IMBA's Public Lands Initiative

IMBA's Public Lands Initiative offers new resources to promote a bicycle-friendly approach toward our nation’s legacy of public lands protection. The strategic elements of the campaign include:

  • Identify high-priority trails across the nation and keep them open to mountain bikes
  • Provide professional training sessions, enhanced communication tools and facilitated negotiations with stakeholder groups
  • Track management plans and promote pro-bicycle policies at the local, state and federal levels
  • Champion public land protection campaigns to protect our trails from development and resource extraction and preserve continued bicycle use
  • Build and strengthen multi-user outdoor recreation coalitions
  • Unite the bicycle industry, retailers and IMBA clubs behind key land protection campaigns

California State Parks has announced a proposal to open singletrack for mountain biking in Marin County, on the shoulders of Mt. Tamalpais. The agency plans to permit bicycle use on the four mile Bill’s Trail segment and is currently compiling an environmental impact report, required to re-open the historic trail.
