Please join fellow mountain bike advocates and IMBA staff at the 2013 Mid Atlantic Regional Summit. It's a great chance to see what other clubs are doing and find out how to answer your difficult trail questions. And to ride your bike!
On September 21st and 22nd, join IMBA staff, Chapter leaders, advocates and land managers from across the region for the second Mid Atlantic Mountain Bike Summit. Topics will cover a range of subjects aimed at building organizational capacity, developing great projects, and building partnerships.

This is not the typical Conference! 

The event kicks off on Friday night the 20th, with a welcome party and social at Race Pace Bicycles in Columbia  from 8 until 10pm.

On Saturday morning, we will have a series of workshops and discussions that guarranteed to be informative! (guarrantee not valid in most states). Workshops to be held at North Laurel Community Center. At the end of the workshops, we will head over to the Rockburn Branch Skills Park for a casual discussion with the movers and shakers that made the park possible. Bring your bike because you are more than welcome to ride Rockburn, or head over to Patapsco State Park for a more cross country oriented ride. That evening, we will have a dinner and social event at Rockburn. The next morning, MORE is offering a ride in Patapsco, showcasing the extensive network they have developed in the park.
