OCTOBER 16, 2021
IMBA’s Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day (TKMBD) is celebrated annually on the first Saturday in October. In 2021, STORM is hosting the TKMBD on Saturday, October 16th.
Created in 2004 and recognized by the U.S. Congress, TKMBD introduces the joy of mountain biking to the next generation. Hundreds of thousands of youth have discovered and celebrated the joy of pedaling two wheels on dirt at TKMBD events. Many have gone on to become passionate riders, volunteer trail advocates, and even high school mountain bike racers.
This year, IMBA has supplied snacks, stickers, and number plates for the kids.

Participants must bring a trail worthy bike and helmet to join the group rides. Parents/guardians may accompany their child on the rides. All participating adults and youth must sign up through Golden Volunteer link above and accept the liability waiver.
Volunteers will lead young mountain bikers out on a tour of the McAllister Park trails in groups based on skill level. We will have a short skills clinic before riding the trails. There is also the pump track and beginner skills course riders can practice on before or after riding the trails.
“Challenge by Choice” means no rider is expected to ride any obstacle they don’t feel comfortable riding. We’re there to have fun on the trails.
