Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day is sponsored by Overland Mountain Bike Club and is presented in conjunction with the new spring edition of IMBA’s International Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day. This event will create great memories for you and your children while encouraging an active lifestyle. It encourages kids to put down the video games and hop on their bikes and have a great time riding local trails and learning trail etiquette. After the ride, we provide lunch for kids, parents and volunteers and there will likely be some swag for the kids. The event will be limited to the first 50 kids, so be sure to register early.
This event cannot happen without help from our wonderful volunteers. Please also consider helping out with this great event.
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. You, your family or your company are encouraged to join the fun and participate in IMBA’s Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day.
