The Ride Center™ designation represents IMBA’s recognition of large-scale mountain bike facilities that offer something for every rider. From backcountry adventures to shuttle-served gravity trails, and from expert-only to family-friendly, you’ll be able to ride for days and encounter the best mountain biking has to offer. Ride Centers applications are accepted annually and fully vetted by trail professionals. Find them on the map, below.
The IMBA EPICS designation denotes a true backcountry riding experience. IMBA EPICS are what many mountain bikers live for and make travel plans around: immersive rides that are technically and physically challenging, beautiful to behold and worthy of celebration. EPICS are more than 80 percent singletrack and at least 20 miles in length. The list is crowd-sourced, with nominations accepted on an annual basis. Find them on the map, below.
MTB Project was developed by IMBA and Adventure Projects Inc., in 2013.
