Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day
IMBA Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day (TKMBD) is an annual event that seeks to introduce the joy of mountain biking to the next generation. Created in 2004 and recognized by the U.S. Congress, TKMBD is officially celebrated every year on the first Saturday in October. More than 100,000 youth have discovered and celebrated the joy of pedaling two wheels on dirt at TKMBD events, and many have gone on to become passionate riders, volunteer trail advocates and even high school mountain bike racers.
Plan an event!
TKMBD events can be hosted by almost anyone in any country. Participating groups include IMBA chapters 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. Every #mountainbiker is invited to participate! IMBA will provide a 2018 digital toolkit in mid-September. This year, we are not providing physical kits nor hosting registration, but we are revamping the event for 2019. Explore our resources below and plan to have a great event!
