McCall, ID – CIMBA, our local mountain biking association, will be hosting the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) for four days of club, community, and trail education.
CIMBA is honored to have been selected amongst hundreds of applicants. The Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew is a grassroots educational program and an authority on sustainable trail building practices. Two teams of professional trail experts travel year-round throughout the United States and beyond, leading trail work sessions, meeting with land managers and working with IMBA-affiliated clubs and the communities they serve to improve mountain biking opportunities. The Trail Care Crew program has inspired great volunteer trail work and is a big help to government agencies and land managers who have limited funding for trail construction and upkeep.
According to Sidney Bateman, CIMBA Membership Director, “The TCC arrives at a pivotal time for us. Based on the success of the trails in Bear Basin, we are eager to develop and expand more mountain bike specific trails in our area. We hope this event will help us gain more support and involvement from our community and members.”
