[Excerpt from Santa Fe official travel site – click for more details]
Santa Fe is located in Northern New Mexico, an hour's drive north of Albuquerque, the state's largest city and major air gateway. The Albuquerque International Sunport (ABQ) is serviced by all of the major U.S. airlines. Flying into Albuquerque and renting a car is by far the most popular way of traveling around New Mexico. But not the only way. Train service provides access to New Mexico on a daily basis as does the bus.
Pre-conference Field Trip
The Los Alamos field trip tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 9 has been cancelled.

Win a Bike!
We will be raffling a complete bike, courtesy of sponsors O'Leary Built Bicycles and BTI (both based in Santa Fe). During the Summit you'll have a chance to purchase tickets for this steel, 650B, Gates beltdrive SS hardtail, and take it home with you! As a bonus, early-bird registrants will receive 2 additional tickets to the drawing. All proceeds to benefit the local IMBA chapter, Santa Fe Fat Tire Society.
Bring Your Family
We encourage you to bring your family and make it a week-long Southwest getaway. IMBA has teamed with a local destination management company to offer discounted activities for non-attendees, things like museum visits, gallery stops, architectural tours and fine cuisine sampling. Make a family vacation of it!
MTB Community Art Celebration and Poster Session
On Thursday evening we'll be gathering en masse to celebrate all things mountain bike. In addition to educational poster displays, we'll be showcasing the best of your MTB-related photographs, illustrations and video. This is your chance to have your artistic creations be a part of the 2012 IMBA World Summit.
Santa Fe, New Mexico will provide the backdrop to the 2012 IMBA World Summit. While Santa Fe is known around the world for its art and culture, it is also an incredible mountain biking destination. During the event, nearby trails will stimulate riders of all abilities. Attendees will be encouraged to make it a full week for professional development, rejuvenation, networking and, of course, great riding.
The Summit offers numerous opportunities for industry participation. Inquiries should be directed to conference director events [at] imba [dot] com (Terry Breheny).
