    Ales and Trails benefit for IMBA CA - Sunday, August 12th, 2012
    For the tenth consecutive year, the trails and the beer will be flowing at China Camp State Park in San Rafael on August 12th!

    Bring all your riding buddies (or your family, too) out to the tenth annual Ales and Trails - Benefit for IMBA California sponsored by Marin Bikes. Enjoy the morning coffee and bagels, bike demos, skills zone & clinics, and group rides for all abilities led by pro riders and instructors. Afterwards, feast on a gourmet BBQ prepared by the Culinary Institute of America’s Chef Patrick Clark and beer garden serving from seven local breweries. Free bike tune-ups, live music, silent auction and much more fun! All proceeds go directly to IMBA California.

    This is an excellent event for riders of all levels. Beginner-specific rides will be lead by local pros all morning long, and skills clinics throughout the day offer hands on help to hone in the skills you want to develop.
