IMBA Singletrack Advice

IMBA, the International Mountain Bicycling Association has lots of great ideas and tips to improve your off-road excursions. Here are ten great tips:

1. Bells are a great way to let your fellow trail users know that you're approaching. Just be careful not to ring yours too close to horses or hikers.

2. Keep your groups small - no more than four. You'll minimize your impact and won't disrupt others.

3. Trailwork is fun. Get involved with your local club and attend their next trail event.

4. The next time you see a park ranger introduce yourself and strike up a conversation. By earning their respect, we'll preserve great places to ride.

5. Teach a kid to ride. It should be part of growing up.

6. Take a date or friend on a trailwork event. Girls (and guys) love to play in the dirt!

7. Buy your riding buddy an IMBA membership.

8. If you see trash on a ride, pick it up - especially the energy bar wrappers and inner tubes that give cyclists a bad name.

9. Once per ride, stop and chat with a hiker or horseback rider. We are all part of the trail community and need to get along.

10. Volunteer for a park board or trails committee.
