Breaking News: National Park Service Listening Sessions
As this edition of the Singletrack eNews was being prepared, IMBA learned that the National Park Service (NPS) will hold nationwide listening sessions March 13-29. California's session will be held in Los Angeles on March 29th. IMBA and the NPS have partnered to create new mountain biking opportunities, these sessions will provide a great opportunity to strengthen that relationship, and to advocate for better bike access. IMBA's home page will be updated when a confirmed schedule, meeting agendas and talking points become available.

FOX 'Free the Trail' T-Shirts Support IMBA California
Purchase a new Free The Trail T-shirt from FOX and help support California's IMBA office. The $15 shirts are available in both men's and women's styles. The design, commissioned renowned Bay Area artist Steve Smith, features an idyllic mountain bike scene put behind bars -- hence Free The Trail. "We had such great fundraising success with the first Free The Trail T-shirt, we knew we had to keep Free The Trail alive and continue its success," stated Elayna Caldwell, Marketing Manager at FOX. Get one for yourself and help support Mountain Biking in the great state of California.

2007 Kona Grants Announced
In 2007, Kona Bicycle Company and IMBA will once again award cash grants to fund the development of freeriding, downhilling, and dirt jumping projects. IMBA-affiliated clubs in North America are invited to apply for thirteen $1,000 awards. The application deadline is April 15, 2007, and the grants will be awarded in May, 2007. Funding for the program comes from Kona and the Kona/IMBA Buck-A-Bowl bowling tournament, an annual Las Vegas fundraiser held during Interbike, the bicycle industry trade show.

IMBA is teaming with Rocky Mountain Bicycles' highly regarded California Wilderness campaign.
