IMBA California Leadership Council Convenes
The first meeting of the IMBA California Leadership Council was recently held in Sacramento.

The Council meets once each year with follow-up quarterly conference calls.

Mountain Bikers Meet with East Bay Park Officials
IMBA California and the Bicycle Trails Council of East Bay met with East Bay Park officials in Oakland to discuss the status of bike access in Regional Parks. Park managers were sympathetic to the request for more bike access and are willing to work with us.Mountain bike representatives will be supplying Park management with data on successful multi-use trails.
