overmountain Cycles 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 when the kids’ ride commences (around 3 pm).

To register a kid, or if you are interested in helping with the event (or need more information at all), email the Alliance at info@ridenwnctrails.com.
