Saturday, October 3, 2009, is IMBA’s Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day.
If you haven’t heard of this before, there’s a list of officially organized events here, or you can just grab your kid or a friend’s kid and hit the trails.
IMBA’s International Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day 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.
Assistance is provided by Trips for Kids, helping disadvantaged kids discover mountain biking since 1988! Trips for Kids chapters nationwide make a difference in kids’ lives by opening their world to mountain biking. By starting a Trips for Kids Chapter in your town, you can take disadvantaged kids on mountain biking all year round. Learn how to start a chapter.
