IMBA Trail Care Crew Comes to Canada
Toronto - The Canadian Mountain Bicycling Alliance (CMBA) will host the International Mountain Bicycling Associationâ€šs Trail Care Crew on August 6 - 10.
In just five months on the road, the two Subaru / IMBA Trail Care Crews have helped lead 115 projects in 25 states across the USA. Ric Balfour and Holly Hill (Trail Care Crew #2) have worked side by side with thousands of mountain bikers and hundreds of land managers since their Cactus Cup kick-off on March 15, 1998. Theyâ€šve also had a chance to ride with â€žlocalsâ€° in each place they stay.
Mountain bike advocates in Southern Ontario will truly benefit from Ric and Hollyâ€šs experience. Theyâ€šre visit to Southern Ontario begins Thursday, August 6th in Toronto with a â€žRide the Don Valley Trails with the IMBA Trail Care Crew - and plan for future maintenance projectsâ€°. Then on Friday the Crew will head out to Bloomfield, Ontario for a â€žTrail Opening & Dedicationâ€°, and survey the trails with local advocates from the Bloomfield Bicycle Club. On Saturday its up to the Collingwood area, and a trail day with the Beaver Valley Mountain Bike Club and the Ontario Cycling Association. Sunday and Monday will be spent in the Hamilton and Dundas areas meeting with local advocates and land managers. This is a pretty busy schedule for the Crew - but we think theyâ€šre up for it, given their previously hectic schedule.
The CMBA is supported by the Bicycle Trade Association of Canada.
