Join Overland Mountain Bike Club and other regional IMBA Chapters for our Colorado Mountain Bike Summit at Block One Event Center in Fort Collins, CO, on October 13-15th 2017.

Let's unpave the way forward and plan for the next decade of trails. The summit will be a great opportunity to network with volunteer advocates, land stewards, federal and state land managers, industry representatives and other IMBA partners from around Colorado and beyond.

“Chapter Summits are a great opportunity to hear what’s happening trails-wise in other areas, to learn about why/how they are happening, and to help foster discussions and ideas beneficial to us all.  Trails build community.  Yet, each community comes with its own opportunities and challenges.  This Summit provides the forum to openly discuss many of these issues so we can all have better places to ride our mountain bikes.” says Kenny Bearden – Executive Director of Overland Mountain Bike Club
