IMBA Women's Uprising
IMBA Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day (TKMBD) is an annual event that seeks to introduce the joy of mountain biking to the next generation. Created in 2004 in honor of Jack Doub, and recognized by the U.S. Congress, Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day is officially celebrated every year on the first Saturday in October.
TKMBD events can be hosted by almost anyone in any country. Participating groups include IMBA chapters and affiliated mountain bike clubs, community organizations, scouting groups, youth programs, schools and others. Or, gather your family, friends and coworkers to host your own, local ride. Every #mountainbiker is invited to participate!
Since 2004, nearly 100,000 youth have discovered and celebrated the joy of pedaling two wheels on dirt at TKMBD events, and many have gone on to become passionate riders, volunteer trail advocates and even high school mountain bike racers.
TKMBD always takes place on the first Saturday in October. We will provide a way to add your event to the global map plus offer resources and downloads closer to the event date.
