Ride. Learn. Inspire.
IMBA's women's initiative is a new effort for 2018. We are committed to becoming an aggregator of information, resources and stoke to get more women riding and more women involved in improving their mountain biking communities. We're kicking off this effort with the women's UPRISING event in March, where we'll gather best practices and great ideas from across the country. Join us!
IMBA leads the U.S. in sustainable trail education, planning, design, construction and maintenance. We champion mountain bike access, grassroots organizations and volunteerism at all levels, and we want to encourage more women to engage in their local trail communities.

IMBA is made up of mountain bikers promoting responsible riding and championing great places to ride. We want to be able to help women's mountain biking communities to do the same in their regions. We are working to provide assets and contacts to help this along. For now, please take a look at our existing ride info:
IMBA empowers and educates a national collective of mountain bikers. Opportunities for more and better riding are out there; all we have to do is get organized and engaged. IMBA Chapters and affiliates are hard at work at the local level. IMBA's national programs support and enhance those efforts. Join our nationwide movement!
However you ride, wherever you ride and whenever you ride, we hope you’ll ride with us. Frequency, skill, speed or equipment aren't the things that make you a mountain biker. Passion—love for the knobby-tire ride—makes you a mountain biker.

Cycling, and mountain biking, in particular, has had a profound existence throughout my life. Riding my bike makes me feel better as a person and allows me the freedom to explore places I never thought imaginable. I joined IMBA because somewhere between the experiences of riding a mountain bike and the products we use to do it is the glue that holds that opportunity together. I believe that being part of a team of mountain bikers that works hard, learns from failures, and remains persistent can only lead preservation and future gains in access.Meet our team
