IMBA Rules of the trail

IMBA launched its Rules of the Trail in 1988 to educate mountain bikers and serve as a pro-bike advocacy tool. These guidelines for responsible riding have been adopted by land-management agencies nationwide. Your actions have critical impacts on the landscape, the trails, the animals and other trail users. Pledge to ride friendly; ride prepared; ride responsibly; ride lightly. 

These resources are yours to download, print and share with your customers who are new to mountain biking.
