The National Mountain Bike Patrol (NMBP) will hold a special session for members of the program at IMBA’s World Summit, a biennial conference held this year in Steamboat Springs, CO, August 20-24.

The NMBP session will bring together patrollers and patrol directors from all over the U.S. to discuss strategies for improving fundraising, grantwriting, and race/event coverage. It will conclude with an hour-long panel discussion to address questions and ideas brought by attendees. The event will wrap up with a mountain bike ride and happy hour.

The session begins at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, August 21. Attendees must register for the full World Summit, which includes two additional days of educational conference sessions, networking opportunities, a jump jam, bike demos, a film night, rides and more.

The IMBA National Mountain Bike Patrol consists of dedicated volunteers who partner with land managers, landowners and emergency personnel to assist, educate and inform all trail users in order to enhance their recreational experience. The NMBP program organizes and supports more than 45 volunteer bike patrol groups and 600+ trained patrollers.
