IMBA’s Take a Kid Mountain Biking


mtbKIDday_webJoin us on Sunday, October 2nd for the 8th Annual International Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day, supported by the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA). We’ll meet 10 am at the Lajitas Airport Trailhead for some fun adventure on Loops 2 and 3 (with options for distance and difficulty). Have your bike checked and your helmet fitted while we gather (helmets required). Each young rider will need their responsible adult. Join us at Desert Sports for an after ride social with refreshments and hula hoops.
TKMBD_09In support of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative, IMBA has pledged to get 30,000 children participating in 300 cycling events on Oct. 1 (with IMBA’s blessing, we are holding ours on the 2nd). Our local ride is brought to you by Desert Sports and Big Bend Trails Alliance along with our host Lajitas Golf Resort and Spa.

    We had to change our date to Sunday, Oct. 2nd (with IMBA’s blessing) due to scheduling conflicts. Hope y’all can join us!

      Do you want to ride with us and watch the kids leave us in the dust? The after party at Desert Sports with hot dogs and hoops will be fun. We, who have no kids, help those that do!

    Hey, we are planning a hotdog cook-out after the rides. If you are planning on attending the festivities, let us now so we’ll know how many dog to bring to the party.
