Just Days Left to Support Increased Mountain Biking in National Parks
IMBA urges mountain bikers to register comments in support of a proposed rule change that will make it easier for U.S. national parks to adopt mountain bike trails. With just days left in the commentary period we urgently need your voice -- please take action on this issue today. Already filed your comments? Send a reminder to someone who might still need a prompt!

John Bliss to Chair IMBA's Board of Directors
IMBA's board of directors recently selected John Bliss as its chairman. Bliss lives in Boulder, Colorado, and is an accomplished amateur racer. He has served on IMBA's board since November 2006 in an at-large position before accepting a one-year appointment to the chairman's seat. He succeeds Hill Abell, who held the post for several terms -- six years in total -- and will retain a seat on IMBA's board.

IMBA Adds Regional Positions, Seeks Directors for the Upper Midwest and Mid-Atlantic Regions
This year, IMBA will add regional directors in four regions: Mid-Atlantic, Mountain States, Pacific Coast and Upper Midwest. The Mountain States and Pacific Coast regions will be staffed with two IMBA veterans: Ryan Schutz and Anna Laxague (respectively). Both apprenticed as Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew members, and each brings a depth of local knowledge, as well as crucial nonprofit development and organizing experience, to their regions. Candidates for the Mid-Atlantic and Upper Midwest regions are encouraged to apply online.
