With summer fast approaching and the great outdoors beckoning I thought to bring you some varying news worthy items from the world of mountain biking.
First up is news of the Internal Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) world summit which is going to be held in Park City, Utah and is scheduled for June 18th-21st, the summit will be organised around three themes:
1. Building a Mountain Biking Community
2. Managing Mountain Biking
3. Mountain Biking’s Value Proposition
and will host a world-class schedule of events including 30 educational seminars from top-notch experts, and guided riding opportunities on sweet singletrack. Headliners include Trek president John Burke; legendary Australian trailmeister Glen Jacobs; Dafydd Davis, pioneer of the United Kingdom’s first purpose-built mountain bike trails at Coed y Brenin, Wales; and Vancouver’s Jay Hoots, urban bike park architect of great renown.
Get there if you can.
And secondly I wanted to bring you news of the Ohio Mountain Bike Association’s all-new trail guide that contains information on just about every mountain bike trail in Ohio. Information included in the trail guide includes trail conditions, location, description, and more! It uses Wiki technology so anyone can add their comments and recommendations to the site. All you have to do is sign in with the same username and password you use on the OMBA forum to get started.
