Riding Safely in 2020
It's no surprise Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day will look different in many communities this year in order to keep everyone safe. On October 3rd, 2020, we encourage families and close neighbors to take their kids to the trails in lieu of the usual big local events. Share pictures and stories from your day with the hashtag #TKMBD. The rider card templates above are included in the toolkit below— use them to feature your young riders like the superstars they are. We hope we can all ride together again in 2021!
Safety continues to be top-of-mind on the trails and in local communities with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Be sure to know before you go for any special regulations such as temporary facility closures. Follow the safety guidelines of the local government closest to the trail you're riding, as well as guidance from the nearby IMBA Local Partner or other local trail organization.
When larger events are safe to organize again, TKMBD events can be hosted by almost anyone in any country. Participating groups include IMBA Local partners and affiliated mountain bike clubs, community organizations, scouting groups, youth programs, schools and others. Or, simply gather your family, friends and coworkers to host your own, backyard ride. These events can range in size. Here are some ideas to help you make your day a success.
