For many small towns across America, mountain biking is continuing to play a large role in the economy, culture, and the trails themselves. This is especially true for Red Lodge, Montana; home to about 2,000 people. With the town just a stone’s throw from Yellowstone and Beartooth Range, and bordered by bountiful wilderness areas, national forests, and parks, the Pedal United chapter of IMBA is capitalizing on the recreational tourism these resources draw by incorporating mountain biking into the local economic portfolio.
This application is only intended for organizations that have already consulted with IMBA staff about the chapter program. Send an email to info [at] imba [dot] com if your organization is interested in becoming a chapter, but has yet to consult with IMBA.
All questions must be answered to submit the form. If a question does not apply to your organization, simply type NA.
The Sandy Ridge Trail System is located near Brightwood, Oregon. It is a partnership-based project between the Bureau of Land Management, International Mountain Bicycling Association, Northwest Trail Alliance and several other organizations. Since breaking ground in 2009, the 10-mile system has turned into one of the most extensive purpose-built, mountain-bike specific trail systems on public land in the United States.
