Take a Kid/Mom Mountain Biking Day Oct. 5

IMBA's Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day (TKMBD) is coming October 5. The event enters its 10th year with a family emphasis. As a twist, we're hoping all the kids who have participated in previous TKMBD events will take their moms and/or other family members riding this year. No matter where you ride or how many kids you ride with, we welcome all celebrations of the great outdoors via mountain bike. Register your event by Sept. 13 to receive free commemorative bike plates and snacks from CLIF Kids. Or, search our website for an existing event near you.
