Ride Centers

Model Trails Update, Effective May, 2016

In 2016, IMBA's Model Trails program is on hold so we can consider how to reshape and improve it. We will not be accepting applications for Epics or Ride Centers, and all existing honorees will enjoy a grace year with no review required to uphold their current rankings. We apologize for this hiatus, but it is imperative that we reformulate resources and outputs, so IMBA's Model Trails offerings can take a new step forward in 2017. The remainder of the info on this page is being left intact for reference. 

The Ride Center™ designation represents IMBA’s Model Trail recognition for large-scale mountain bike facilities that offer something for every rider. Bring your full arsenal of bikes to these destination-worthy areas. From backcountry adventures to shuttle-served gravity trails, and from expert-only to family-friendly, you’ll encounter the best the sport has to offer.
