The annual STORM / IMBA Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day (TKMBD) is scheduled for October 5th, 2019. See the Events calendar for more details.
While STORM hosts the STORM Kidz ride on the first Saturday of every month year-round, October 5th will be particularly important as we will be partnering with the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) to host the Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day (TKMBD) event in conjunction with other mountain biking organizations across the country.
In addition to new trail riders – young and old — there will be many middle school and high school aged student athletes from the local NICA Two10 MTB Racing teams, bicycle shop-sponsored teams, and youth development teams in attendance.
