Visited several sites within the community to assess them for opportunities and constraints pursuant to developing a community bike park. Gave presentations to mountain bicyclists, land managers, and other stakeholders about the benefits of urban bike parks, including a discussion of success stories from North America and the world.

Mountain bikers, like other trail users, are conservation-minded folks who believe very deeply in stewardship.
Over the last few years IMBA has worked closely with federal agencies to protect and conserve public lands while providing opportunities for recreation. One great example is the King Range Trail System in Northern California.

The Black Rock Epic offers gravity-oriented mountain bikers a dream area, set in a classic Northwest forest. After a quick spin up the 3-mile access road (closed to vehicles), riders find themselves faced with a difficult decision: Which ridiculously fun trail to take? Choices range from the beginner-friendly Bonzai line to the gaps, drops and wooden features (milled from local trees) on Granny's Kitchen.
Looking for the ultimate singletrack adventure? Then the South Yuba Epic has your name all over it. Located about 20 miles north of Nevada City on the far west side of the Sierra Nevada range, the South Yuba is more than 35 miles of mountain bike bliss. A highlight of this ride is the nearly 17-mile stretch of singletrack along the South Yuba River.
Although you'll be hard pressed to find a rock or root on this trail, don't be fooled into thinking this is an easy jaunt. The tight singletrack and numerous short, steep climbs will test you.
