About the Video: It’s the story of four, high school “student athlete” mountain bikers who wanted to give back for their senior project by building and repairing the singletrack they pedaled weekly. Our Subaru-IMBA Trail Care Crew spent a weekend helping them and their classmates learn sustainable trail work.

  • New Rip van Wafels Flavor – In the past few months the folks at Rip van Wafels talked to many wafel-eaters and they heard from you that their Cocoa wafel wasn’t meeting your expectations.

Get ready for the rich chocolate taste of the newest Rip van Wafels flavor to knock the socks off your tastebuds – Dark Chocolate Sea Salt.

IMBA: “Ok teens, see this trail here? It’s much too narrow for a family of four to go down at the same time. Also, much too steep.. someone might have to actually use their small ring. Tsk tsk.”
