IMBA at the National Bike Summit
While most of us think of moving dirt when we think of trailbuilding, a critical component of trail development is the funding and support trails receive from federal land management agencies. For this reason IMBA devotes a significant amount of resources to send staff and organize volunteers for the annual National Bike Summit in Washington, D.C. Without the meetings with senators and representatives there would be siginificantly less support to create the backcountry singletrack and community bike parks that bring riding closer to the homes and hearts of mountain bicyclists in the U.S.
After hectic travel plans the IMBA contingent at the National Bike Summit has arrived in force, with this update from the field.
