Chris Orr, Community Engagement Specialist

Ride everything. Even if it’s not your primary discipline. Ride as many bikes as you can, learn as much as you can from other builders and then turn it into a style that’s all your own.

Liz Grades, IMBA Trail Solutions Project Manager

Trails allow us to experience a place in so many ways, they offer a space to test our skills and endurance, allow us to quiet our minds and find solitude, to seek adventures off the beaten path, or just have fun connecting with friends and family after work or school. They tie us to our communities and the natural world.
