2021 Annual Fall Membership Drive

Smiles for Miles

Mountain biking is a great way for families to recreate together! With more and more trails being developed closer to home that fit the skills of a variety of riders, it’s more important than ever to support your local trail organization today.

Good quality trails don’t magically appear, trails happen because organizations like STORM, our dedicated members, and volunteers make them happen. Whether it’s building and maintaining trails, leading group rides, teaching kids about the trails, or advocating for more trails and trail feature with local leaders, the volunteers of STORM are out there making a difference for the future of mountain biking in the San Antonio area.

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.

Remember to click the “+ Bring a Friend or Child” option to sign up your child(ren) for the event and the IMBA drawing.


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.

You acknowledge the following:
a. You are not infected with COVID-19 or have been in contact with someone who does have it.
b. You have not had or been experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms in the past 14 days.
c. You should wear a Face Mask/Coverings when Physical Distancing or 6ft is not able to be followed.

This event is “weather permitting” and dependent on trail conditions for the protection of the trail system.
