Join IMBA for Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day

IMBA has joined forces with the Let’s Move! campaign to get 30,000 kids on mountain bikes on October 1.

More than 20,000 kids participated in coordinated events in 2010 and IMBA hopes the support of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! campaign will get even more kids on bikes on October 1.

IMBA is encouraging all participants to sign up for the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA), whereby you pledge to be active at least 5 days a week for 6 weeks. Youth (6-17 years) should get moving for at least 60 minutes per day, and adults (18 years or older) should be active for 30 minutes per day.

Registration for TKMBD event organizers is now open! Register your local event and additional information will be made available to you in coming weeks. Assistance and nationwide events are conducted by IMBA clubs and chapters, retailers, volunteer groups and numerous Trips for Kids chapters. Corporate sponsors are welcome to join in support of this nation-wide effort.
