IMBA 2015 Colorado & Wyoming Region Summit

August 28, 2015 - August 30, 2015

Join the IMBA Colorado and Wyoming Region for our mountain bike summit at Glenwood Springs, CO, on August 28th-30thLet’s unpave the way forward and plan for the next decade of trails. The summit will be a great opportunity to network with volunteer advocates, land stewards, federal and state land managers, industry representatives and other IMBA partners from around Colorado and Wyoming.

Already this summer, gatherings in the Southeast, South Central, Mid-Atlantic and Great Lakes/Upper Midwest IMBA regions have produced tangible results for mountain bikers. “The world summit, last held in Steamboat Springs, is a great event—but the regions summits really facilitate projects, funding and planning at the state and local levels,” says Jason Bertolacci, IMBA Region Director for Colorado/Wyoming.
