Spring 2003 IMBA/Koobi Club Assistance Grants Awarded
Four bicycle groups will receive cash awards in the first round of 2003 IMBA/Koobi Club Assistance Grants. The $500 grants support projects that preserve and enhance trail opportunities for mountain bikers.

The 2003 IMBA/Koobi Club Assistance Grants first-round winners are:

* Durango-San Juan Mountain Bike Patrol, Durango, Colorado-This grant will help start the DSJMBP. The patrol will provide on-the-trail assistance in the Durango and San Juan Mountain area. They will work in conjunction with Trails 2000, city officials and land managers.

* Batesville Independence Knobby Explorers, Batesville, Arkansas-The Koobi/IMBA award will support the construction of an informational kiosk at the trailhead of a new 75-mile trail system in the Sylamore district.

* Gateway Riders, Cornwall, Ontario, Canada -The Gateway Riders were instrumental in developing the Charlottenburgh Forest Mountain Bike Area. Grant funds will help create educational kiosks throughout this popular trail system. The kiosks will list IMBA's Rules of the Trail and offer tips on trail etiquette, safety and skills.

* San Diego Mountain Bike Association, San Diego, California-Koobi grant funds will pay for new trail markers and trailhead kiosks in Black Mountain Park. SDMBA has been the most active group in this rapidly growing, multi-use trail system.

Colorado Springs-based Koobi is an innovative maker of high-performance bicycle saddles. The support comes to IMBA from the Koobi Freedom Foundation, which was established in 2002 to fund important access and trail advocacy projects.

Koobi and IMBA will award four more grants in 2003. The application deadline for the next round is July 1, 2003. All IMBA-affiliated clubs are invited to apply. For more information please visit:
