Brian Fox, our good friend and avid-mountain-biker-map-nerd, shares a great story with us about his summer vacation road trip from Colorado to Alabama.
I love to mountain bike, but with a family my ability to head out on mountain bike centric road trips are pretty limited. Now the help of MTB Project, it’s easier than ever to fit a couple mountain bike rides into a typical family vacation.
This post comes from our Operations Specialist Carlie Mock who traveled to Oregon recently with Mapping Manager Leslie Kehmeier.
After weeks of planning, the day finally came when I flew off to the PNW to assist with Mapping Manager Leslie Kehmeier on her latest round of field work. I was certain that we would hit the ground pedaling, advocating and mapping like the wind! Or so I thought…
The House of Representatives just passed the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, a five-year bill that protects the Recreational Trails Program (RTP). IMBA worked as a coalition partner with the potent national force known as the Coalition for Recreational Trails. Together, we have achieved a major victory in protecting the Recreational Trails Program (RTP) as it is essentially unchanged from the previous highway bill, known as MAP-21. IMBA members were called on via Action Alert to help us defeat efforts to eliminate the RTP.
Lea Davison is one busy woman. She’s an Olympian, a World Cup elite racer and a pro rider for Specialized. If that wasn’t enough for one person, she also co-leads the Little Bellas, a organization that empowers young women through mountain biking.
I had a chance to catch up with Lea recently and get the details on her progression as a mountain biker, her favorite post-ride meal and the questions she wishes everyone would ask her.
I finally have a chance to catch my breath after a busy summer documenting trails for MTB Project and the BLM. Several hundred mugs of coffee and thousands of mini-van miles later, it’s exciting to pour over the maps and photos of so many awesome places to ride. It’s definitely a testament to the work that our membership, staff, partners and mountain bikers everywhere do everyday.
