IMBA's Dirty 30 Celebration

IMBA's Dirty 30 Celebration

In conjunction with Outerbike Bentonville
arkansas
What is IMBA's Dirty 30 all about?

For one weekend this fall, we're taking over Bentonville, AR, to celebrate our 30th anniversary and properly acknowledge the people that have made great places to ride happen over the past 30 years. To make our Dirty 30 the best event, possible, we joined forces with the first-ever Outerbike Bentonville to make this an incredible weekend of riding and partying with friends new and old, alike. 

Join us to honor the historical stewardship successes of our community, celebrate where mountain biking is currently, and witness the great things to come in the future. And, of course, come ride on purpose-built, bike-specific singletrack and bike parks on the newest, latest mountain bikes. 

IMBA and its network of dedicated advocates have evolved significantly to respond to new opportunities to expand mountain biking to a broader audience. By continuing to work together, we will further develop and accelerate efforts that create, enhance and protect great places to ride mountain bikes.

When is the Dirty 30?

October 26-28, 2018. Saturday, October 27, is the big day when we'll lead multiple group rides, host the awards ceremony and party into the night with Outerbike.

Why Bentonville?

This silver-level IMBA Ride Center is not only a quaint town packed with excellent restaurants, art museums and kid-friendly activities, but it's a place that has embraced bicycle riding as a lifestyle and identity. Bentonville represents IMBA's desired model for the future: a location that has multiple opportunities to ride close to where people live and work. 

Bring your mountain bike (or plan to demo several), your appetite and your family. With endless B-roads and lengthy paved paths, you might even want to bring your road bike and stay a few extra days.

More details will continue to be added over the next 60 days. To learn more about Outerbike, visit Outerbike Bentonville.

Getting to Bentonville

Many folks have flown into an airport that creates a longer drive than necessary. The closest is Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport, located a short Uber/Lyft ride from downtown Bentonville.

Tulsa (OK) International Airport and Springfield-Branson (MO) National Airport are each about a two-hour drive from Bentonville. Greyhound Shuttles are available from Springfield, MO, and Tulsa, OK, to Bentonville, and run $30-$60. Book on the Greyhound website.
