Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day on Oct. 6

IMBA will celebrate its eighth-annual Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day (TKMBD) on Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012. This is a great opportunity for you to share your passion for pedalling with kids!

TKMBD is an annual celebration held on the first Saturday of October. The event, developed and coordinated by IMBA, strives to encourage communities around the world to join together and ride mountain bikes with youth. Last year, we had more than 13,000 participants at hundreds of events across the globe, including: Australia, Canada, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico and South Africa. Informal or formal, with one child or one hundred, TKMBD events celebrate the joy of riding in the dirt.

We understand that in Canada weather in early October can be erratic so you can always host a TAKMBD earlier! Regardless of your affiliation, the number of kids, or your destination please register with us before August 31st in order to receive a TAKMBD care package, our way of saying “Thank you!” for getting kids out on bikes!

If you are looking for some ideas or tips on how to organize an event check out our Event Tool kit. You also find links to a free poster download to help promote your event, and even a sample press release to send to your local media outlets.
