It’s never too early to get ’em rolling in the dirt.
IMBA will celebrate it’s sixth annual Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day on Saturday, October 2 with simultaneous events held around the world.
Can’t find an event near you? Organize your own, register it by September 15 and you will be sent a Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day Event-in-a-Box, which will include official Race Plates, and special kids stickers to give away as prizes. Your event will also be eligible for the Specialized Raffle of 2 (boys/girls) Hot Rock 24 7 speed bikes.
The annual event celebrates the life of Jack Doub, an avid teenage mountain biker from North Carolina who had a true passion for the sport from an early age but passed away in 2002. Funding is provided by the Jack Doub Memorial Endowment. The event takes place each year on the first Saturday in October.
