“TAKE A KID MOUNTAIN BIKING” DAY
Thu, 10 Nov 2011 09:37 PM EST

The 2011 edition of IMBA’s Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day was a huge success, with more than 1,890 Canadians taking part, according to estimates from event organizers. A relatively huge turnout for the event proves just how much people in the community value the activity as a wholesome and healthy event. Betting lines

Around the globe, more than 230 events took place on the October 1st weekend, with well over 21,000 kids and families in attendance. “We’re very excited about the growth of Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day in Canada, especially since Parks Canada has come on board to promote the program,” said Lora Woolner, IMBA Canada’s executive director. “This is the biggest event that we know of that encourages youth to get outside and ride bikes in a natural setting.”

Across Canada, events were held in conservation areas, provincial parks, and four National Parks – ranging from low-key rides to extravagant events with hundreds of participants joining in the fun. Rides were also held in Australia, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, South Africa and the United States. The activity not only helps to bring families together, but also to promote environmental values.

This year marks the eighth installment of the international event — which challenges adults and biking clubs to introduce kids to the sport of mountain biking. Since its inception in 2004, IMBA’s Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day has put an estimated 63,000 kids and adults on bikes. It’s a pretty positive activity all in all since it brings a lot of people together. Sports scores
