    Help Create List of Freeride Areas

    Hey All,

    IMBA is publishing our 3rd annual freeride guide inside the next issue of the IMBA newsletter. Like last year, we'll include a list of authorized public freeriding areas around the world. The goal is to help people find new places to ride and offer examples for other trailbuilders to follow.

    Please take a second to check out our list. If there is a place that we missed, tell us about it! I'm sure we've missed a few.

    The riding areas listed offer many different challenges, including naturally technical trails, trails with enhanced technical features, stunt parks, jumps and downhill runs - they all deserve a place on the list!

    Thanks, Pete

    Galbraith Mt. in Bellingham, WA

    Although it has XC and FR stuff there, I'd say it would qualify....

    Pete,

    Terry here, Central Illinois IMBA Rep., Dirksen Park has NO freeride areas. It did a few years back, but the park has been recently designated as land and water reserve and the stunts and jumps were removed. The trails there are still fantastic, but the "freeride" element is gone. USACE's Farmdale Reservoir Recreation Area, in East Peoria, IL does have legal and approved DH trails and a new MTX course (thanks to Kona, IMBA, and PAMBA). PAMBA hosts DH, XC, and MTX races their throughout spring, summer, and fall.

    just wanted to clarify...
