Many Trails, One Province, One Voice - Shaping Mountain Biking in Ontario
2009 IMBA Canada Provincial Summit - Kitchener, ON - September 25-27, 2009
The Ontario Mountain Bike Summit is less than a week away, and if you haven't already RSVP'd, we hope you'll consider joining mountain bike leaders and advocates from across the province to help shape the future of our sport.
Topics will include the creation of a provincial leadership body, bike parks and sustainable trails, youth outreach, and growing local capacity for the 40+ clubs and patrols in IMBA’s Ontario network. In addition to informative seminars and networking, the gathering will feature great parties and plenty of riding -- organized by the Waterloo Cycling Club and the Guelph Off-Road Bicycling Association. View a detailed agenda here.
The IMBA Summit is open to the public. Cost of registration has been kept to a minimum to encourage maximum participation from across the mountain biking spectrum. The $75 registration fee includes: access to all summit sessions, including the pre-conference trailbuilding workshop; Saturday and Sunday lunch and snacks; entry to the Chicopee Bike Park during the conference weekend; access to all group rides; conference booklet and swag.
