New York City Sees New Riding Facility
The master trailbuilders on IMBA's Trail Solutions team team recently teamed with sponsored SRAM riders Jeff Lenosky and Kyle Ebbett to create a unique, urban trail project in New York City's Highbridge Park. Judd de Vall, a former pro downhiller and expert trail designer who now works with Trail Solutions, contributed this dirt-sculpting prowess to the project. Read a news release, with a link for an action-packed video clip.

Bike Advocates Flood Capitol Hill
The National Bike Summit is the premier annual cycling advocacy event in our nation's capital; IMBA is proud to have been a leading sponsor in 2007.

Action Alert Protects Ohio Trails
