IMBA’s Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day is a great opportunity for everyone, young or old, to experience mountain biking for the first time or to get back on the saddle again.

If you are looking for a fun activity for the whole family check out the Take A Kid (and Mom) Mountain Biking Day and Bike Safety Rodeo, in Grass Valley, California. This TKMBD event is being put on by the IMBA club YBONC (Youth Bicyclist of Nevada County), as part of IMBA’s 10th year of celebrating the TKMBD event. The event is nestled under tall pines in the historic Gold Country of Nevada County, adjacent to Condon Park Trails, and venue is at Lyman-Gilmore School.
