Thanks to contributions from supporters like you, IMBA is able to help our Local Partners create, protect and enhance more trails close to home. Your contribution to a Dig In project will help transform a community and make better places to ride bikes.
Each project that raises $5,000 is eligible for $5,000 in matching funds from Shimano. So the more money is raised means more money can be allocated toward the project. Make a difference today by contributing to a Dig In project!
The next application period opens November 1st, 2023 – November 30th, 2023.

Nagel Middle School Bike Park
The skills park will provide an area for students to relieve stress, anxiety, and depression while improving their social and emotional health. The facilities and trail system will allow students to develop bike skills and challenge themselves physically and mentally. The park will also be open to the public outside school hours and serve as a practice site for the local NICA team.
Sapwi Flow Trail
This bike skills park is open to the public and free for everyone. The design accommodates all levels of rider so this dirt playground is enjoyed by kids, beginners, families, and experts. The Sapwi Flow Trail will expand this effort with a unidirectional, bike-only trail that rolls from the middle terrace following the naturally sloping terrain down to the bike park area. It will be the first of its kind in the Conejo Valley and will provide riders an opportunity to work on bike handling skills. The Sapwi Flow Trail will be great for beginners and have some optional features for more advanced riders. There is a shaded spectator area for families to hang out, picnic, watch the fun, and cheer on riders.
Sapwi Bike Park has had a positive impact on local trails. It has greatly reduced the incidence of illegal trail modifications, and no longer sees impromptu jumps appearing on local trails. The addition of a flow trail will expand and enhance the Sapwi Bike Park experience for everyone and help get more kids on bikes!
Trails at Wiggins Community Center
Pine Knob Mountain Bike Park
Pine Knob will be a shared use park that provides access to a wooded city park within the city of Russellville, Arkansas. This park is located near a low-income residential district of Russellville. Currently this city park is unmaintained, and the Pine Knob project will revitalize the park and provide the area residents with access to recreation that is close to home. In addition to mountain biking, this park will encourage the local community to visit the park via the walk-in access point to experience a scenic vista view of the city, enjoy casual walking paths among the large pine trees, and allow visitors a place to relax and embrace nature. To enhance the overall experience of the park, the signs will help guide visitors throughout the park.

Chaparral Ridge Trail Construction
Folsom Auburn Trail Riders Action Coalition (FATRAC) is raising funds for professionals to design and build the Chaparral Ridge Trail. Adding this trail would provide more challenging ride experiences, and significantly greater connectivity and loop options in this popular zone of El Dorado County. Leveraging volunteer “Dig Days” will have significant community impact by providing instruction, engagement and appreciation for local trail organizations and trail systems.
Ned SHRED MTB
Nederland Elementary has about 35% of its students on free or reduced lunch. Even if most families do not qualify for free or reduced lunch, outdoor equipment remains expensive and inaccessible to many Nederland families.
Peak to Peak Endurance aims to lower the barrier of entry to mountain biking for youth in Nederland, Colorado by providing free equipment and instruction. Dig In funds raised will go directly to the purchase, maintenance, and secure storage of bikes and equipment. The organization has partnered with Singletrack Mountain Bike Adventures and their certified coaches to lead the in-school programs and provide appropriate level instruction. They have also partnered with local bike shops to purchase equipment wholesale, and the Town of Nederland for safe and secure bicycle storage.
