IMBA Event Partners

IMBA Event Partners help expand our network and support the IMBA cause in many ways. We encourage riders, racers and event organizers to get involved and connect with local chapters! Check out our on-line resources for event best practices.

What it means to be an IMBA Event Partner

Connecting with MTB events is important to us. As an IMBA Event Partner, you can help us grow the movement and connect our supporters. There are two main ways you can help:

1. Ask your riders to join IMBA during registration

Add a "Join IMBA" check box or "register" button to your website or online registration page to sign up people as they register for your event. We'll keep track of the new members you bring in and send you updates. Registering with IMBA is free. All we ask for is a person's name, email address, and zip code so that we can count them as a supporter and communicate with them about MTB issues, new trails, chapter events and opportunities that are local, state-wide, or national. We never sell or trade emails.

2. Promote IMBA through your marketing efforts

Help get the word out by sharing IMBA news on your social media, emailing your rider mailing list, placing our supporter logo on your website, or adding our logo to your official jersey, t-shirt or collateral. All of IMBA's logos and graphics can be found here.

Any questions? Feel free to info [at] peopleforbikes [dot] org (contact us).

Follow IMBA on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for more up to date info. Plus check back to this page for up to the moment offers and incentives from our event partners.
