Trail Building School at Bike Arena Vsetin

Learn how to design and plan trails at the 2nd IMBA Trail Building School in Czech Republic

After the positive feedback on the last year Trail Building School we decided to continue in sucessful series of organizing such schools. Despite the fact that repetition is the mother of wisdom, host organisation CeMBA didn`t want  to repeate the previous concept. So this year`s school will be quite different. Without shovels, hoes and other tools we will focus on how plan the trail correctly and how to understand the trail design. 

This year the TBS will take place in newly opened bike resort Bike Arena Vsetin on the weekend of 20-21 September 2014. It will be conducted by Shane Wilson (USA) and Mark McClure (UK) from IMBA Trail Solutions who have extensive experience with designing and building trails in diverse natural conditions all around the world. They now share their expertise to by teaching trail building schools.

The school will be conducted in english, while there will be a translator to czech. Since the school is international, it is applicable for all trailbuilders or those, who want to become trailbuilders, no matter where they come from. If you are interested in participating just fill out the registration form, pay the fee, come and enjoy with us.
