Sea to Sky Study Reveals Economic Impact of Mountain Biking
Mountain bike trails in the Sea to Sky region of British Columbia generated an impressive $10.3 million (CAD) in visitor spending last summer, according to a study conducted by the Western Canada Mountain Bike Tourism Association (MBTA) in partnership with the Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance (CSTA). That figure jumps to $38 million (CAD) when the Whistler Bike Park and Crankworx Mountain Bike Festival are included in the analysis. The study also includes participation numbers and other statistics of use to mountain bike advocates on the lookout for economic success stories. A pdf of the study is available online.

December Record Month for IMBA
Thanks to more than 3,100 dedicated riders and generous donors, December raised more money than any month on record. It also commemorates surpassing our goal of $50,000 contributions to IMBA's Annual Fund (and riders are still donating). With this momentum, IMBA will be tackling our simple, yet ambitious, goals for 2007:

  • Unite the mountain bike movement and strengthen our collective voice
  • Provide truly world-class riding experiences and model trail systems
  • Protect natural lands while allowing mountain biking

Subaru Extends Support for Trail Care Crew Program
Subaru of America, Inc. recently announced that it has extended its support of the acclaimed Trail Care Crew through 2009.

Western Spirit to Boost IMBA Membership Ranks
Former IMBA president, Ashley Korenblat, has extended a generous offer to help bolster IMBA's membership. Sign up for a Western Spirit cycling trip by March 31st, and they will upgrade your IMBA membership to the Fat Tire Friend level, and outfit you with an IMBA jersey (a $155 value).

Western Spirit runs trips throughout the US from March to October. If you'd like to unwind on a mellow cruise, check out the Grand Staircase in central Utah. Or if you're hankering for a major challenge, test your mettle on 5 days of singletrack above 10,000 feet on the Colorado Trail. Either way, the truck carries the gear, the guides do the cooking, and the beer will be cold. Contact Western Spirit at 800-845-2453.
