"MTB Project is the only resource I use to find trails to ride," says Mike Van Abel, Executive Director of IMBA. "The rotating photos on the homepage draw me in immediately, and inspire me to learn more. Then I can drill down to extensive descriptions, elevation profiles, and everything I need to choose the perfect ride."
IMBA mapping specialists work alongside the MTB Project team to review every trail before it is approved for public display. If there is a doubt about whether a trail has been accurately mapped, or whether it is legal to ride, the description remains on hold until additional research is completed. “I’m proud of the powerful resource we’ve built,” said Mike Ahnemann, co-founder of MTB Project. “We have already mapped some of the best riding areas in the world on our site, and we’re adding thousands of miles each month."
